The King’s Academy welcomed more than 700 grandparents to its West Palm Beach campus on Friday, Nov. 8 for Grandparents Day.
Grandparents were treated to a special program performed by talented TKA students from pre-K through 12th grade, a continental breakfast, classroom visits and commemorative photos with their grandchildren.
TKA Elementary Principal Heath Nivens explained the reason that the school sets aside a special day to honor grandparents every year.
“Grandparents play such a tremendous role in the overall development of children,” she said. “The memories they create with their grandchildren last a lifetime. Their influence and reinforcement of the values and morals we want our students to possess is invaluable. It is such a blessing to interact with our students’ grandparents and have them as guests on our campus.”
The King’s Academy high school student ambassadors and prefects hosted and assisted grandparents throughout the event. At the conclusion of the morning, many grandparents took the opportunity to take their grandchildren for a special lunch, capping a morning of great memories at TKA
The King’s Academy is a nationally recognized private Christian school serving approximately 1,200 students from preschool through 12th grade. More information about TKA is available online at www.tka.net.
