Serve Strong: Can Wars – December 4-7
Students of King’s Junior High will be competing in their first block classes as we collect cans for the Edmonds Food Bank.  According to the food bank, the most sought after items are soup, canned fruit, tuna, peas, corn, beans, tomato sauce, pasta sauce and peanut butter.  This is a required Serve Strong activity so all students need to participate.    Attached is the Serve Strong information explaining how students document their participation.

SCRIP News
Check Payments:  Please be sure to put check payments in the SCRIP Drop Box located in the High School across from the main office. This ensures that we will have the payment so the order can be processed on time.  Orders without payments are not processed until the checks are received at the SCRIP office.  Checks left at the Elementary or other offices that are sent through inter office mail may not reach the SCRIP office in time to be included in the order, so please be aware that your order may be delayed until the next order deadline.

SCRIP Coordinator:  The SCRIP coordinator will be retiring after this year and the program is looking for someone who is able to take over the program starting next school year.  It is an easy job, does not require a lot of time, and benefits many families at King’s.  If you are interested, please contact Val Scheevel at scrip@kingsschools.org.  Training can begin next semester for plenty of time to get comfortable with the program.
