Elementary Section at Rough Rider Football Games

August 25, 2015

Dear Elementary Families,

Welcome back to the 2015-16 school year! The beginning of school is such an exciting time for all students and their families. With that excitement comes a great opportunity for family fun, and school spirit…. Rough Rider football!!

The Kent City Schools administration invites you to join us on Friday nights for home football games. It is a great way to be part of the community of Kent, and to introduce your children to the spirit of the Rough Riders. In an effort to encourage and include our elementary families, we have designated an ELEMENTARY FAMILY SECTION that is located at the north end of the stadium. Please feel free to sit in this section with your family and children and enjoy the game.

We would like to remind you that football games are a school event that requires parent supervision. Students should be accompanied by a parent or other supervising adult AT ALL TIMES. As always, there will be administrators present and stationed at different posts throughout the stadium. Should you need anything during a game, please let one of us know.

In an effort to ensure the safety of ALL community members at the game, football or other sporting activities will not be permitted in the open areas of the stadium during the game. Students are encouraged to stay seated with their parents when not traveling to and from the concession stand. Please help us make Friday nights fun and safe for everyone. We will see you at the game! GO RIDERS!!!!!!!!!!!

Counseling for Wellness

Kelly’s Grief Center and the counselors from Counseling for Wellness in conjunction with the Kent City School counselors are pleased to announce the beginning of an outreach program in your child’s school. Any child who has experienced a loss due to the death of a parent, grandparent, relative, friend or pet is welcome to attend these grief groups.

These 6-8 week grief groups will be run by the counselors from Counseling for Wellness. Funding for this wonderful program is being provided by the Kelly Reeves Foundation. Every effort will be made to schedule these 30-40 minute sessions at a time that would be least invasive to your child’s learning time at school.

If you feel participation in a grief group would benefit your child and provide them with some extra support, please contact your school counselor at the number listed below and/or complete the form below and return it to your school counselor. Prior to the actual group beginning, a permission slip to attend will be sent home along with the time and dates that the group will be held.
