‘Janus’ achieves excellence
The Kenston High School literary magazine, “Janus,” was honored with a rank of “Excellent” in the 2019 National College of Teachers of English Program - REALM Award (Recognize Excellence in Art and Literary Magazines). More than 325 schools entered the 2019 program, and Kenston was one of five Ohio schools to receive this honor.
Kenston High School will hold parent-teacher conferences on Feb. 15 from 4-8 p.m. in the high school gymnasium. The parent-teacher conference is an opportunity for parents to learn about their child’s progress in school and for teachers to gain insight into their student’s home and community lives. The high school utilizes an “open” format with teachers at individual tables, set up in the gym where parents can stop to see any or all of their child’s teachers. During the school year, utilize Infinite Campus to check students’ weekly progress.
