Christmas Book Walk 2019

Yesterday the elementary grades went on a book walk between classrooms. Students got to hear teachers’ favorite Christmas stories read to them and then had fun crafts related to those stories. This event is always so much fun and puts us in the Christmas spirit.

Gymnasium Campaign Update

It is an exciting time to be at KAES. Wednesday we accepted delivery of the metal structure of our gymnasium. You can see it in the far west parking lot just in front of where our new gymnasium will be erected. This is so exciting. We have also resubmitted our building plans to the city and hope to receive our building permit very soon. We still have a lot of work to do to complete our project but it will happen with all of us working together.

Band Concert 2019

It was our last band concert for 2019, but we did it with a bang. It was so awesome to hear all the talent and skills that our students have worked hard to polish. If you missed it on Sunday or just want to relive the experience check out the video.

2nd Quarter Grades To Be Sent Out Via Email

We have been working to improve systems so that grades can be sent out to parents or guardians through email. We are trying to find better ways of getting this information to you. Hard copies can always be available just like they have been in the past. Copies will just not be carried home via the student but sent to you instead. We hope to send out grades just after Christmas so be looking for them. Merry Christmas!
If you ordered a new sweatshirt it is ready for pickup in the school office. We did order a few extra if you would like to still purchase one.

The New KAES Sweatshirts are Here!

Have you been seeing a lot of Amazon Smile vans driving around town this Christmas? Each delivery could be helping KAES. All of your purchases through Amazon can help support KAES, but you have to select KAES as your charity of choice and then make sure you use for all your Amazon purchases. Just click on the title above or type in in your URL and select Keene Adventist Elementary School. You will use the same account you already have. The only thing that is different is the way you enter Amazon.
