One Knight Celebration

The King’s High School graduating class of 2020 invites you and your family to attend a spirit-filled event, the “Passport to Knighthood” carnival on Friday, September 27th from 3-5 pm at Woolsey Stadium. The carnival is after school, before the Back-to-School BBQ/Convocation and High Schoool Football game against Cascade of Leavenworth.

There will be delicious treats, bouncy houses, a petting zoo, face painting, and so much more! Most will require tickets except the Spirit Store, Snack Shack, Italian Sodas and a few others. An average of 3-10 tickets will be needed per booth. A suggested guideline is at least 40 tickets per child.

Please join our entire King’s community for this fun celebration!
