Opening DayThere’s no better way to kick off the school year than with enthusiastic cheers as you pull into campus.

seniors smiling and dressed in costume to welcome all underclassmen to school for opening day

This beloved Kent Denver tradition ensures every first day of school starts with a smile. A few days before school starts, the senior class chooses a theme for the school year, and then on Opening Day, they dress in costumes matching the theme and welcome their fellow classmates to campus with cheers, signs and applause. The theme for the 2023-24 school year was Going for Gold.

...imagine rounding the corner to find the elders of your new tribe (dressed perfectly for the occasion), waving their arms with joy and cheering you on as though you'd been a part of the group all along. Imagine how relieved, how welcomed, how safe and legitimate and loved you would feel. Dave KDS parent
