Special thanks to our Grammar School families who attended our Thanksgiving feast. We are very thankful for all of you!

4th & 5th grade visited the landfill located in Abernathy the Friday before Thanksgiving break. They were so impressed with their tour and all that they learned. Environmentalist Darrell Mills, who works for the city of Lubbock, is doing an excellent job of disposing of all of our waste yet not contaminating the environment in the process. They had a great experience!

Students enjoyed a visit from a mobile dairy on Monday afternoon.

Hands-on projects bring learning to life for our students! Fourth grade students created Seigneuries after reading Madeleine Takes Command, and first graders researched different Native American tribes and created dwellings. They also gave oral presentations to their teacher and classmates. We are proud of the amazing work of our students!

First graders went behind the scenes last week at Market Street to learn about all that goes on at a grocery store. They thoroughly enjoyed visiting all of the different departments. The seafood expert was their favorite! They even spent their own money to make a purchase before heading out. They will be expert helpers on their next visit to the grocery store with mom & dad. 

KPA kindergarten visited the corn maze to end off their unit on Fall and Harvest. They found their way through the maze, visited some farm animals, went on a hayride to a pumpkin patch, and everyone picked a pumpkin.

Chemistry learned about combustion with a tiny marshmallow cookout…

After reading The Hound of the Baskervilles, the eighth grade class enjoyed watching the movie together. 

Congratulations to 6th grader Matthew Jenkins! Matthew has been playing competitive chess for about 6 months. He recently joined the US Chess Federation and  is working toward his official US rating. Last weekend he scored first place overall in a Plainview tournament. This weekend he will compete in his third Check With Tech tournament, here in Lubbock, along with other members of the Lubbock Homeschool Chess Club. Way to go, Matthew!

Spring registration:

It’s time for Spring 2019 registration! In an effort to simplify this process, we have created a new system where existing KPA families need not do anything for spring enrollment.   Upon completion of the required Community Update meeting, families will be billed through FACTS $110/student during the second week of November for Spring 2019 registration.  If your student is NOT returning next semester OR his/her schedule needs to change in any way, please turn in an add/drop form by November 1.

Just to reiterate, please make note of the following items pertaining to your student’s enrollment:

  1. Early enrollment ($110/student) began October 22nd and ends November 18th.
  2. Late enrollment ($160/student) begins November 19th and ends December 1st, which is the last day of enrollment for Spring 2019.
  3. Enrollment for NEW families begins November 5th and ends December 1st.
  4. If you HAVE fulfilled your requirement of attending the Community Update and are eligible for Spring 2019 enrollment, your student(s) will be automatically enrolled in the same classes for next semester.  You do not need to do anything UNLESS something needs to change with his/her schedule, in which case you will need to fill out an add/drop form and turn in to the front desk or scan and email to info@kingdomprep.org.
  5. Any NEW student not already enrolled in KPA classes should go to our website (www.kingdomprep.org, admissions tab) and fill out the online application no later than December 1st for Spring 2019 considerations.

Tuesday night, Oct 9th, the KPA High School volleyball teams hosted two home games. Thank you to Scarlett Gonzales for a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem.
JV fell to the varsity team at Compass Academy (Odessa) in two sets.  (14-25 and 15-25)
Our KPA Varsity volleyball team won their first set ever against Plains JV,  but ultimately lost the match 1-3. (16-25, 25-20, 22-25, 13-25)

Thank you to all our rowdy spectators, especially the High School boys!
