Junior Senior Ball
The Class of 2018 is proud to present the 2017 Junior Senior Ball which will take place at the Seattle Aquarium, 1483 Alaska Way, on Friday May 5th from 7:45 to 10:45 p.m. PLEASE NOTE: This is a change in time! There is no school that day. Details are as follows:

Tickets are on sale through Friday, April 21; Seniors $25, Juniors $50, and outsiders and underclassmen $80.00, all 3 prices reduced from last year. Dress is formal. Parking is available at a large but fairly empty parking lot across the street to the north, under the Viaduct, which requires a short walk around a construction fence in front of the Aquarium. Several restaurants in price categories from low to high are within walking distance, and the Seattle Great Wheel, next door to the Aquarium, is open until midnight.

A well-stocked and varied dessert buffet, with a signature mocktail, will be served during the dance.  The dance will be held in the Great Hall, the large room at the front of the Aquarium with the 400,000 gallon tank.  The Otter Show is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. and the galleries will be open until 10:00. The tidal pool will be open until 30 minutes before closing. David and his talented crew from Classic Images will again be on site, upstairs, for photographs. If you have any questions, please contact the Junior class faculty advisor, Bob Fretz, at rfretz@kingssschools.org.

Teacher Appreciation Week is Just Around the Corner
…and we have some wonderful things in store for our teachers and staff!  Please help us say “THANK YOU” to them. At King’s, we’re incredibly blessed to have an amazing community of teachers and staff who care deeply about our children. In recognition for all they do, please help us treat them to a special week of thoughtful treats from the King’s High School Parents.

Signing up to help is easy! Just click on the link below then send in cash (preferred) or a check (payable to Jaymie Cizek) to Mrs. White in the main office. Please send in your donation by Friday, April 28th.  Thanks in advance! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0c4aa8ae2aa7fb6-teacher1

ONE MORE THING… if you and/or your High School student could write a brief note of appreciation to the teachers and staff (pick an extra special one, or choose all) and include the note(s) with your cash/check by April 28th, that would be great!  If you’re in a pinch, consider an email (just put ‘THANK YOU’ in the subject line so they don’t think it’s an urgent parent/student email).  http://kingsschools.org/parents/staff-directory/

Teacher Appreciation Week Treats (Week of May 1-4)

  • Monday; Mid-Morning Pick-Me-Up (Lattes, Coffee, Tea, Scones, Muffins)
