From the Principal’s Pen

Dear KML Family,

The hustle and bustle of the Christmas season is upon us both at school and in our personal lives. In this season of gift giving and receiving, I pray you find moments of peace and joy to reflect on the greatest gift – Jesus. We have all heard the phrase “Jesus is the reason for the season,” but in truth, he is the reason for every season. We thank God for the wonderful blessing of this Christian community where we enjoy the opportunity to worship our newborn King daily.

God Bless,

Principal Luehring
