Kent Lutheran’s Partnership with Kent Elementary School

Since 2008, Kent Lutheran Church has been affiliated with our local Kent Elementary School. This school has 600+ students, over 80% of them qualifying for free-and-reduced lunch. We have had as many as 8 individuals volunteering over the years. Our primary objective is to assist the teachers – and students! – in the classroom. In addition, we have been involved in many other projects: providing school supplies for the start of school, filling backpacks with the required materials for each grade level. We have sewn capes for the reading recognition project and chair pockets for an entire classroom, provided lunch for teachers on workshop days, chaperoned field trips, and assisted with family activities at the school.
