    Kenrose Elementary

    "I love the teachers at Kenrose. They are nice, and they help me learn." - KES student Avery Howe

    "Kenrose is the best place to work. Our kids are so kind and so unique. We have all been counting down the days until the students get to showcase their pride for their amazing cultures and home countries during our KES International Week May 1-5. During this week we also have a renewed sense of pride for our KES family as a whole. Kenrose truly is special." - KES teacher Brittney Ray

    Spring Station Middle

    "My favorite thing about Spring Station Middle is the people. I have a good group of friends here." - SSMS Ellie Chatfield

  • The Kenrose Elementary Green Team celebrated Earth Day by getting the whole school involved.

    On April 20-21, the Green Team hosted a recycling drive in the morning car lines, where families could drop off their recycling at the school. This is the first time since 2019 that Kenrose Elementary has hosted the drive.

    "We are collecting tin, aluminum, plastic and mixed paper," said KES teacher Mallory Hampton. "We're doing this to help bring awareness to keeping our Earth clean. The Green Team collects all the recycling bins in the school, and we just help keep the school tidy."

  • Art students at Spring Station Middle are getting their hands messy.

    SSMS art teacher Kyelee Hudson is teaching her students about paper mache during their latest project. Students were tasked with designing and building a vacation home out of cardboard. Once they are built, the class uses shredded newspapers and magazines to cover the structures.

    "We're going to use white paper as the final layer," said SSMS student Ellie Chatfield. "Then we will paint over it however we want."
