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!

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!

Attention Sophomores
Are you interested in taking the PSAT?  During your junior year, all students will take the PSAT which is a practice for the SAT college entrance exam. We will be offering the PSAT here at King’s to all interested sophomore students on Saturday, April 28th beginning at 8:00 a.m. You may be asking, “Why would I want to take the PSAT as a sophomore when I am taking it as a junior?”  This is a great question!  For the top 1 to 3% of junior PSAT scores, there may be National Merit distinctions and scholarships. The PSAT doesn’t change much from year to year, and if you are interested is familiarizing yourself with the test, this is true testing opportunity. If you would like to take the sophomore PSAT on April 27th at 8:00 a.m., please sign up at the link below. The cost for the test is $20 (charged to your tuition account) and the deadline for signups is March 15th.  Questions? Contact Mrs. Matthias at cmatthias@kingsschools.org.
