KAC PTA’s 2016 Founders Day Celebration Dinner will be held on April 22nd at Kent Meridian High School from 6 to 9 pm. This year’s theme is TODAY’S READERS….TOMORROW’S LEADERS.
KAC is proud to endorse the Kent School District Capital Improvement and School Construction Bond on the April ballot!
The Kent School District is one of the largest and most diverse in the state. Steady enrollment growth in Covington and the Kent valley along with class size reduction mandates from the State of Washington have created a need for new schools and more classrooms across the District.
There are schools being used in the Kent School District today that were built in the 1930s and critical infrastructure maintenance and repairs are needed in all but a handful of buildings.
The April 26th Capital Improvement and School Construction Bond will build new elementary schools in Covington and the Kent Valley. It will add another 20 new classrooms across the district where they are needed most. The Bond will also pay for 9 new multipurpose rooms, 33 new ADA access ramps, 9 new fire alarm systems, 10 renovated sports firs facilities and 12 new roofs.
The 2016 Bond reduces overcrowding and funds needed projects at EVERY school without raising our tax rate.
Please join your neighbors and vote YES for our kids and schools by April 26th!
KAC general membership meetings are the fourth Monday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Kent School District Administration Building board room at 12033 SE 256th Street.
