You are invited to attend a strategic planning session

I will also be meeting with interested community members on Wednesday, February 27, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Woodward Room, 2nd floor of the Kent Free Library. Our final Community Forum for Future Planning will be held Thursday, March 7, in the Holden Elementary gym at 6 p.m.  I hope to see you there!

Trauma expert rescheduled for Wednesday, February 13
      Nationally known speaker Dr. Joe Hendershott will speak from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Roosevelt auditorium on Wednesday, February 13.  Hendershott’s definition of trauma includes students dealing        with abuse, neglect, violence and poverty, as well as those affected  by death, divorce, bullying or rejection.  He offers unique insights into the effects of trauma and ways to help all students learn and succeed. Everyone is welcome to attend this free talk.
