Excellent Again!

   For the 11th consecutive year, Kenston has earned a "Perfect" on the State Report Card.  We are one of only a handfull of districts that can boast of this achievement.  Once again, our Performance Index increased to 107.2 placing us in the top 5% in the state.

2011 Kenston Wind Turbine Ground Breaking
Wind Turbine Groundbreaking

Kilowatts for Kenston, Project K2 is underway! Beth Krause, Tom Fussner, Joan Hamilton, Kenston Senior and Envirothon President Hannah Seller, Superintendent Bob Lee, former state representative Matt Dolan, Anne Randall, Bill Timmons and Linda Hein recently broke ground for the district's wind turbine project. The long awaited project is one of the first in northeast Ohio. Upon completion in the Spring of 2012, the  65 meter tower with blades of 54 meters is expected to generate $160,000 in savings for the district.

Food for Thought


   Play Blue incorporates both wellness goals and the "New P.E." curriculum.  New P.E. places a greater focus on recreation, fitness and social well-being.  District wellness goals emphasized through Play Blue, focus on nutrition and education.
