Students Record Christmas Cantata

When planning our Christmas program we were once again faced with safety challenges due to COVID-19 virus. Knowing that it would not be safe having all of our students sing together and having all of our families join at the church we decided to attempt another virtual program much like we did for Grandparents Day. We were able to record in the Keene English Church's large open sanctuary, recording one or two classes separately and spaced out on the stage, then we cleaned the stage and area for the next class to come and record. There is still a lot of editing to put our program together. Once we know it is ready we will send out information about the date and time when the KAES Christmas Cantata will be available to watch.

Support KAES as you shop for Christmas on Amazon

KAES is a listed charity for Amazon. All you have to do is shop and set KAES as your supporting charity. You can also now set your Amazon App to support KAES. Just go to settings and select AmazonSmile then choose KAES.

We have listed the lunch menu for the entire month of December. In addition, you are now able to order ahead of time for the entire month. There is a separate lunch order link available for each week of the month. All weekly links are available on the menu at and each individual week will be shared in the newsletter. It is our hope that this will provide an easier way for you to keep track of lunches purchased.

You can edit your order at any time. If you need to make a change to your order, please do it through the confirmation email you receive from your order. This will help us not to double order for your child.
