Purchasing tickets for Cinderella will be different than purchasing tickets in the past because you won’t be able to choose the exact seats you would like. It offers several options in the categories you want (Prime/House) and offers you suggestions. You can click on any seats suggested. This is a feature that we are unable to change. Questions? Please contact Mary Hudon at mhudon@kingsschools.org.

Attention Parents of the Class of 2017
We have a tradition to honor our Seniors with a video presentation at the end of their graduation ceremony. The video includes two pictures of each senior, one when they were a child, and their senior picture. In order to make this a success, we need your help. Please email Ms. Gracey two pictures – one of your student between the ages of 1 and 6 and the second, a picture that was taken sometime during their senior year. Please email your pictures to khsgradvideo@gmail.com no later than Monday, May 8th. Thanks for taking the time to do this. We promise you will be happy that you did!

Junior Senior Ball
The Class of 2018 is proud to present the 2017 Junior Senior Ball which will take place at the Seattle Aquarium on Friday, May 5th from 7:45 to 10:45 p.m. 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. David and his talented crew from Classic Images will again be on site for photographs. If you have any questions, please contact the Junior Class Advisor, Bob Fretz, at rfretz@kingssschools.org.
