Congratulations DECA!
Twenty-four King’s DECA students just returned from the DECA International competition in Atlanta, Georgia. These students represented our school community very well being recognized for Gold Level School Based Enterprise, Community Service, Chapter Campaigns and more. Three students were also called to the stage for their outstanding performance in competition. Junior Cristina Cavero and Freshman Kat Kirkpatrick were recognized for top role play scores and Junior Drew Brennan qualified as a finalist in Business Services Management. If you see one of these students, be sure to ask them what “real” rain is like! Congratulations!

The Sun is Out!
We are all thankful to be celebrating the beautiful weather, especially after such a long winter, but as you dress for warmer days, please remember the dress code established for the school environment. Skirts and shorts must be no more than 5 inches from the middle of the knee. Tank tops with the sides cut out, spaghetti straps, or razor backs need to be saved for the weekend. Midriff coverage is a must. If you have questions about dress code, please feel free to stop by and talk with a counselor. If weekend-wear finds its way to school, you may be invited to talk with someone and offered corrective measures.
