A New School Year Message from the Head of School
Dear Parents and Students,
In just one week and a few days, school resumes. That sounds so crazy because it seems like yesterday when we finished the 2018-19 school year. We still have much to do on campus before you arrive, but I did want to give you a quick update on some of the new initiatives and improvements on the campus.
Our main summer project, the remodeling of the newly acquired wings (B,D,F), has stalled as the city of Sunnyvale is backlogged in the permit department. Right now, we are on schedule to complete the remodel around Thanksgiving, which means we will move into the new wings over the Christmas break. Please pray for us that there are no more delays in this project.
We have embarked on a total revamp of our art program, which includes a makeover of the art room. Facilities removed walls, installed new sinks and flooring, and applied a fresh coat of paint, completely transforming the art room. We are eager to start a new chapter in our art program, and the upgraded room will be a real blessing to our students.
Josephine Loy, our Director of Annual Fund and Alumni Relations, is busy preparing for the fundraising event and auction to be held on Saturday, October 5. I think you will be excited about the theme for the Knights Annual Fundraiser. Keep an eye out for further communication about this special community event as well as the goals for the Knights Annual Fund.
This year, our theme in Spiritual Life is Rooted, which is based upon Colossians 2:6-7:
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
As a Christ-centered school, we need to be rooted in Him and live a life which reflects the attitudes and actions of the Savior. We want the culture of The King's Academy to be pleasing to Him, which means we have to be intentional about how we cultivate the climate on our campus. Students and staff will be encouraged to place the needs of others above their own. Hopefully, if we can all have the mind of Christ each day, we will treat each other with the same love the Lord Jesus shows to us.
Lastly, this summer, we have worked with diligence to hire teachers to replace those who have moved or retired. I am so excited to introduce these new, well-qualified staff members. Here is a link to short biographies about our new faculty and staff, so you can pray specifically for your student's teachers.
Please also pray for our school community throughout the year!
