A Note From Mr. Sandefur

Lion Families,

I want to personally thank all who were involved in our PTF’s Festival at the Academy this past week. The support was overwhelming, with every dollar going back to our classrooms and student organizations. Many thanks are owed to the dedicated team of volunteers who worked so diligently to provide an incredible event for our school community.

This weekend our PTF is hosting Breakaway for our middle school students. I would like to encourage all 6th-8th students, and their families, to support this event by participating. We are grateful for this new opportunity for our middle school students to enjoy a time of relationship building and fellowship.

Finally, please join me in cheering for our football team and Allie Daft (cross-country) as they compete in TSSAA playoffs this Friday. It is an exciting time to be a TKA Lion!

In Christ Alone,

Jeremy Sandefur
President/Head of School

Brooms and Vacuum Donations

At the beginning of the year, PTF asked our teachers what was a way they could help. Our middle school faculty and staff requested new brooms and a vacuum to help keep our facilities spick and span.

PTF provided the math hall with a vacuum and the other middle school teachers with brooms.

Visitor Policy

TKA Visitor Policy

In order to help maintain a safe and instructionally based learning environment for our students, all visitors for middle and high school must enter through the front door of the Anderson Building and sign in in the middle/high school office in order to receive a visitor's pass. All visitors for elementary must enter the front door of the Ogle Building in order to receive a visitor's pass. This pass should be visible at all times so that TKA faculty and staff know that you have checked in at the office.

Our doors are open to visitors, but please call ahead of time to schedule conferences with your child’s teachers. This will prevent interruptions to instruction and the loss of the valuable learning time of our students. Adults will not be allowed to wander the halls of the building or hold conferences with teachers during instructional times.

TKA family lunch visitors should follow the above procedure. Lunch tickets are $5 each.

Students who are not enrolled at TKA are not permitted to visit TKA students during the school day, which includes lunch.

This policy has been developed in order to help maintain a safe and instruction focused environment at school each day. Any visitor who does not meet these expectations may be asked to leave school grounds.
