Early Release Day - Thursday, December 12

On Thursday, December 12, we will have an early release day for faculty professional growth. Dismissal for students will be at 11:15 AM.


The day's focus for teachers will be on our district curriculum accommodation plan (DCAP) which includes using universal accommodations to reach all learners.

New Library Books from the PTSO

Thanks to a generous donation from the PTSO, we were able to to purchase $750 of new books for the KPMS library. Students have already begun to take advantage of the new and exciting offerings! Each book has a bookplate that recognizes the donation.


Thank you to our PTSO and to the parents and guardians who have contributed to the organization!

Candy Cane Sale

During lunch this week and next, the Student Council members will be selling candy canes. Students can buy a candy cane and write out a message to friends, teachers, or staff members. The candy canes will be delivered to homerooms on Friday, December 20th. Please be aware that no anonymous messages will be allowed.


Candy canes are $1 each. All proceeds will be used to purchase gift cards for local families in need for the holidays.


PARENTS/GUARDIANS CAN SEND CANDY CANES TOO! If you would like to send your child a candy cane, please send an email to candycanes@kingphilip.org with the following information:


  • Your child’s name

  • Homeroom

  • Message


Then, please send your money in an envelope marked Mrs. Hartwell and have your child drop it off in the box labeled for Mrs. Hartwell in the main office or give it to her directly in Room 203.


Your children will love getting candy canes from family (including pets!) and we appreciate your support of such a worthy cause!
