This month the school enjoyed chapel from the 4th grade class.
The chapel service was full of a whole bunch of meaningful
messages. Like how it is bad to have the poochy lip disease. We
also learned about David, and King Ahab. Mrs. Dillon did a
wonderful job with the King Ahab story about how we shouldn't
cry about everything. The fourth graders led the school in the
poochy lip song. And Pastor Dillon did a wonderful job on
describing David’s life and his troubles in Psalms. And how he
dealt with Saul. His stories helped to connect how our attitude
can change our outlook on our circumstances. !

Behind the Gym!!!

Physical Education
looks different at each
school. Coach
Thompson, leads our
students Physical
Education classes for
the K-8th grade
students. One of
Coach Thompson’s
goal for P.E. is
showing her students
a wide range of activities that are just fun, and an active way to be
healthy. She said that, ‘’KCA has many athletically inclined
students that get their exercise on a regular basis from participating
in sports.’’ She went on to say that “in today’s world, it is vital to
find certain ways to be active in daily routines and to make healthy
choices. By teaching activities such as; juggling, 4 square, or tag
games, it gives the students more options than just ‘running’ to stay
active.”
The younger students have been working on skills that will prepare
them for some sports. While the older students are “learning how
to play various team related sports.” They are learning individual
and dual sports, for example: volleyball, football, juggling, and
badminton. All students have been learning about muscles, bones,
and healthy heart habits this year.
!
Coach Thompson says, “she grew up
hunting, fishing, swimming, biking, and
playing volleyball and soccer.” She
enjoys being part of the fun activities. “As
much as I love what I do, I love God
more and I have a desire for those I’m
surrounded with to come to know Him.”
We are truly blessed to have Coach
Thompson as part of our KCA family.

The Lady with the Sparkle-dazzle…

Mrs. Safire tells us she, “is pretty much an open book and
what you see is pretty much what you get.” This may be

true, but we see a lady that sparkles. Mrs. Safire, came to
KCA just over ten years ago after the suggestion from her
cousin. Mrs Safire says, “I really wasn’t looking for a job,
but once I came here, I was so impressed.”
Needless to say,
Mrs. Safire has been here ever since. She currently teaches
6th grade Bible, 6th-10th grade Language, and 7th-10th
Literature.
Mrs. Safire was inspired to become a teacher by two special

people, her mother and her high school English teacher.
Mrs. Safire wanted to be just like her mother; even though
her mother wasn’t a teacher, she was the best teacher
figure in her daughters’ life. Mrs. Safire also modeled after
the teacher she says was, “the most amazing person a
teenager could have as a teacher.” Her teacher was,
“smart, funny, and she made the kids in her class want to
learn.”
We like to think that Mrs. Safire is now that teacher for our
KCA teenagers, encouraging them each day with her
Drama Science Fiction Comedy laughter, compassion and tender heart. She may be quick
to uphold respect and
quality work, but she is
also quick to give the
complements that are
remembered long after
the day. She is the
lady with eyes that
sparkle… it could be
mischief, or it could
be just her dazzling
personality.

This is Mrs. Campbell’s first year as a full time teacher at KCA.
She was a substitute the last two years and got to know a lot of
the students. Mrs. Campbell’s favorite thing about teaching 5th
grade at KCA is that she is able, “to incorporate God’s Word and
His principles into each and every subject.” She also loves,
“challenging each student to achieve his/her very best both
academically and spiritually.” When asked the characteristics
she would use to describe her 5th grade class, she listed: “They
are excited about learning; they love to participate; and they are
independent thinkers; they have a great sense of humor; they get
excited about new ideas; they are full of energy; they are
compassionate and thoughtful towards others, they are great
leaders; they are optimistic; and they are very helpful.” As far as
character development, Mrs. Campbell hopes to instill in all her
students, “a
love for
Christ,
compassion
for others,
and an
ability to
excel in all
academic
subjects.”
She also
hopes to,
“help each
student develop a desire to know and obey God’s will.” The last
question I asked her was, “What makes a KCA classroom
different from public school classrooms?” She replied, “being able
to teach the Bible as God's inspired Word and incorporate it into
each subject during the day, and using it to teach valuable life
lessons throughout the day. The teachers and staff here are
exceptional, supportive and full of God’s love and grace. I love
working with everyone here - students and staff.”

Open Gym Times:
KCA Sports
by Knight Writer… Zeke Barnett
!
We are happy to say that the KCA track season is just around
the corner! We are also glad to say that Mrs. Melanie Pezold
is once again coaching. KCA will have two track teams this
year, middle school 7-8th grade and the high school team.
Track is the only sport at KCA that both boys and girls are a
part of the same team. It is a great way to involve the true
school spirit.
Some Track Term Distances:
400 - One lap around the track (one quarter of a mile).
1600 - 4 laps around the track (one mile).

Spring Break…. Fun
by Knight Writer…. Hunter Middleton!
So spring break is coming this March 19, and it might be challenging to think of some things
to do during spring break. So I came up with a list of things that you can do during spring
break. Go have some fun.
1. Baseball
Starting in March, America’s great pastime begins another season. Great weather.
Smiling faces. Hot dogs. What could be more fun? Start to sign up for your league team, and
get out there and practice with your family!
2. Backyard fun
Traveling is not the only way to have a great time with the family on vacation. Turn your
backyard into your very own resort destination. You can play all types of different sports
such as ultimate frisbee or volleyball. Think outside the box and come up with your own unique
backyard fun.
3. Volunteer
Volunteer this Spring break is a perfect time to give of yourself. Spring is the time of new life
and renewed hope. Your family can join in giving nature a hand. Clean up litter in your
neighborhood. Pick up trash around ponds and creeks that harm wildlife. Help an elderly
neighbor with yard work or house maintenance. Let your family choose the cause and then be
the solution.
4. The outdoor project
Yard work on vacation? Sure! It’s the perfect time to add beauty and function to your home.
Take this time to add that long talked about gazebo or fountain. Maybe your wife wants a
garden. Get the whole family involved with the vision and planning. Then get out there with
your family and make it happen!
!
5. The big Rig
How many times have you been on the road with your family and you all see that big motor
home next to you and wish you were in it? Make it happen. RV dealers rent those big rigs for
surprisingly reasonable fees. There are special resorts all over the country that cater to big
motor homes. Research an itinerary that works for your family and get out on the road!

Weird News on St. Patricks Day
by Knight Writer…. McKenna Carnahan!
!
Have you ever wondered what makes St. Patricks Day a holiday? Well I am here
to tell you just that, and you might be very surprised with what you find out. I
was!
St. Patrick's Day originated in Ireland on March 17, 461. It was created
to honor Ireland’s saint, Patrick. St. Patrick was actually not of Irish descent,
he was from Great Britain. When he was a teenager, he was kidnapped and taken
to Ireland as a slave. While in Ireland, he escaped from his captors and fled to
France. There he sought refuge in a monastery, and found Christianity. Later in
his life Patrick went back to Ireland as a missionary and became a bishop.
Decades after his death, he became the patron saint of Ireland. The date of his
death, March 17th became the holy day of obligations for all catholics in Ireland.
When the Irish immigrated to America, they brought along their holiday
and jazzed it up a bit. The weird story goes that the first American St. Patrick’s
Day parade was held in New York City in the 1760’s while some Irish men were
serving in the British army. Even though St. Patrick’s Day has never been
recognized as an actual holiday in America, the celebrations are a way for the
Irish to remember where they came from even after they moved to a new country.
It’s weird to think about how different St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated
today than it was hundreds of years ago, but even now the holiday still reminds
the Irish of their Irish roots.

Student Movie Review
by Knight Writer… Lauren Davis
!
A movie I saw in theaters is, Night at the Museum Secret of the Tomb it is the third trilogy of the Night
at the Museum. This movie is about a guy named Larry and he is a night guard who works at the
National History Museum. He realizes that something weird is going on with his exhibit friends so
he spans the globe and meets new characters while embarking on a quest to save the magic of the
tablet before it is gone forever. What I liked about this movie is it had a lot of heart and it was really
funny. I give this movie 3 popcorn cups. This movie may be appropriate for your younger viewers it
is rated PG.

A movie I saw on DVD is Captain America: The First Avenger. This movie is about a man named
Steve Rodgers who got rejected from the military and transformed into a super soldier called Captain
America. Being Captain America comes with a huge price as he attempts to take down evil. What I
liked about this movie is it had a lot of action in it and some romance. The lesson in this movie is
never give up on what you want to do in life. I give this movie 2 popcorn cups. It is rated PG 13.
