The King’s Academy’s celebrated homecoming during the week of Oct. 13. This year’s theme was “A Blast from the Past,” with each grade picking a different decade to represent. The week was packed with school spirit, fun and healthy competition.
Each day of the week, TKA students and staff dressed according to a theme, including: Mix-n-Match Day, Twin Day, Theme Day, Class Color Day and Spirit Day. The festivities also included powder puff football, a class skit competition and a homecoming football game in which TKA defeated the Benjamin School 49-13, and the 2014 homecoming king and queen were crowned.
Most importantly, a “Change for Change” drive raised more than $5,800 to support Access-Life Ministry. Access-Life develops and executes programs and events for people and families in the local area living with disabilities. Through their expo events, they help connect them to churches, organizations, resources and people within their community. “We are so pleased to be able to partner with Access-Life,” said Michelle Kolar, director of student life. “This fundraiser allowed our students to truly appreciate what it means to give back to our community.”
TKA is a nationally recognized private Christian school. For more info., visit www.tka.net.
