A Note From Mr. Sandefur

Lion Family,

Wow! It is hard to believe that we are only two days away from Christmas break and the end of our first semester! This semester has been full of activity and excitement, as our Lions have thrived being on campus together. I have been personally grateful for our family and community involvement as we have gathered together this semester to better our students here at TKA.

One last piece of business that I would like to communicate to you before the break is our priority re-enrollment window. I know it seems way too early to be looking to the next school year; however, our leadership team is hard at work preparing in order to offer the best possible experiences for our students. You will be receiving an email on December 17th regarding our re-enrollment process, followed by an email on January 2nd that provides the link to complete the process as well as pertinent information regarding the 2022-23 academic year (tuition and fees, calendar, dress code, etc.). I desire that all of our currently enrolled families will continue to partner with us for their child’s educational journey.

As we leave for Christmas break, I want to encourage all of our students, families, faculty, and staff to rest and enjoy this time away. My prayer is that the next two weeks will be a time of reflection, rejuvenation, and rest for our school community. I am looking forward to the new semester as it fast approaches and am praying for you and your family as you celebrate this Christmas season.

In Christ Alone,

Jeremy Sandefur
