KIK is thankful to SchoolsRule Marin for supporting Bacich and Kent Students!
What is SchoolsRule-Marin?
SchoolsRule-Marin is a coalition that raises funds for all public school students in Marin, and our KSD kids are beneficiaries of that work.
Funds are distributed on a per student basis to Marin public school foundations for programs in Arts, Literacy, Health and Technology.
This past year at Bacich, SchoolsRule monies donated to KIK funded supplies for the Maker Space program. In Maker Space, Bacich students put their creativity to work, learning STEAM skills but also taking risks, failing, and learning from and persevering through those failures to discover new successes.
This year at Kent, SchoolsRule monies donated to KIK paid for the new string program. Because of the generosity of SchoolsRule-Marin, Kent Middle School was able to have its first string class in a generation. Pictured are Basses, Cellos, Violas and Violins purchased and made available to students not able to rent (over 80% of the ensemble). This is the launch of a full and complete music program that now includes three levels of Wind Band, two levels of String Orchestra, two levels of Choir, Jazz Band and Rock Band, not to mention the Karaoke Competition that happens every spring and the teacher rock band The Kent Falconers. Music is alive and thriving at Kent Middle School thanks to your continued support!
At KIK, we are proud to partner with SchoolsRule-Marin and thankful that together, we can continue to support our schools’ work to educate the whole child and ready our Kentfield School kids for the future.
