Note from Mr. Wright

Dear King Families, September 3, 2021


Week three has wrapped up and it was another great week of teaching and learning here at King Middle. I wish everyone a safe and relaxing three day weekend. A few friendly reminders for our families as we move into next week.


Parents and caregivers, please remind your students to bring their chromebooks to school every day. We need your help in making sure students have what they need to succeed in school each day.


I Ready testing is happening in both Math and ELA classes. Please remind your scholar to bring headphones or earbuds for their test if they have them. I-Ready gives us data on our students on their present levels and gives our teachers data that will help support your child's learning and growth throughout the year so please encourage your scholar to give their best effort.


The King Library will be hosting a Scholastic Book Fair September 13th-17th. The Book Fair is a fun way to get kids excited about reading! Please support the King Library and help inspire your child to read. Information about how you can shop in person or online will be sent home with your student next week.

Estimadas familias King, 3 de septiembre de 2021

La tercera semana ha terminado y fue otra gran semana de enseñanza y aprendizaje aquí en King Middle. Les deseo a todos un fin de semana de tres días seguro y relajante. Algunos recordatorios amistosos para nuestras familias a medida que avanzamos hacia la próxima semana.

Padres y cuidadores, recuerden a sus estudiantes que traigan sus Chromebooks a la escuela todos los días. Necesitamos su ayuda para asegurarnos de que los estudiantes tengan lo que necesitan para tener éxito en la escuela todos los días.

Las pruebas de I Ready se están llevando a cabo en las clases de matemáticas y ELA. Por favor recuerde a su estudiante que traiga audífonos o audífonos para su examen si los tiene. I-Ready nos brinda datos sobre nuestros estudiantes en sus niveles actuales y brinda a nuestros maestros datos que ayudarán a apoyar el aprendizaje y el crecimiento de su hijo durante todo el año, así que anime a su estudiante a hacer su mejor esfuerzo.

La Biblioteca King será la sede de una Feria del Libro Scholastic del 13 al 17 de septiembre. ¡La Feria del Libro es una manera divertida de hacer que los niños se entusiasmen con la lectura! Por favor apoye a la Biblioteca King y ayude a inspirar a su hijo a leer. La próxima semana se enviará a casa con su estudiante información sobre cómo puede comprar en persona o en línea.


Reunión de MLK PTSO - 7 de septiembre de 2021 a las 6:30 p.m. a través de Zoom - Regístrese antes de las 8 p.m. El lunes 6 de septiembre, en el siguiente enlace: https://forms.gle/SXWzaqM1TaPn8MjMA.


Respetuosamente,

Kenneth Wright - Director de la escuela secundaria King

Chromebooks and water don't mix!

Please tell your students not to carry water bottles inside their backpacks with books and chromebooks. Water bottles often end up wet on the outside because of condensation and make the things around them wet.

Thanks for your help!

Student Chromebooks

We are going one to one, meaning every student will get a Chromebook checked out to them. Students will be expected to take their Chromebook back and forth from home to school each day.

You can protect your school device! A form to sign up to insure the Chromebook will be sent home with each student. We highly encourage all parents to insure their child's device. It's just $26 and it will cover the Chromebook for the year.


Insurance covers damage, loss and theft. Unlimited Claims, Full Transferability, with No Deductible and No Hidden Fees!
