Hello Davey Families!
On September 23, 2016 our Davey Elementary students will be participating in our DAVEY DASH fundraiser, and we are looking for volunteers to assist the day of our event. Students will walk or jog around the Davey track as many times as possible during their “race time”. Kindergarten – 2nd Grade will participate from 10:00am-11:15am and 3rd Grade – 5th Grade will participate from 1:30pm-2:45pm. Weather permitting, we encourage any and all family members to join us and cheer on our Davey Dragons!!
Thank you in advance for your help!

CogAT and Iowa
The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) will be administered to students in grade 2 and 4 for the next two weeks, beginning on September 19, 2016. Testing will be administered for 2 weeks in short increments.
The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) measures students’ learned reasoning abilities in the three areas most linked to academic success in school: Verbal, Quantitative and Nonverbal. Although its primary goal is to assess students’ reasoning abilities, CogAT can also provide predicted achievement scores when administered with the Iowa Tests.
While CogAT is well-suited to help educators make important student placement decisions, such as selecting students for Gifted and Talented programs, exclusive features such as the Ability Profile Score can be used to expand the educational opportunities of all students.
- Please see that your child gets rest on the nights before these tests.
- Please make sure that your child eats a nourishing breakfast each day.
- Make every effort to have your child in school and on time except in case of illness.

Dear Elementary Families,
Welcome back to the 2016-2017 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 children and enjoy the game.
We would like to remind you that football games are a school event that require parent supervision. Because this is not a DROP OFF event, elementary students must be accompanied by a parent or other supervising adult AT ALL TIMES. There will be an elementary administrator walking through the elementary section at various times during the game. Should you need anything during a game, please locate a KCS staff member or a Kent Police Officer for assistance.
In an effort to ensure the safety of ALL community members, playing football and other sporting activities will not be permitted in the open areas of the stadium during the game. If students bring footballs and other balls into the elementary section these items will be taken and held until the end of the game. Elementary students are encouraged to stay seated with their parents.
Please help us make Friday nights fun and safe for everyone. We will see you at the game! GO RIDERS!!!!!!!!!!!
