 Please contact Judy Kelly at jkelly@kingsschools.org if you have any questions.

Missing School for Two or More Days?
Anytime that your student will miss two or more days of school, please remember to contact the main office so we can have them complete a Pre-Arranged Absence form. You can send a note in with your student, call the office at (206) 546-7241, or email nwhite@kingsschools.org. We will need the dates the student will be gone and the reason for the absence. We will prepare the pre-arranged absence form and get it to your student.

Community Impact Day
One of the core values of our faith is service. At King’s High School, our hope is that students not only complete 40 service hours a year, but in doing so, they begin to develop a passion for giving back to local and global communities. Today during chapel our speaker explained what it means to serve as a volunteer as well as through vocation. During lunch approximately 20 non-profit organizations introduced our students to volunteer opportunities that address a variety of passion and skill. Click here to see what organizations were represented and a bit about their ministry.

CyberKnights Unveil Their Robot
The CyberKnights hosted their 5th Annual FIRST Robotics Competition Unveiling event last week. Sixteen teams from across the region came to King’s and numerous teams from around the world participated via live stream. They came together to “unveil” the robot they are building for the 2018 FIRST Robotics Competition Season. In just a few short weeks, these teams will be battling it out on the field for a chance to compete at the FIRST Robotics World Championships in April. The event started with a catered dinner provided by Red Cork Bistro & Catering. Teams took turns unveiling their robots which included CAD drawings, partially built robots, or completely finished bots. In the FIRST spirit of “coopertition”, teams shared ideas and provided feedback to each other to help everyone improve. KIRO7 covered the event and you can watch the news story here.
