Lions Weekly: January 24, 2024


A Note From Mr. Sandefur

Lion Family,

I hope that you are refreshed and ready for a new chapter as we resume classes after a week of unexpected winter weather. I want to express my gratitude for your patience and flexibility during this time. The safety of our students is our top priority, and I appreciate the understanding and support you've shown. Now, as we step back onto campus, let's reignite the spirit of learning and community that defines The King's Academy.

Our mission at TKA is to develop servant leaders who will change the world for Christ. The resilience shown by our students, parents, and staff during the recent snow break is a testament to the strength of our community. As we return to our classrooms and activities, let's carry forward the determination and enthusiasm that makes TKA truly special. The impact of our education extends beyond the classroom walls, shaping young minds to become leaders with a heart for service and a commitment to making a positive difference.

As we embark on the journey ahead, let us embrace the opportunities for growth, learning, and community engagement. Your dedication to our mission is vital, and together, we will continue to foster an environment where servant leaders are nurtured and equipped to transform the world for Christ.

In Christ,

Jeremy Sandefur
President/Head of School
