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.
