Special editions are sent when there is important news to share. There is a relationship between learning Biblical doctrine categorically and succeeding academically, as the discipline required for categorical study prepares a person for academic success. There are two ways you can go into academic life. You can study every day, or you can cram for examinations. Many chose the cram method! Every time they experience pressure, they face a final exam. What’s that doctrine I need? Where’s that verse? What’s that faith-rest business? If you start to cram when you have pressure, forget it! On the other hand, if you learn a little doctrine every day, when you face pressure situations (final exams), you’ll pass with flying colors and you’ll glorify the Lord!” (R.B.Thieme, Jr. from a study of the book of Daniel.) At King’s, our students study their Bibles everyday and are at the same time academically successful. encourage you all to be sure you are spending time with the Lord each and every day.

In 2014, the Resale is going strong and continues to be a huge benefit to our families and our school. Gently used uniforms are purchased from families and are resold for profit. We also have a number of families who donate their uniforms to the sale. There is a great amount of time that goes into running the resale from processing the clothes to sorting, hanging, set-up, take-down, and then actually running the sales 4-5 times each year. We would like to take this 7th -12th Grade Parent-Teacher Conferences November 13th & November 14th time to thank all of the volunteers who have given their time and energy over the years to make the Uniform Resale successful. Because of the Resale’s success, we have been able to bless our school families. The Resale funds have also been used to bless our teachers by purchasing items for their classrooms. Some of the items purchased are: ✴ Electric Pencil Sharpeners ✴ Books for Classroom Libraries ✴ Projectors ✴ Accucut Die Pieces ✴ TV Monitors for Elementary Classrooms ✴ Bibles for Preschool ✴ Headphones for Music Department ✴ Physical Education Equipment ✴ Wireless Headphone Set for Kindergarten Thank you to our families who participate in the Resale and to our volunteers who have given so much of their time to make the Resale such a success!

The process is simple & The King’s Christian School Education Experience Program This past June, The King’s Christian School had an Education Experience trip to Disney World. It was offered to all Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors. It was five short days, which we spent to the fullest, learning everything you could think of and having a lot of fun while doing it. While we were in Disney, we had classes that we took every morning before we went exploring in all of the different parks in the afternoon. The first class was a Marine Science course in Epcot. We learned all about ocean creatures and their habitats diet. Also, we learned about different careers in the Marine Science field. The next class was a leadership course in Epcot. That class taught us all about how to become and remain a leader in anything that we do. Our guide had us do an exercise where we were split into groups to come up with a new logo for a hot dog company. Each group had a boss, and each boss was given certain restrictions on what they could and could not do. That made it very difficult to communicate, and communication is key to working with a group of people. The third class was a technology course at Epcot. We learned all about the technology of Disney and how we use technology everyday and take it for granted. We got to experience a lot of the technology-based rides. For example, we got to go on Test Track and ride around in the Epcot globe, because the globe is an actual ride that tells us how technology came to be in the world and how we are a part of it. The last class was at Sea World. It was a hands-on marine biology class. We got to pet a penguin and explore backstage in Sea World. It was amazing! We got to see all the baby manatees and dolphins and see how the tanks that hold all those fish, dolphins, and Shamu work. Another big part of the trip was a tour of Southeastern University. We had an opportunity to take a tour of the campus, learn about the degrees that they offer, and talk to an admissions advisor.

Dear Sue, I wanted to take a minute and tell you what you already know, and what you told us would happen if we enrolled our son at Kings. He is thriving at Kings. For the first time in his academic career, he is thriving. These kids in his class are the nicest kids. He has been bullied for the past three years in school. He didn’t have a friend in the world when he walked through the door on the first day. That’s when a boy grabbed onto him and made sure he felt comfortable in the school. He even ate lunch with our son (who normally ate alone.) His biggest fear of not fitting in has not been realized. I wanted to let you know that this has been a very emotional two weeks for us. To know that I am coming home from work without the heaviness of what he was experiencing throughout the day is a blessing from God. To see his excitement and hear him talk about the good things that happen in his day is overwhelming. He feels free to be a Christian every day of the week and not just when he is youth or church. He is not being ostracized for his faith or for being different. Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to catch the school soccer game. My boys have played soccer since they were four years old. I have never seen kids play the way they my son put his foot on the ball he was encouraged by someone on that team. I could tell he is starting to make some friends at Kings. And that is an amazing thing! He has been rejected by his peers for so long that he just doesn’t have anyone. As a mom, who knows how amazing her son is, this always broke my heart. But this kid is becoming the kid I always knew he could be at Kings. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
