Faculty & Staff News

Mr. Jim Ott has declined the call he received to teach high level math and science for grades 9-12 at Divine Savior Academy – Sienna in Missouri City, TX, and will continue his service at KML.

Let’s Grow Together Update

God continues to bless us this year through you. We have received nearly $6 million in gifts and pledges toward our Let’s Grow Together campaign. Over 1600 people have participated in the campaign. Whether we have your prayers, your first gift, your best gift, or your faithful support, we thank you! It is our prayer that our entire KML family will pray, support, and share the mission of our Let’s Grow Together campaign.

Through your prayers and generous support, the new expanded facility will serve more students, create space to add new programs to increase student involvement, expand overcrowded spaces for all our students, and provide opportunities for our growing Jr. Charger program of more than 350 students.
