Have you taken the survey? Time is running out!

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 in the future. We want to hear your voice.

KAES will participate in the Keene Church service at SWAU gymnasium on March 6

We want to invite everyone to join us at the SWAU gymnasium at 12:00 pm for the Summit Church service. Keene Church is meeting in the gymnasium while the church is being remodeled. KAES students will be participating in the service. It will be fun.

KAES Students Will Be Taking A Stand For Jesus

March 6 will be a very special Sabbath. It will be a little different atmosphere than we normally have for baptism. Jumping in for Jesus will provide opportunity for friends and families to be up close to the baptistry for a more personal connection with those taking this stand.

Parents or students can contact Pastor Travis at (979) 492-6203 to learn more and prepare for this special day.

We collected over 2500 books for our friends at Pohnpei SDA School.

You never know how programs like this book drive will go, especially when you’re out a whole week to bad weather, but our KAES families never cease to amaze me. I want to thank everyone who supported our book drive this month. I believe all of these books will make a huge impact.

I also want to congratulate the 3rd and 7th grades for bringing highest percentage of books per student and winning the challenge. Monday will include a pizza party as a reward for your efforts. Go Eagles!!

We have listed the lunch menu for the entire month of March. 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.
