We are so excited to partner with The River Church and Kendall PTO to host a Special Persons Dinner! 

This is a chance for your student to invite someone special to eat dinner with them here at Kendall Elementary. This special person can be anyone who has an impact in your student's life — a family member or guardian, a friend, a mentor, a teacher, a coach, etc. We want to celebrate our students and the people in their life who are important to them.

We will host our Special Persons Dinner on Feb. 21. We will be serving pizza and desserts to all students who RSVP and the people who are special to them. Each student can invite up to two special people. 

>> NOTE: Students and their special people can only attend if we receive a competed RSVP form by Friday, Feb. 8! (This is to ensure we have enough food for everyone in attendance.)

After you turn in your RSVP, we will send you information regarding the time of the dinner. 

If you have any questions, please contact the school office, 765-662-7364.
