Annual Magazine Renewal and New Subscription Event If you would like to renew or subscribe to new magazines for the coming year, we are once again offering an online portal for your convenience. A portion of each order will go to our school and be used for curriculum enrichment at the elementary. Just go to the website for a list of selections. The website is available 365 days a year for your convenience! If you have any questions, please contact the school office and Mr. Kelly will provide assistance.

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’.

When you are emailing the office, please be sure to email both Mrs. de Langen at mdelangen@kingsschools.org and Miss Soriano at soriano@kingsschools.org.

Communications
Any change in student pick-up at the end of the day needs to go through the office. This is the only way to be sure your student gets the message. If you send an email to the teacher, he/she may not be available to respond due to teaching students. Please Call Mrs. de Langen or Miss Soriano at 206-546-7258.

Emails and/or Phone Messages
Our school policy is that emails or phone messages from parents will be returned by the end of the next business day.

Carpool Confusion at Drop-Off?
Happy to clarify for you!

  • Students should NEVER be dropped off anywhere on either side of Dayton Ave. N.
  • Students should be dropped off INSIDE the carpool area.

Lunch with Your Children
Parent seating space at lunchtime is limited. Please wait until ALL students are seated to see if there is adequate space for you. You may end up kneeling or standing by your child! Thank you!
