A Favorite King’s High School Tradition and a Fun Family Outing!
King’s High School Parent Council invites you to join us THIS Sunday, December 3rd, to “deck the halls” of our school! Christmas décor throughout the buildings is a special treat for students and faculty and it kicks off the season in a delightful way for all—especially a fun surprise for freshmen and first-time students. Parent Council will provide Christmas music, coffee and cocoa, Christmas cookies, etc. A bonus: students who help decorate will earn service hours. Dads are especially welcome as we have two big, artificial trees that need assembling.

  • What: King’s High School Christmas Decorating
  • Date: Sunday, December 3rd
  • Time: Noon-whenever we finish (typically no more than 3 hours)
  • What to bring: A sense of fun and willingness to pitch in! We’ll provide all the materials and photos of decorating year’s past
  • Who: Willing volunteers can include moms, dads, students, siblings—just need all to dive in!
  • Service Hours Available: Students please bring your Service Hours sheet and see Kathryn Stenger on site to sign at the end of decorating

Homecoming Edition of the Quill
The Quill, the student-led news publication at King’s High School since 1953, would like to increase the number of advertisements in our upcoming Homecoming edition to reduce costs. We believe your business would benefit from this advertisement and our publication would benefit from your support. We would love our 16-page Homecoming edition to be in color, as a gift to our alumni who are coming home. The Quill is distributed monthly to the 500 students of King’s High as well as faculty and parents. Homecoming would be specifically special because of the many alumni returning home so we are hoping to print enough copies for everyone to have one. If you would like to help us, we are offering an advertisement spot that measures about 3.75 x 3.5 inches in our 17 x 11.5 paper and the cost would be $25. We can take submissions of images and text and design an ad for you, or you can submit a finished one directly to khsquill@gmail.com.  If you are interested in advertising or have any questions, you can reach us at khsquill@gmail.com. Thank you for your consideration, Alexandra Christophilis, Editor in Chief

SCRIP News
Check Payments:  Please be sure to put check payments in the SCRIP Drop Box located in the High School across from the main office. This ensures that we will have the payment so the order can be processed on time.  Orders without payments are not processed until the checks are received at the SCRIP office.  Checks left at the Elementary or other offices that are sent through inter office mail may not reach the SCRIP office in time to be included in the order, so please be aware that your order may be delayed until the next order deadline.

SCRIP Coordinator:  The SCRIP coordinator will be retiring after this year and the program is looking for someone who is able to take over the program starting next school year.  It is an easy job, does not require a lot of time, and benefits many families at King’s.  If you are interested, please contact Val Scheevel at scrip@kingsschools.org.  Training can begin next semester for plenty of time to get comfortable with the program.

Santa Claus is Coming To King’s! Alumni Help Raise Funds for King’s Missions

King’s is pleased to announce that two of our alumni, Macy’s Santa Karl Beals and Photographer Becca Howell, will be on campus Wednesday, December 6 with NEW HOURS from 4:00–9:00 p.m. for a Santa Photo fundraiser. This event will be one night only in Reimer Library in the CRISTA Administration Building. Proceeds will benefit King’s High School’s Spring mission trip to Kenya.
