KPS - A Message from the Superintendent: Dr. Scott Palczewski

Several weeks ago, I was honored to be invited to visit the Van Andel Research Institute by the father of one of our students. He and his wife chose Kentwood because they recognized the importance of living in a 21st century global community with a school system that emphasizes creative problem solving and innovation!

As I observed the cancer research being done at Van Andel, ironically, I was struck by the importance of what we do rather than the valuable work they do. The kids in Kentwood classrooms today are the researchers and leaders of tomorrow. They will solve problems yet to be understood. They will take jobs yet to be created. They will receive awards from music and films yet to be heard and seen. Inspire one child in 2010-11, and generations of children will be impacted.
In the year ahead, three attributes of the Kentwood Public Schools will be highlighted:

1. A 21st century global community where relationships matter.
