A Note From Mr. Sandefur

Lion Family,

We are officially two weeks from the start of the upcoming academic year, and excitement is building on campus. Our team is working diligently to finalize class lists, schedules, activities, and so much more in preparation for the return of our Lions to campus. We look forward to seeing each of you very soon!

I hope and desire that you will join us this Thursday at 7:00 p.m. at Huskey Football Field on the campus of The King's Academy for our second annual Night of Worship and Prayer. We will gather in a student-led time of worship as we prepare for the upcoming school year. Members of our school community will lead us in a time of guided prayer as we pray for the beginning of our school year. We will conclude our evening with a guided prayer walk through our campus as we prepare our hearts for the upcoming school year.

It is a true honor to partner with you as we seek to develop servant leaders that will change the world for Christ, and I count it a privilege to start the new academic year in prayer and corporate worship with our Lion Family.

In Christ Alone,

Jeremy Sandefur

Sports Medicine Instagram Post

Sports Medicine Student Aid

The King's Academy Sports Medicine Program, under the guidance of Ortho Tennessee, is looking for a few dedicated student aids to help our athletic trainer with some of the day-to-day activities surrounding our sports teams. Interested students would need to have an interest in the healthcare field, be in good academic standing, and display a servant's heart as found in 1 Peter 4:10.

This fun and exciting opportunity will allow students to learn firsthand about sports first aid and CPR. Plus, they will have an opportunity to become part of the TKA Lions athletic culture.

Service learning hours may apply. Students would need to be available for 7th-period athletics and after-school practices, as well as some games.

Back to School Math Camp

Mrs. Sasscer and Mrs. Ailor hosted our Back to School Math Camp for our rising 5th- 7th grade Lions.

They read The Girl Who Never Makes Mistakes, played games, and used manipulatives to understand math concepts. They worked together to solve Mind Benders and other challenging problems. Mrs. Sasscer and Mrs. Ailor also took the students around campus to help the rising 6th graders learn where the middle school teachers are located. While on the tour, they found Mrs. Shannon's classroom and enlisted her help for a few math problems.
