Names of God

This week Pastor Mary Ellen Winegardner shared with us about El Roi = the God who sees me. This starts our worship series for our year about the names of God. We have plenty of room and we would love to have you join us each week and learn a new name of God. God sees all 7.7 billion of us and knows each one of us by name.

7th and 8th Grade Retreat

Each year KAES takes our 7th and 8th graders on a leadership retreat. The goal is to support them into becoming leaders for Jesus on our campus. They work through challenge activities that help them realize that they are stronger together and that with Christ all things are possible. They also have a ton of fun playing, eating and laughing together. Thank you to all the sponsors who gave of their time and sleep this weekend to make this great event happen.
If you look at the calendar you will notice we have P/T Conferences scheduled for Monday, October 28. We also found out this week that the Friday of the same week we will not have school because of a teacher inservice held by the conference. So we are asking you if you would prefer to group the two days of no school together or to leave it the same. The current schedule has Monday and Friday with no school. The option we feel may better serve you is to move the Monday date and have Thursday and Friday with no school. Please share your opinion in the attached survey.

Picture Day

This year School Picture Day is Wednesday, September 11. Pictures will begin immediately following chapel. Students are to wear their chapel uniform. Classroom pictures will also be taken.
