Student Volunteer Opportunity!

This week the Environmental Science students welcomed Shoreline’s Mayor Will Hall to King’s High School. He met with students to discuss the state’s plan to recover the southern resident pod of orcas in the Puget Sound. He helped students identify the actions they can take to help the local salmon and orca populations. As a result, students are writing letters to their state representatives to urge them to move quickly to implement the recommendations of the Orca Task Force. As part of our community involvement, we will be volunteering at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park again this Saturday, March 9 from 10:00 am to noon. Come join us for the habitat restoration work and maybe spot some orcas. (Signed permission slips are required for students under the age of 18. See Mrs. Archer for details.)
