On Saturday, November 4,2017 Kent School is hosting an Admission Open House from 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm. Families are invited to learn about Kent School beginning with a formal program in the Library at 1:00pm with Nancy Mugele, Head of School, and student speakers. After the formal program, children ages 3 – 5 may visit our Little School and do a fun fall themed activity with Little School Director, Bonnie Williams. Children 6 and under are invited to an open gym session and children from ages 7 to 12 are invited to participate in Chesapeake Bay Studies/STEM activities. Parents should remain on campus with their children throughout the programs and will have the opportunity to tour the campus and attend a Q&A session.
Bonnie Williams, Director of Little School at Kent School will open the classroom for an arts and crafts session. “We have a great variety of fall activities. I am looking forward to sharing them. Once the children finish, they are welcome to head over to the gym or if they need a break from jumping, running and climbing, they can cool down in Little School.” The M.V. “Mike” Williams Gymnasium will be outfitted with tumbling mats, a rope climb and other age-appropriate obstacle course activities. Children will be supervised during parent tours. Erin Kent, Kent School’s Director of Athletics said, “These events are always popular. It is a fun Saturday activity and the children have a blast. It is a wonderful way for parents to get to know a bit more about everything that Kent School has to offer.”
Hannah Richardson, Middle School Science Teacher, has prepared a series of hands-on, inquiry based activities that mirror a portion of the Chesapeake Bay Studies curriculum used at Kent School. “For children 7 to 12, we will do some water quality experiments. The children will have the opportunity to learn about and work with the terrapins our students are raising. And create a Chesapeake food web art project. We will also have time to work in maker-space stations in our library. If your children are interested in science, creating, building, or our environment, this afternoon session is for them.” Richardson continued, “It’s fun to think about the material I teach as a source of fun for others.”
Throughout the afternoon, parents will have the opportunity to see classrooms, meet teachers, speak with Head of School, Nancy Mugele and learn more about Kent School’s financial assistance program. Mugele said, “I am eager to share why I believe a Kent School education is the best investment a family can make. Our research informed teaching with mind, brain and education science provides an excellent learning experience in a child’s most transformative years. And we are able to help each child reach their full potential for academic, artistic, athletic and moral excellence in a joyful, student-centered environment.”
