SCRIP News
There will be no order placed on Monday November 6th or Monday November 20th due to school being out of session later those weeks. Be sure to get your orders in on other deadlines to stock up on cards. We will sell SCRIP TO GO (a limited variety of cards in inventory) on the 6th and 20th from 8:15 a.m. – 8:45 a.m. if you need to stop by and stock up, or you can send the form in to the SCRIP drop box with your check. You can find the SCRIP TO GO form at www.kingsschools.org/parent/scrip-program. Forms turned in by Monday at 8:15 a.m. will be filled – inventory permitting – and available for pick up later that day.

As we move into the holiday season, please be aware that there will be some weeks that we do not have any order deadlines or fill dates for physical cards. You will find these dates on the King’s calendar. Please plan your SCRIP purchases accordingly. SCRIPNOW and Reloads are available any time when paying with Presto Pay.

Carpool News!
King’s has a free online carpool-matching tool available for parents at CarpooltoSchool.comThis enables families to search for and connect with carpool partners, and manage their carpool schedule in a secure online environment. Only families who choose to participate in the program will appear in the carpool database. Access requests will only be granted to families enrolled at King’s, so families are assured that they are connecting with other school families.  Please read and review the Carpool Maps. If parents follow the plan, carpool runs smoothly.  All students are enrolled in King’s Kids Club. Carpool students not picked up by 3:00 p.m. will be signed into KKC.

Office Communications
When you are emailing the office, please be sure to email both Mrs. de Langen at mdelangen@kingsschools.org and Miss Soriano at ksoriano@kingsschools.org. Any change in student pick-up at the end of the day needs to go through the office.  This is the only way to be sure your student gets the message.  If you send an email to the teacher, he/she may not be available to respond due to teaching students.  Please Call Mrs. de Langen or Miss Soriano at 206-546-7258.

DECA High School Students Partnering with Local Businesses
DECA is hosting a Holiday Trade Show on Tuesday November 14, from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the King’s Garden Gym.  They have done trade shows in the past with between 1,500 and 2,000 people walking through and looking at their booths.  DECA students are working together to either create a booth or partner with a local business. If you have a small business and would be interested in partnering with a student to sell their product, there are three options for how a small business could contribute:

  • Option 1: The business could donate items which a student would sell with all proceeds benefiting our DECA program.
  • Option 2: The business could offer items on consignment in which a student would sell for the business. We would pay the cost value with all profits going to support King’s DECA.
  • Option 3: The business could set up a booth and sell the items themselves. They keep all the funds earned. This option has a $100 booth donation which must be received upon commitment of doing a booth. Donations must be payable to King’s Schools.

For more information please contact Cristina Cavero at ccavero6@gmail.com or 206-724-3662.

WeatherBug Station
As winter approaches you might want to check out our KING5 WeatherBug Station that is located on top of our intermediate building. Just click on the link and see the southern sky which includes a peek at the CRISTA Administrative Building and the CRISTA Media Radio Tower. Current school conditions and the forecast are included on the website. King’s Elementary has been a member of the WeatherBug Network for many years. We were one of the first reporting stations that included a camera in Western Washington.

You can also see our school listed on the bottom of your television screen while the King5 News is on throughout the day and evening!   http://legacy.weather.weatherbug.com/weather-safety/online-weather-center/OnlineWeatherCenter.aspx?aid=4922

Medication at School
During the course of the school year, your child may need to take medication at school. A “Permission to Administer Medication Form” must be completed with a physician and parent signature. All medications, OVER-THE-COUNTER and PRESCRIPTION, require a completed form and must be in their original containers. Prescription medications, including inhalers must have a prescription label. Please label OVER-THE-COUNTER medications with your student’s first and last name. Forms are available in school office or on Parents Web.

Annual Magazine Renewal and New Subscription Event
If you would like to renew or subscribe to new magazines for the coming year, we are once again offering an online portal for your convenience. A portion of each order will go to our school and be used for curriculum enrichment at the elementary. Just go to the website below for a list of selections. Go to:  http://www.gaschoolstore.com/landing.aspx?SID=2530749
The website is available 365 days a year for your convenience!  If you have any questions, please contact the school office and Mr. Kelly will provide assistance.

Special Note: When you arrive at the website it will ask you to enter your email and student’s name. Since we are not participating in any goal setting or prizes this year, go straight to the SHOPNOW button.  Thank you!
