Field Trips

This week KAES elementary students went on field trips. Some went to the Fort Worth Zoo and some went to SeaQuest. Both trips focused on animals. It is so nice to see our students getting to go out and experience and explore. Special thank you to all the parents who took time to help chaperone students.

Pre-K shares words of kindness with the student body

This past Wednesday Pre-K students walked around the gym just before chapel, seeking other students to share encouragement cards/gifts. Nothing can turn a grumpy spirit into joy as quickly as a pre-k student when sharing encouraging cards. Thank you!
