Principal’s Coffee Next Tuesday
Do you have questions about what is happening at Kings High School? Please join our Principal, Bob Ruhlman, and other high school administrators, for the Principal’s Coffee next Tuesday, October 10th at 8:30 a.m. in the Learning Commons. All high school parents are welcome to attend this informal event. We look forward to seeing you then!

Fall Focus Day is Wednesday
Wednesday, October 11th is Fall Focus Day for all high school students. During the first half of the day each class will engage in activities that focus on preparing for college life and beyond.

  • Freshmen will be visiting Seattle Pacific University. Our goal is to help students begin looking beyond 9th grade and to encourage them to develop strengths and passions that will help them find the best fit college. Each student will need a signed permission slip and a sack lunch on that day.
  • Sophomores will be heading to classrooms to take the Kaplan ½ & ½ exam. This test serves as a great practice for both the SAT and ACT and students will have access to their scores that same day! All students need to arrive to testing WITH their Surface in their backpack. Classroom assignments will be emailed home prior to testing.
  • Juniors will also be in classrooms to take the PSAT. Classroom assignments will be emailed home prior to testing.
  • Seniors will spend the morning rotating between three life skills seminars.
