  • Choices Yield Better Academic Results

    Vivienne Falanga, Fourth Grade Teacher

    Each year at Kent School, our Head of School, Nancy Mugele, chooses a word of the year that guides us in thoughts, actions and writing. This year, the word that guides is GRATEFUL. At the start of the school year, everyone at Kent School received a Gratitude Journal. We encourage students and employees to take a moment each day to share one thing for which we are grateful. The students also learned the song, Grateful: A Love Song to the World by Nimo Patel and Daniel Nahmod. We created this video to share that celebrates all that we are grateful for at Kent School. We hope you enjoy it.
