Need greens for your home this holiday season?


Your child should have received a catalog and order form for wreaths, garland, centerpieces and swag. Orders are due by Wed the 25th. You can turn them in after school, with your money, to Haley. She will have a table near the entrance. Orders will be delivered to the child’s home.

No Kid Left Inside!

Some photos from Kiera Asay, the 6th grade teacher, of our kids at Outdoor School this year. This year the kids got to camp out for a whole week! The PTA provided sleeping bags again this year, but now King owns 10 sleeping bags that kids will be able to use in the future.

Meet the new King principal!

Hello King Families,
Thank you for a great two years. I am so proud of King students and families. Please read this message from Senior Director Karl Logan.
Thank you,
Eryn Berg
Proud Former Principal of King School

Dear King Families:

I am happy to tell you that Jill Sage, currently principal at Skyline K-8 School, will become the new principal at King starting July 1.

Principal Sage’s staff and leadership experiences in the arts, language immersion, equity work and raising student achievement makes her a great fit for King. Please read more about Principal Sage in the attached announcement from Superintendent Carole Smith.

Principal Sage asked me to invite you to an open house at King School on Wednesday July 1 from 3:30 pm to 4:30. Please  stop by the school if you can to meet and talk with Principal Sage.

I hope your summer is off to a good start.

Before and after care for next year

For those of you who have not yet heard the news, Eryn has negotiated with Peninsula to return to King next year in a new space sharing agreement so we will continue to have before and after care at King. This was due to a productive meeting that she had with Peninsula yesterday as well as the clear and positive messages she received from several of you about the importance of this service.
