KAES gets four legged visitor.

Kindergarten and 4th grade students got a special surprise when Layla, a husky pup, visited their classrooms. This was a culminating event celebrating books they have been reading about huskies.

Book Drive for our sister school, Pohnpei SDA School

Do you have some nice books that your children have outgrown and are not using? If you do, we encourage you to donate them to our sister school in Pohnpei Micronesia. Starting February each classroom will be collecting books for us to send in March.

We are challenging each classroom to collect as many good quality books as possible. To encourage participation, the classroom in each building with the highest ratio of books donated will receive a pizza party.

At the end of February we will box up the donated books and send them to Pohnpei.

SOLD OUT: Elementary Classrooms Valentines Fundraiser

Thank you to everyone who help support our KAES elementary classroom Valentines basket fundraiser. We have sold out on all our baskets and will not be accepting anymore orders.

KAES Parent Survey

Each year, in February, KAES participates in a parent survey that is provided by the conference. This is your chance to tell us how we are doing. This blind survey will give us insight on what you like about KAES and what you would like to see. We want to hear your voice. Look for your survey email Feb. 15.

We have listed the lunch menu for the entire month of February. Remember 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.
