Denver Bronco's David Bruton Jr. visits Kenton 3rd Grade Students

Bronco at Kenton

 Bruton spoke to students about reading over the summer and the importance of literacy. His new charity foundation, Bruton's Books, will focus on improving reading proficiency for students from kindergarten through third grade. The foundation is partnering with Colorado Reading Corps and School Partners to help schools in low-income areas of Denver. Together the organizations will provide tutoring opportunities and reading supplies.

  Kenton Elementary 2014-2015 School Goals

  • We will plan effective and rigorous standards based lessons and monitor the learning around those standards through our COP’s.
  • We will provide opportunities for students to write every day across all content areas.
  • We will develop comprehensive understandings of all components of reading, including how to teach and assess students’ needs of these components in order to provide precise instruction that targets individual students’ gaps.
