Lions Weekly: May 1, 2024


A Note From Mr. Sandefur

Lion Family,

As we approach the culmination of another school year, it's hard to believe that our seniors are preparing for and taking their final exams for the last time, with graduation just around the corner next week! This is a momentous occasion, marking the end of one chapter and the beginning of another for these remarkable young individuals. As we celebrate their achievements and bid farewell to our graduating class, let us also remember to uplift them in prayer as they embark on this new journey in their lives.

Amidst the excitement of graduation, I want to take a moment to express our heartfelt appreciation for the dedicated individuals who are retiring at the end of this year. Their years of service and unwavering commitment to The King's Academy have left an indelible mark on our school community, and we are immensely grateful for their contributions. We wish them all the best in their well-deserved retirement and know that their legacy will continue to inspire us for years to come.

Looking ahead, we are filled with anticipation for the opportunities and challenges that the future holds. As we continue to develop servant leaders who will impact the world for Christ, let us remain steadfast in our commitment to excellence and service. Together, we will continue to nurture a community where students can thrive academically, spiritually, and personally, shaping the future leaders of tomorrow.

In Christ,

Jeremy Sandefur
President/Head of School
