Message from the Board President,†
Baba Richard Isaac
† 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.†
