A Note From Mrs. Braaksma & Mr. Rogers:

Dear KGA Community,

Thank you for your support of our annual state testing for 3rd through 6th grades. A state auditor was on campus this year and it's believed that we passed with flying colors. Please congratulate our students and staff on a job well done!

Also, a huge THANK YOU to our incredible Art Masterpiece committee for a spectacular evening that celebrated the many facets of art appreciation. From student creations, music, live artist demonstrations, singing, t-shirt design, dancing, and so much more!

New to Maker Faire? Here's why we love it!

First, save the date of May 19, 2023 from 11:00am to 1:30pm! You won't want to miss this incredible event! It's a favorite.

Since May of 2014, KGA has hosted an annual Maker Faire on campus. It's often referred to as The Greatest Show & Tell on Earth. Maker Faire is a celebration of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness. It’s a place to show what we’ve made and to share what we’ve learned with others.

If you'd like to take a peek at last year's Maker Faire, check out the video below.
