King’s is the Greatest School on Earth!
As the holiday season is right around the corner, the auction team is counting our blessings and we want to thank everyone involved with King’s Schools largest fundraiser of the year – the 35th Annual Benefit Auction. Because of the amazing and generous community of families, King’s has been able to provide financial aid for students and the teacher endowment fund continues to increase and grow. We’re excited for another inspiring and fun evening celebrating King’s Schools. Mark your calendars for March 16, 2018.

There are so many ways to help …. from donating items from the Amazon or Target wish lists or your favorite local business, donating a delicious dessert or great bottle of wine to helping with big or small auction “tasks”. Find out more at https://kingsschools.org/support/auction/. Thank you for everything you do – we are truly grateful!

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.

Please label OVER-THE-COUNTER medications with your student’s first and last name. Forms are available in school office or on Parents Web.
