Step Right Up, Get Your Tickets and Win!
In less than a month we’ll be celebrating King’s Schools and students at the 35th Annual Auction! If you buy your auction tickets today through Thursday March 8, you could win two free tickets! So, rally your friends and invite new families to join in the fun at your table. Drawing for two free tickets will happen Friday March 9! Buy your tickets at https://crista.ejoinme.org/2018KingsAuction.

There’s lots of auction activities to enjoy including two raffles, a wine grab, three silent auctions, a dessert dash and a live auction.  If you can’t attend, but still want to support the auction, our biggest need right now is collecting wine, desserts, Nordstrom and Costco gift cards! If you can help by donating any of these items we’d be SO grateful!

We’re shining the spotlight on these great items this week:

  • VIP Seafair Experience for Four
  • Suncadia Weekend Get-A-Way
  • Personal Shopping Day Extravaganza
  • Italian Townhouse in Tuscany for a Week

If your student needs service hours, the auction team can help! Just go to the Signup Genius at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0b49aba92e5-kings.

La Casa de Amor Mission Trip!
The excitement continues to build for La Casa de Amor! Students are faithfully giving their offerings and preparations continue with the mission team of faculty, parents, and children. Even though the offerings are mainly student focused, we welcome any parents who desire to contribute to this ministry of providing a home for the Molinda-Reyes family in Mexico.  See the attached flier for information on the Molinda-Reyes family.  Checks are being accepted. Please write checks to King’s Schools and indicate Elementary Missions on the memo line. Each classroom has a goal of $500. Thank you for your generosity and expressions of love for the family and the Lord!
