You are invited to a Knight of Music and Improv, featuring Living Faith and KHS Live, doing what they do best! Tickets for Knight of the Arts are $5 for students, $15 for adults and $10 for adults over 65. This is a fundraising event to support their Spring Break Mission Trip. Knight of the Arts will be held tonight and tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. in Schirmer Auditorium. Tickets will also be sold at the door for both event dates.

Want to Play Football Next Year?
A player and parent meeting is scheduled for this Sunday, March 26th from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. in Schrimer Auditorium. Anyone interested in playing football should plan to attend this meeting.

Pre-registration for Classes
Just a reminder that the pre-registration forms for next year’s classes are due on Wednesday, March 29th. For those new to this process, pre-registration allows students to let us know what classes they are intending to take for the 2017-18 school year so that we build a schedule that is void of as many conflicts as possible. Students will actually register for classes later in May.

Final Exams are Next Week
The end-of-semester final exams will be held next Thursday, March 30th and Friday, March 31st.  School is dismissed at 12:30 on March 31st for Spring Break. Final exams need to be taken on the day and time scheduled.  Students are not permitted to take early or late finals except in cases of illness or exceptional circumstances.  Exceptions must be pre-approved by the principal.  Family vacations do not constitute exceptional circumstances.  Non-approved absences result in a “0” grade on the final exam.  During final exams, students are required to be in classes like regular school days.  The regular school attendance policy will apply to all absences.

And Speaking of Finals…
Parent Council is asking parents to consider supporting our students with healthy snacks during finals (see link below). We will focus our efforts on the full day, Thursday, the 30th and set out any leftovers on Friday, the 31st. Items can be dropped-off next Tuesday and Wednesday the 28th and 29th in the main office with Mrs. White. Cash donations are also appreciated and can be given to Mrs. White too. Thank you! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090e45afab23a20-march

Login for Surface Devices Changing
Attention Students: the login for Surface lab devices and for kingsschools network access will now only be accessible with the use of your Office 365 account login information. The generic account HSLab with password Myfirstpassword1 will be going away. Make it a practice to login only with your Office 365 account this week to make sure you know your username and password properly, as next week it will be your only access to internet and Surface lab carts. If you need a password reset please let Mr. Harcrow or Ms. Sancho know when you are on campus and we can change it for you in the library.
