Going to JSB Tomorrow?
Remember I-5 and other roads into Seattle are likely to be very badly congested. It is best to dine near the ship and spare headache and heartache getting there on time as we sail from Pier 57 at 7:30 p.m. sharp. The ship waits for no one! Ladies should bring a sweater or wrap as it is likely to be chilly on the outside top deck once the sun goes down.

Spring Spirit Week
Next week is our first ever SPRING SPIRIT WEEK! Leading up to our May 11th benefit Rock Concert for Beacon of Hope Schools (buy your tickets ASAP!), we have a whole week of spirit dress up.

National Mental Health Month: MIND Yo’ HEALTH
May is National Mental Health Month! Throughout the month students will have many opportunities at school to participate in healthy, mental health boosting activities. We’re calling the campaign MIND Yo’ HEALTH. Each week will have a theme and focus, giving students healthy ways to support their mental health.

  • This Week: To kick off the month we focused on Gratitude and Kindness. Students spent time during lunch creating gratitude banners and giving each other compliment cards. Gratitude is proven to be an amazing way to redirect the brain away from feelings of anxiety and depression and release feel good hormones. It’s a simple but powerful tool!!
  • Family Challenge: Make a point this weekend to share things you are grateful for with each other. A gratitude journal or poster can help the family develop habits around gratitude. Try it out and notice how it changes the atmosphere of your home.

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.

Please Pray
Recently one of our King’s families, the Walkers, lost their home and all of their precious belongings to a house fire that suddenly has left them without a home and in need of some necessities. They have temporary housing but are looking for a long term solution. Colin is new to the school this year as a junior and is a 3rd generation King’s student. We are blessed and thankful to have him in our school family. Please join us in praying for this dear family and if you are interested in supporting them in any way, please contact Mary Hudon at mhudon@kingsschools.org or at (206) 713-9481.
