Congratulations Mock Trial Team

King’s High School Mock Trial team had the privilege of competing at the Victory in Vegas Invitational from August 22-25. Nine students traveled to Nevada to compete against some of the best mock trial teams in the country. In addition to seeing the sights of Las Vegas, the team also competed in four rounds of competitive trial and came out 5th. Two King’s students also were recognized for outstanding performance, with Kathryn Morris winning the best overall witness, and Victoria Smith placed in the top four attorneys in the competition. Congratulations to these Knights!

 Volunteer Opportunity 

Have you been looking for a way to get more involved at King’s High School but you weren’t sure how? Parent Council is looking for a Student Appreciation Lead for the upcoming school year. This position would be responsible for requesting, organizing and setting up the much-coveted snacks provided for our students during mid-terms and finals. It is a great way to meet fellow parent volunteers and connect with students over one of their favorite things – food!
