Fun Family Friday challenge: Grandparent/Grandfriend Day
Our grandparent/grand friends are important to us at KCA. We feel they are a gift from God! Let’s bless them!
We cannot do our regular grandparent/grand friend day like we usually do. So this year, we are going to show them how much they mean to us in a different way. Please take the time to think about all they mean to you and your family.

Put your ideas of how much they mean to you and put it in a short video maybe even with a song, story or poem. Make a card/letter to mail. Use your wild imagination to share how much you love them. Let’s bless the socks off them this next week.

All entries will be put in a draw for two pizzas. One pizza for you and one pizza for your grandparent/grand friend. If they don’t live in Cranbrook, we will send them a pizza gift card or email transfer etc.

Please have all blessings to Mrs. Zurrin @ wzurrin@kcacademy.ca by Saturday, May 30th by 6 pm.

Winner of Marshmallow/Toothpick tower is the Bird Family with an impressive 31 inches! Enjoy the frozen yogurt! All the towers were so different and so creative!!! I have LOVED each of these family challenges! Thank you for participating!

Fun Family Friday Challenge – Week 5
This week I am challenging our students and families to a “Musical Challenge”.???????? We want to see families “jam” together, sing a song, make some homemade instruments, play an instrument (recorders? ukelele?) piano, do a dance – be creative! Entries will be posted on social media and a name will be drawn on Saturday. The name drawn will win a gift certificate to Happy Cow Ice Cream!
I (Mrs. Zurrin) will be sending out my song tomorrow – look out for a song sung by your principal!

We continue to pray for our leaders, who are making decisions for our communities and province. We pray for wisdom. We pray for God to heal our land.
