DECA International Competition
Another successful DECA International trip! Last Wednesday, 19 students from King’s High School DECA chapter flew to Anaheim, California for the International Career Development Conference. This was the largest group from King’s to attend this conference. After days of testing and competition, Imogene Schildwachter and Abby Weeks were named top 20 finalists with Emma Tornow receiving a top role play score and a $1,000 college scholarship presented by Otis Spunkmeyer. Imogene brought home a 2nd place International trophy for King’s and broke a school record! Congratulations to everyone who competed and we are proud of the accomplishments of all 19 of our International qualifiers.

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!
