This P.E.A.K. initiative is to put Kindness into action at Kenston. Kindness Counts cards have been distributed to K-12 students and staff. We believe that kindness is contagious. You can now track the journey by logging onto www.kenstonkindness.org to see the ripple that one act of kindness can make. Pass it on!
The Mission of the Kenston Local School District is for each student to achieve individual academic excellence and to maximize personal growth in a community which demonstrates and develops mutual respect, responsibility, and life-long learning.
In accordance with our district mission, six essential elements have been identified that encompass our continuous efforts to maintain a safe environment where students, staff, and members of the public behave in a manner toward themselves and others that instills a harmonious existence within our school environment and at all school related events.
In each building there is a place and people available for students and staff to confidentially report, share, and/or discuss concerns. Every effort is made to maintain anonymity to prevent repercussions of any kind. Examples include:
PARENT/FAMILY/ COMMUNITY EDUCATION
A variety of information and resources related to maintaining peaceful schools are communicated on a regular basis throughout the school year.
Kenston students, staff and members of the public are expected to behave in a manner that shows respect for themselves and others during the school day and at all school related events. Each building regularly reviews specific behavioral expectations that support peaceful schools. Examples:
The Kenston School District regularly emphasize key qualities that encourage positive and respectful actions toward oneself and others, and also promotes the development of the necessary life skills to live and prosper in a peaceful environment.
Training for staff focuses on sustaining awareness of the goals set for the Kenston Local Schools peaceful program to promote a harmonious climate and respect within our District.
