Thank You Kentridge Community!
Thanks to the hard work of some Executive Board and Booster Club members the December 7th Electronics Recycling event. People from the local community started lining up before we were setup at 10:00 a.m. and continued all throughout the day until we closed at 3:00 p.m. Over 10 tons of old TV's, refrigerators, computers, water tanks and many other electronic or metal objects were put into trucks and shipped away to recycling centers.
A special thank you to 1 Green Planet for running the event. They paid for mailing flyers and all the work done at the event. Donations of almost $2400 will go directly to supporting Kentridge H.S. activities and athletics.
Due to the tremendous response to the event, we plan to have another free recycling event in the spring.
Other fundraising activities are in the works. We appreciate any help we can get.

Construction of a new storage building for football, soccer and track is scheduled to begin in Spring 2014. The new track and football field will begin construction in the Summer of 2014.
