Parent participation is a crucial element in why TKA has a reputation as a family-friendly, wholesome environment. Active, passionate parents join us on our service trips and class field trips to destinations in the U.S. and abroad, or they support these trips back home by helping with fundraising or logistical planning. Parents also help out at school-wide events such as the Back to School BBQ, Carnival, Open Houses and Graduation. Additionally, parents often bring siblings and extended family to help with events or service opportunities on campus.
And, of course, we always depend on parent prayers for the safety of our students and in support of our goal to bring each student into a closer relationship with Christ. The relationships among parents create a caring community, as parents help each other with the parenting process and weave a web of support for our students
Parents can also find information about volunteer opportunities in the weekly email bulletin. If you would like to discuss how you might effectively contribute your skills and talents to The King's Academy, please contact PR Event/Parent Coordinators: Kara Loiacono at (650) 941-2528 or Rocelia Kmak at (408) 246-8432.

Moms In Prayer International
We are privileged to meet 8:15-9:00 each week on Thursdays in the TKA Boardroom to release God's power on our children and school through prayer. We believe that prayer makes all the difference for our students, staff and the direction and protection of our school. Lamentations 2:19 exhorts us to "Pour out your hearts like water before the face of the Lord, lift up your hands toward Him for the lives of your children". Moms, join us to pray for our students, staff and school and receive support and encouragement from other mothers who will share your burdens. For more information about the TKA group, contact parent, Linda Tatsuno at firstname.lastname@example.org or (408) 251-0523.
