KAES Christmas Cantata Dec. 11 at 4:00 pm.

Please join us for the 2021 KAES Christmas Cantata held on Saturday, Dec. 11 at 4:00 pm. This festive program will be held at the Keene (English) Church. Although there will be plenty of seats you will want to come early to get your choice spot. This excellent program, will not only put you in the Christmas spirit, but will also remind you of the true meaning of Christmas. This program will be live streamed on the Keene Church Facebook page.

Middle School Band Concert Wed., Dec. 15 at 5:30 pm

With the rescheduling of music events, it was almost impossible to find a space for our annual band concert. It has been decided to have this short 45 minute concert Wednesday, Dec. 15 at 5:30 pm in the KAES Gym. We realize it may not fit everyone's schedule but is the only time that would work. We will also live stream the concert on our Facebook page. Watch for more information from Ms. Zuly.

Keene Parade of Lights

Special thanks to the Spencer family for planning and leading the KAES float in the Keene Parade of Lights. I think everyone who came out had a great time. There is something special about walking in a parade and being able to recognize everyone by name as they cheer on our kids. It was great fun! We also came home with the trophy for First in Category.

The Be Kind Mail Service

I was introduced to a new mail service at KAES today. A group of mostly 5th graders have created the Be Kind Mail Service delivering letters of encouragement to students and teachers. Kindness is alive and well at KAES.

Abby visits students at KAES

Abby (a certified therapy dog) will be making monthly visits with students and classrooms at KAES. This month Abby visited each classroom and was introduced to students. Students got the opportunity to just watch Abby, shake her paw, pet and even hug Abby. It was amazing to see the faces light up as each interacted with Abby. Abby will be visiting KAES the first or second week of each month.
