More fun from last week’s Christmas parties…

Mrs. Sides’ daughter and former KPA student, Reagan Sides, brought her guitar and they all had fun fiddlin’ and singing Christmas carols!
With the help of Mrs. Evers and Mrs. Bridges, the art students made over 1,000 cookies!

In our last video of 2018, we talk with Maitlyn Yarbrough who had a great conversation in class with the 6th and 7th grade girls that serves as a perfect reminder for all of us this Christmas season!
The SoL girls bible study group sang carols for residents at the Lubbock Hospitality Nursing Facility on December 15. The residents and their families enjoyed the singing and couldn’t wait to take pictures with the girls. They visited several rooms as well as sang up and down the hallways for those who couldn’t get out. What a blessing for the girls it was!
