We’re back with our Let’s Talk video series! It’s a new year, and we’re expanding the scope of our Let’s Talk videos to have touch points for ALL of our KPA families, not just our upper school families! Parents have been blessed with a great responsibility and unique place of influence in the lives of their children to journey with them in the process of discipleship, so we want to provide as many resources and as much encouragement as possible to our school’s families in that journey! You can find these weekly videos on our KPA YouTube channel, as well as on our KPA Parents Facebook group.

We’ll be releasing a new video each week, so stay tuned! Thanks for watching!
