CALENDAR/EVENTS

SCHOOL CALENDAR

Our wonderful office staff maintains the official School Calendar.  Be sure to read The Frog Log (emailed to parents and staff (approximately) each week) and refer to the Calendar often for important news and information.

HUG-PTO CALENDAR

See below for a current listing of all dates of note/importance for Kenwood Elementary School.  As events and notes of importance are made available to us, we will update this webpage.

HUG-PTO MEETINGS

We are all so busy, but we hope you can join us at some of our meetings. We meet on the first Wednesday of each month, unless otherwise posted, at 6:30 p.m. in our Library/Media Center. It is a wonderful way to meet other parents and staff in addition to being well informed of all the great things going on within our school. No sitter? No worries – we have you covered! FREE childcare is available for the duration of each of our meetings. An agenda for each meeting will be posted on www.hugpto.org and on facebook.
