January is Mental Health Awareness Month at Kenowa Hills.
Zinser is focusing on mental health awareness by painting Kenowa Green for the month of January! This week’s focus was “What is Mental Health?” Ask your student what mental health means to them. Zinser will have a “Wear Green” day every Friday in January for Mental Health Awareness!

News from our Nurse
If your student or a household member has Covid-19 please notify Nurse Courtney. You will not be contacted by the Health Department but these cases must be reported and monitored within the school. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation! Please reach out to Nurse Courtney at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions
Background checks must be completed annually by anyone volunteering at least 3 days prior to volunteering! Forms can be completed in the school office or at the administration office. A photo ID will be required.
Individual treats or “gifts” are not encouraged again this school year. Instead, we are encouraging you to donate a book to your child’s classroom in honor of them and their birthday. You are welcome to personalize the book or we can do it for you.
You can have your child visit the office or Mr. Willick for a birthday pencil!
We do not want birthday invitations to be passed out to students during the school day. A student may pass out invitations if everyone in the class will receive one, or a parent can discreetly give some invitations to the teacher, who can place them in backpacks.
Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without an understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.PERSONAL MASTERY SPECIAL EDUCATION ENGLISH LEARNERS TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM
