THANK YOU FROM THE KENT HEIGHTS PTA!
As the school year comes to a close, the Kent Heights PTA would like to thank the community for all its support throughout the year, but especially to those that supported this year’s Run for Fun and Silent Auction.
Despite the poor weather, our annual Run for Fun was well attended and a lot of fun! We would like to thank and commend our generous event sponsors for their support; East Providence Cycle, Evergreen House Health Center, Graphic Ink, National Center for Safe Routes to School and Specht Physical Therapy. The PTA would like to recognize the event’s co-chairs, Valerie Perron and Jenn Enos for their hard work and efforts to the event’s success.
This year’s Silent Auction was also extremely successful with over 150 auction and raffle prizes raising over $8,000 for our school. The proceeds helped us continue to enhance the education and enrichment of our students as well as continue forward with safety measures to improve our school.
