KCA Hosts Birthday Party and Talent Show!
Konocti Christian Academy will celebrate its 5th Anniversary with a birthday party and Talent Show on March 19th. The birthday party will start at 5 p.m. at the Main Stage area of the Lake County Fairground. The Talent Show will follow at 7 p.m. at the Little Theater.
All Lake County students are invited to bring their best comedy acts, music and dance numbers, drama, and other types of creative entertainment for what is expected to be the biggest audience in KCA’s history. To participate, interested student performers should contact KCA by March 10th.
Many educators agree that performing in front of a live audience is an excellent way for students to develop confidence and leadership skills. As public school programs are being squeezed, KCA would like to offer this opportunity for all students in the Lake County community to develop skills sets and showcase achievements in a fun and friendly atmosphere.
KCA hosts a talent show each year, but this is the first time the venue has been open to the public. Becky Madison, KCA’s principal and talent show coordinator, is excited about opening the show to the Lake County community. "KCA offers the most wonderful partnership between the faculty and staff and the families we serve. Our students receive a rigorous academic program and quality interaction with their teachers. We strive to provide a safe and loving environment in which each student will achieve scholastically and grow personally."
KCA opened its doors 5 years ago as the dream of a core group of parents determined to offer rigorous academic training in a Christian environment. Since that time, the school has grown to over 50 students including Independent Study Program participants and has relocated to the fairgrounds in Central Lakeport .
The March 19th event will kick off with a birthday party celebrating KCA’s 5th anniversary complete with door prizes, goody bags, cake and ice cream, and a barbecue hot dog dinner. Parents, community members, and the public are invited to look at KCA’s classroom facilities, meet with students and staff, and become familiar with the school. KCA's first graduating class of outstanding scholars have been invited to share their remarkable academic achievements and the role that KCA played in their scholastic success.
Along with the festivities, KCA’s birthday party will kickoff a new scholarship fund so that KCA can become affordable to more Lake County students. The new fund will provide financial assistance to families who prefer a private, Christian based academic experience for their children but who cannot afford the tuition. Currently, KCA parents can participate in a Tuition Credit Program which provides an opportunity for tuition breaks through volunteer hours. For example, when parents volunteer to help out with an essential school function, they are given a discount off that month’s school tuition.
As new members of the Lake County Chamber of Commerce, KCA’s official ribbon cutting ceremony will also take place at the party. Bill Stone, new Chamber Board Member and Chair of the Chamber’s membership committee, is happy to welcome the school. The membership committee is a newly formed group whose mission is to help new Chamber members get the most from their memberships. Bill and his committee will be working with KCA over the coming months to apprise them of the many benefits the Chamber can offer businesses and organizations that join.
The official ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled to take place at 6 p.m. during the party. All local business people and especially Lake County Chamber of Commerce members are encouraged to participate.
KCA Vice President Michelle Scully looks forward to the birthday celebration. “All of us involved with KCA through the past five years have felt abundantly blessed through our involvement with the school . We are very proud and honored to have such amazing staff, students, parents, and families affiliated with and invested in KCA. We also greatly appreciate our relationship with and the vision of the Lake County Fair Board who partnered with us in developing the current site.
"Each new year provides additional opportunities for growth and we are very excited about the future. We envision more community outreach opportunities for the students and hope to include foreign language as a standard curriculum in the near future. Our core philosophy remains the same today as it did at our inception - highly qualified teachers, small class sizes, a bent toward classical education in a caring Christian environment - all which has been a winning equation for strong individual academic success. Our graduating students have gone on to outstanding academic successes of their own. "
