KCA Saint Weekly

A weekly posting of news and events for KCA

A few notes from Mrs. Eichman~

Welcome back to school and Happy New Year to everyone! I do hope that the break was full of fun and rest.

As we head back into schedules and learning, please be mindful of adequate rest each night, hydration, and keeping sick germs at home where they belong! A student needs to be fever free, without medicine, a full 24 hours before sending them back to school. Following this guideline from the Center for Disease Control will ensure the student and his/her classmates stay healthy.

Thank you to parents and staff who spent time taking the 2016-2017 Calendar Survey. The information will be used to help staff members and I look at the 2016-2017 school year calendar. One question I was asked, "Are we going to have to go to school on Friday next year?" The answer is, not next year, but Fridays may be used as a possible make-up day for snow days. In any case, a decision of adding a day to our school week will be one that comes with much care and input from all parents, staff, and school board.

Last year, for 2015, our school had the privilege of having a 'Year of Prayer'. This year for 2016, a 'Year of Renewal & Restoration' is on the horizon. A letter with more details of this year will be coming out next week.

It is truly a privilege to serve the families at KCA. If you should ever have a need or concern, please do not hesitate to contact me. You can reach me at school or on my cell phone: 573-310-4110.

For the Kingdom & His Glory,

Mrs. Eichman

Items to Keep You in the Know

  • Scrip order dates for this semester will be: 1/11, 2/8, 3/14, 4/11 and possibly one more date before our summer break. Orders need to be in the office by 4pm on the dates listed above.
  • God's Creation wall calendars for 2016 are still being requested, but we must have an order of 25 before we can place an order. If you are still interested in purchasing a calendar, please contact the office.
  • End of School pick-up is taking a bit longer because we do not have any sport activities at this time. Please be patient as we work through having ALL students being picked up at the same time. The staff does an amazing job with this and we always want to have drivers slow down for the safety of all.
  • A flyer for our Celebration Banquet was sent home this week. Please check to see that you have received it.
  • 2016-2017 Re-enrollment dates are February 16th (form due) and March 15th (enrollment fee due). An informational letter about FACTS Grant and Aid is being sent home today and also being sent via email.
