Welcome to

Kendon Elementary School

PreK-3

 



The Leader in Me Kendon Elementary School is a caring community school where students spend an abundant amount of time constructing, exploring and experiencing their world. We believe students can learn how to become the best that they can be when students view themselves as writers, readers, mathematicians, scientists, engineers, artists and so much more.

Students are engaged in academic and discovery lessons with many community partnerships where they make personal connections; take part of meaningful projects that bring excitement to their learning.  We believe that each child has unique strengths and learning styles that can be used to benefit his or her learning achievement.
