Mock Trial State
Mock Trial had another successful year earning a ninth place ranking in the State of Washington; Eneya Kwesele, Wesley Bahng and Jake Orme took votes for best witness and Caroline Kulits, Nicholas Grimm, and Jake Orme got votes for best attorney. For the entire tournament of 24 teams, Jake Orme won the award for best witness in the state. Congratulations Mock Trial!

Congratulations to our robotics team, the CyberKnights who had a spectacular weekend! They competed at the Glacier Peak district meet with 40 teams competing. Overall they finished in the top 4, getting knocked out in the semi-finals. The CyberKnights were in first place through almost all the qualifying matches (all day Saturday and most of Sunday morning) and lost their last match because one of their partners was unable to climb the rope. This one loss knocked them down to 3rd place but still allowed them to be the 3rd alliance captain for final alliance selection. In addition they won the Industrial Design award which is a robot/engineering award. Now they are on to Cheney for the PNW Regional Championship held April 6-8. Congratulations CyberKnights!

Nick of Time Foundation Youth Heart Screening
Cardiac arrest is the leading cause of sudden death in exercising or “at-play” young people and is typically the result of an undiagnosed structural or electrical problem of the heart. Shoreline School District is hosting a screening clinic on Wednesday, April 5th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at Shorecrest High School. The clinic is open to any youth ages 14 to 24 regardless of where they attend school. If you are interested, detailed information can be found in the attachment.

Sophomore Parent Night
Save the date for Sophomore Parent Night planned for Tuesday, April 18th at 7:00 p.m. in the Library Commons. Hear from our counseling team about what to expect as your sophomore prepares to move into the second half of his or her high school experience. A Kaplan representative will be here to talk about the ASPIRE test the students took in October and what you can learn from their scores (which you will receive that evening). All three counselors will talk about specific topics connected to your student’s junior year. Lots of helpful information will be provided so you won’t want to miss this meeting!

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.

SCRIP is transitioning away from office hours since most people are ordering online, or filling out the SCRIP TO GO form and sending it in with a check. If you don’t want to place orders online, you can print out a SCRIP TO GO form that has a few local vendors to choose from. Send the form and a check in to the SCRIP DROP BOX. We will fill the order and will send it to the office designated on your SCRIP Agreement Form. You must have a SCRIP account set up so we can get your tuition rebates and orders to the right place. The form is located at www.kingsschools.org in the parent section under SCRIP program. If you have any questions please contact scrip@kingsschools.org.
