Kendall Christian School is celebrating their 40th birthday with a Birthday Bash/Touch-a-Truck Day on February 23rd from 10am – 2pm.
Nestled on Kendall Presbyterian Church’s 7-acre campus, on Historic Killian Drive, Kendall Christian School has been serving our community for the past 40 years. It will celebrate its 40th Birthday Bash on Saturday, February 23rd, with a Touch-a-Truck Day, a free community event, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, at 8485 SW 112th Street.
Kids of all ages can have a safe, up-close, hands-on experience with over 30 vehicles including semi-trucks, police vehicles, an ambulance and a helicopter. Also on hand will be the Florida Marlins Mobile, K9 units fromMDPD SWAT, construction equipment, local food trucks and much more.
Touch-a Truck Day will also be a Kendall Christian Alumni reunion. Thousands of children have enjoyed a quality Christian education over the past four decades. Our graduates have gone on to attend Miami’s top private schools, and more recently the most coveted public school magnate programs. Many have families of their own now, and KCS would like to see them all come home. All KCS alumni are encouraged to come, bring the family, and make sure to stop by the Alumni Table.
If you’ve never visited, KCS encourages you to come see what it’s all about. The quiet, inviting campus, with its “forest” of oak trees and cheery classrooms is like a home-away-from-home for its students. KCS offers strong academics, a full music and art program, Spanish, and a challenging science program taught in our science lab. KCS also boasts the latest in computers and technology, including an iPad Lab and “smart” boards in all classrooms grade K4 to 5th grade.
But none of that means anything without the right faculty. KCS students are taught by a highly qualified, caring faculty, who love what they do.
Janet Franco, parent of an alumni and 4th grade teacher for over 9 years, knows why she does what she does. “I love to instill the love of discovery and learning in children,” says Mrs. Franco. “KCS is a place where both happen every day.”
Teri Lacret, whose children also graduated from KCS, has taught science to K5 through 5th grade for 7 of her 14 years at KCS. “I love teaching science,” says Mrs. Lacret, with a big contagious smile, “because it’s so exciting and interactive! And through science, I am actually teaching them about God and His amazing creation.”
Claudia Gonzalez, PTF President, mother of 3, and KCS parent for the last ten years, says she loves the atmosphere at KCS. “It feels like a family,” she says. “The teachers are open and easy to talk to. They take a sincere interest in their students, and that’s important to me as a parent.”
At the head of Kendall Christian School is Principal Cindy Krepcho, who came to KCS four years ago and offers over 17 years of administrative experience. “It is so rewarding to lead such a dynamic team. I feel privileged to work with such an outstanding and caring faculty and staff,” says Mrs. Krepcho, who has seen the school through many changes and improvements, especially in the area of technology. “The school has undergone significant changes over the last 40 years,” Mrs. Krepcho affirms, “but our core stays the same. I’m proud to be part of this thriving ministry.”
