I hope you had a most joyous Winter Break! We are looking forward to starting 2020 with you.
We will be kicking off the second semester with the King Fun Run on January 16. This is a PTA sponsored fundraiser done in coordination with Boosterthon. The Fun Run is an exciting event that is both an engaging learning experience and fundraiser for the school. As this is our only fundraiser for the year, we really rely on our community to come together to raise funds for King. The money raised this year will go towards funding field trips for all students in 20-21 school year. At King we value field trips, and by raising funds for field trips we will be able to offer field trips at a more reduced fee or free of charge. Please support us in this fundraising effort.
On January 31st please join me for our first monthly Coffee with the Principal at 8:15. You can hear about the latest projects and events at King, and learn about different ways to become involved. Coffee with the Principal will continue throughout the semester on the last Friday of the month in February and April.
WOW or Word of the Week is a recent addition to our daily announcements at King. Students not only hear an explanation of the word, but also a song and quote which relate to the word on the daily announcements. Students are invited to write or draw about an experience with the word. Those students who submit their work are entered into a weekly drawing for some fun King swag. Here are the WOWs for January.
Week of January 8 and 13: Honest
Week of January 21: Compassion
Week of January 28: Dedication
Thanks again for being an integral part of our community at King. Let’s make it a great start to a new decade and second semester at King!
