á Habari Gani, to the Khepera Charter School community.The struggle continues and Khepera is surviving intoits 8th year. The institution has made AYP (annual yearly progress) every year that it has been eligible and the Board of Tustees extends an Asante Sana (thank you) to the parents, students, parents and teaching staff in anticipation of a new school year. I was asked to address the stakeholders and, during my reflections I asked the parents, why did they choose Khepera to educate there children? I expect an answer in the near future. After my brief presentation I observed our Wazuri greeting our parents at a table set up with slighty used uniforms for parents to obtain at no cost. This effort of unity and teamwork, made me reflect on the logo that is the identity of Khepera. The Scarab or Dung Beetle represents the mission that is in congryence with all those who deliver services to your children. When one does the research on this symbol you will find in depth analysis of the logos use and meaning. I have given below, my interpretation of its meaning to our institution.á

ááá á
The Scarab that is the representation for Khepera Charter Schools' logo, presents the life of the Dung Beetle laboring and ever moving totowards regeneration of what would appear to be aáwaste. The students that are served being drivenáfrom an arrested developement to a reawkening of theáAfrikan consciousness.áThe symbol that is usedáin our logo pictures the Scarab moving the sun (RA)áinto its new daily position to give light as well hope of a new day for our students to awake from a mental slumber through a WHMY MSW (rebirth/awakening) utilizing an Afrikan centered pedagogy, rituals, languages and, symbols to assist in the institutions board of trustees,áadministrators, facilitators, support staff, students, parents, and the Afrikan community reach its HEKA.áTo Khepera Charter School.
