Mrs. Murphy’s Weekly Updates: Here


Dr. Barovero

Students will read their mid-trimester comments during Advisory on Thursday, January 27th. You will also have to fill out a reflection after reviewing your comments and grade report.


Mrs. Smith

On Monday, January 24, Upper School students will engage in our annual well-being survey. The survey will be given at 2:30 during Seminar in your advisory groups. The results from this survey will allow us to learn how to best support the well-being and positive development among our community. This survey will be administered by Authentic Connections - which is a company that focuses on scientific data and research with schools very similar to Kent Place. This survey is confidential, and the data we collect from this survey is only as good as the input. So on January 24th we are asking each student to be honest with your responses, so we can continue to move toward our goal of supporting student health and wellness as best we can. Please see Mrs. Smith if you have any questions about this upcoming well-being survey.
