Jewish Heritage Month
Gabby Liberman spoke about how her Jewish congregation has provided a loving community that loves and supports all people, especially those who may be viewed as strangers.
Ms. Warren and Ms. Naggar spoke about the progress towards the acceptance of Judaism in the United States and Kent Place since Jewish people make up only about 2% of the global population yet their ethno-religion has been around for over 3500 years old. For information on the creation of Jewish Heritage month check out this article. You can also learn some about a bunch of RBG’s Jewish role models by looking at the papers taped up around the school.

Zoom Pal Program
Kent Place's first ever international-virtual pen pal program had a very successful first year! I want to give a special thanks to the Spanish Teachers that helped me bring my idea to life and carried out the ZoomPal Program. Here are some pictures of the students. Thank you to all of you for your continued participation and passion for learning the Spanish language. ~Karla P.

This week and next week I will be organizing a collection of used or new soccer equipment.This includes cleats, socks, shin guards, and soccer balls (any size). All of the items collected will be donated to Peace Passers. Peace Passers is an organization that donates used soccer equipment to teams, sports ministries, etc. in the US and around the world who can’t afford the equipment to support their teams so, with this equipment, they would have an opportunity to play. Look out for a collection bin in the tiled area. Please donate any old soccer stuff that you have!!! (If you don't have any soccer equipment but still want to support, you can make a monetary donation! Look out for flyers with QR codes around the school to donate money!)
