  • Monday, Sept. 26 - Walk & Wheel To School Day!

    We are having our annual Walk and Wheel Day on Monday, September 26th and hope lots of students and families will participate. October is Walk to School month and this will be a great way to kick it off. You should be receiving a copy of Kentville's "Active Routes to School" map today with your child. This is an initiative of KCA, Kentville, and the Central Kings Community Health Board. We hope it will be a valuable tool in helping you to encourage your kids to walk, bike, wheel to school this year. Doing so will promote a healthy lifestyle and academic success. It could also play a big role in reducing the congestion and traffic in the mornings around the school.
