In recent years our campus has benefited from many volunteers who generously gave their time and labor during TKA Pride Days. Mark your calendar for our next TKA Pride Day event Saturday, April 9, from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Everyone in the academy family is welcome to come and help with some of our spring cleaning and maintenance needs that can get pushed aside amidst the hectic pace of the school year. Various projects will be underway, and everyone is encouraged to help out wherever they can. This is a great opportunity for high school students to log some community service hours.
