Congratulations, Class of 2017!

On May 24, two young men, draped in maile lei, were honored as the KCS graduating class of 2017. It was a night filled with much sincerity, humor, and wisdom, as the guest speakers recalled memories from the past and looked expectantly to God’s plans in the future (Jeremiah 29:11). With many self-deprecating anecdotes, Salutatorian Paul Lee reflected on how he and classmate Sam Stone had grown over the past six years, thanks to their patient parents and teachers. During his commencement address, Principal Mark Gallagher challenged the graduates with a top ten list of how they could be successful during their freshmen year in college, with practical advice ranging from “floss regularly” to “find Christian fellowship.” 

As a class gift, Paul and Sam have blessed the campus with two ceramic planters, which will grace the main office entrance of the Clarence T.C. Ching building and remind us of this very special, second graduating class of KCS. We truly wish them the best as they continue their education at University of Portland and Azusa Pacific University!

Mrs. Silsby's Legacy at KCS

Warm. Loving. Joyful. An unforgettable smile. A beautiful voice. These are just a few of the characteristics that make Mrs. Sara Silsby so special to the fabric of KCS.  At the conclusion of the school year, she will retire after working with preschoolers for 35 years.  As a teacher’s aide, she has served faithfully with five different teaching partners: Dee Arnold, Mei-Ling Spearing, Nadine (Lee) Marchessault, Merle (Nishikawa) Sakaguchi, and Vera Kadomoto.  Multiple generations and hundreds of students began their school careers under Mrs. Silsby’s loving care and instruction.

When reflecting on her early years at KCS, Mrs. Silsby recalls the Lord’s hand in the circumstances surrounding her hiring by Principal Mrs. McKenzie.  Through the ups and downs during her time here, she has always tried teach the children to be kind to one another as well as instill a sense of value that comes from being created and loved by God. 

Mrs. Silsby will miss working with the kids, especially on art projects!  During this next season of her life, her main priority is to care for her husband, John.  She also hopes to get involved in the KCC Seniors Ministry and join a singing group.

Special guest speakers shared their heart for the nations during today’s Missions Emphasis Day event.  From the mountains of China and the rural areas of Vietnam to the streets of LA, speakers brought to life personal experiences of ministering to different people groups. Students also learned about ways they can partner with those who have a heart for missions.  Through prayer for missionaries and unreached people groups, KCS students can be an integral part of sharing the love of Christ locally, nationally, and abroad!
