Message from Kenter Canyon Principal

E-mail Print PDF

Kenter School offers a unique experience to its students because of the collaborative work between the dedicated staff and the incredible involvement of its parents. The parent is the child's first teacher and plays an integral part of their child's learning process.

I believe we must work together to ensure a safe and positive learning environment that teaches children how to be safe, respectful, and responsible citizens, as well as thinkers, discoverers, and inquirers. Together, we will continue to make a difference in the lives of the children at Kenter. We need parents to help us be involved in solutions, not just the reporting of problems. Together, we can make ordinary things extraordinary.

The most important thing for us to remember as parents and staff is our purpose. We have a tremendous faculty who is striving to bring a coherent program aligned to the state learning standards in an enthusiastic and productive manner. Their strong academic program coupled with a strong parental involvement body will create an even more successful learning community.

Please know that I will strive each day to make the best of every child even better. Please contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if you have suggestions, dismays, compliments, or just wish to discuss your child’s needs.
