Effective for the 2010-2011 school year, the Kent City Schools will be offering an introductory Arabic course to RHS students and the current 7th & 8th graders at SMS (Classes of 2015 & 2014 respectively).

Rome 2011 – Meeting rescheduled for this Thursday (1/14)

Because of weather conditions last Thursday, we have rescheduled a meeting for this Thursday. We will be meeting from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. in Room 138. If you are unable to attend, please check out the flyer we put together.

If you would like additional info, or have questions, please contact Mr. Susel (ke_rsusel@kentschools.net) or Mr. Phillips (ke_jphillips@kentschools.net).

By the way… the early registration deadline of January 15, 2010, will lock in the 2009 prices (note: the cost of this trip is not only less expensive than the 2009 trip, but it is only $60 more expensive than the 2007 trip was!), so there are definitely advantages to getting on board early.

Ciao!
