Red Ribbon Week Fun

This week has been so much fun as we've celebrated Red Ribbon Week and making the right decision to not use drugs. We started the week in red and continued with crazy hair, boot wearing, going back in time and thinking about the future. Thank you to City Police Chief Hunt for visiting our school on Wednesday and talking with our students about drugs. We hope you remember all that you've learned and the fun you've had being DRUG FREE! Stay safe and healthy.

KAES students make the decision to follow Jesus and are baptized together.

Congratulations to Alexander, Christopher and Zury Rivas. They made the decision to follow Jesus and be baptized. Last Saturday among many family and friends, these brothers and sisters were baptized by Pastor Ibuado, associate pastor of the Keene Spanish Church. We are so proud of you! Continue to rely on Jesus!
