Kent School is ready to begin a one month literacy initiative called
 'For the Love of Books'. 

We have a month of book-related activities scheduled, with many ways for students of all ages to read, talk, and learn about great books, great authors, and great stories. Check the bulletin board outside the library door to follow the events. A few highlights...

  • Canadian author Julie Lawson visits Kent School !!! We are so excited to welcome Julie Lawson to our school, to learn about how she writes books, and have her share her stories with us. If you have copies of her books bring them along to have her sign them. We have a stack of her books in the school library for everyone to read. Read one before she comes and join in the book talk. 
For the love of books - fun all February long.
Happy reading !
