From the President’s Pen

Dear KML Family,

May the light of Jesus our Savior continue to shine in your hearts throughout the Christmas season! God’s blessings to you and your family as Christ’s birth once again resonates in our faith-filled hearts. We pray God continues to be with our students as they prepare for exam week next week.

Don’t miss out on this awesome opportunity to share your family, culture, and the joy of Wisconsin winters! Please see for more information, and contact Mrs. Micah Nelson ( ASAP if interested in hosting or with any questions. Gracias!
