The King’s Academy Students Take a Day to Honor Grandparents

WEST PALM BEACH – November 11th, 2013 – On November 8th, 2013, The King’s Academy welcomed over 700 grandparents to its West Palm Beach Campus.  Grandparents were treated to a special program performed by talented TKA students from Pre-K through 12th grade, continental breakfast, classroom visits, and commemorative photos with their grandchildren.

Mr. Heath Nivens, Elementary Principal, explained the reason that King’s sets aside a special day to honor our grandparents every year, “Grandparents play such a tremendous role in the overall development of children. The memories they create with their grandchildren last a lifetime. Their influence and reinforcement of the values and morals we want our students to possess is invaluable. It is such a blessing to interact with our students’ Grandparents and have them as guests on our campus.”

The King’s Academy high school Student Ambassadors and Prefects hosted and assisted grandparents throughout the event.  At the conclusion of the morning, many grandparents took the opportunity of taking their grandchildren for a special lunch, capping a morning of great memories at The King’s Academy.

The King’s Academy is a nationally recognized private Christian school serving approximately 1,200 students from preschool through twelfth grade and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the Association of Christian Schools International, and the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools. The King’s Academy serves students and their families across Palm Beach and Hendry Counties at its main campus at Belvedere Road and Sansbury’s Way in West Palm Beach, its Clewiston campus on Caribbean Avenue, and its satellite preschool campuses in Greenacres, Palm Beach Gardens, and Royal Palm Beach.
