Parent Council: Teacher Appreciation and Compassionate Ministry
The Parent Council supports our teachers, staff and family community in many ways.  One way we do that is through our Compassion/Crisis Ministry that supports families in need.  From time to time, some families need a little extra help to cover unexpected needs.  This ministry relies on donations from our King’s community to make this support happen.  Please consider anonymously donating a gift card or cash to the Compassion Ministry.

Suggestions for donations:  Fred Meyer, Costco, Target, gas cards.  Cash is also an option (no checks).  Donations can be brought to Marie de Langen in the elementary office. Contact Julie Gibson [email protected] or Ann Faris [email protected]  with questions.

Supporting Staff Gifts and Specialists:
Another way we support our staff is through small birthday gifts for staff and specialists.  These teachers do not have a class of their own that would normally provide a birthday gift, so Parent Council gives a small gift to honor and celebrate them on their birthday.  We would appreciate some help in covering the cost of these gifts – we currently have 18 staff and specialists.  If you are interested, please click on the Sign Up Genius link below to sign up for a $10 donation!  Donations can then be brought to the office and put in the envelope for ‘Teacher Appreciation’.
Thank you for prayerfully considering your donations.
