A Note From Mr. Sandefur

Lion Family,

Greetings as we embark on another week of exploration and growth at The King's Academy. I trust that each day has been a stepping stone towards progress and discovery for our students. As we navigate the journey of education together, let us turn our attention to the profound significance of being "Effective Communicators."

In Psalms 19:14, we find the prayer, "Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer." This verse serves as a reminder that our words hold great power and influence, not only in our personal lives but also within our wider community. At The King's Academy, we nurture the development of effective communicators who understand the weight of their words and the impact they can have on those around them.

To be an effective communicator means more than just speaking eloquently; it requires the ability to convey thoughts, ideas, and emotions with empathy and clarity. As we instill this quality in our students, we're nurturing their capacity to create connections, foster understanding, and promote unity. Let's encourage them to embrace the power of thoughtful communication, both in their academic pursuits and in their relationships, as they navigate their journey as servant leaders of Christ.

May our students be guided by the spirit of Psalms 19:14, making their words and thoughts a reflection of the grace and wisdom that come from above. Let us all join in this endeavor to nurture effective communicators who will make a lasting impact on the world for Christ.

In Christ,

Jeremy Sandefur
President/Head of School

Please RSVP on the link below. The registration form will close at noon on Friday, September 1st. This link will also be used for parent permission for student release. The student release will allow a student’s grandparent to check them out of school following the program. On the day of the event, grandparents will sign out your child in the classroom with your child’s teacher, not the elementary office.
