Environmental Science Class
On Saturday, the environmental science class partnered with UW students and the City of Shoreline to restore the habitat at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park. The restoration efforts are part of a long-term project to remove invasive plants, establish native species, and reinforce the hillside to prevent erosion. This is the seventh consecutive year that King’s High School has contributed to this restoration project. If anyone is interested in being a part of these efforts, parents and students can participate by volunteering at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park on Saturday, March 31 from 10 am to 2 pm. Service hours are available, but a signed waiver form is required for anyone under the age of eighteen. Contact Mrs. Archer for more details at jarcher@kingsschools.org.

Attention Sophomores

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 28th 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.
