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. Please see the Knight Guide for more information.

King’s CyberKnights

Over spring break, our CyberKnights competed at the PNW FRC Regional Champs against the best teams from Washington and Oregon taking 2nd in qualifications and 3rd overall.  This gave us enough district points to finish 8th overall in the district and advance to the FRC World Championship in Houston.  We were one of the few teams to “solo a rocket” which is a feat that not many teams nationwide are able to do.  The CyberKnights will be competing in Houston at the FRC Championships with matches started next Thursday and running through Saturday.  More information to follow!

Spring College Fairs

There are two upcoming college fairs at Seattle University that will be a great opportunity for students to gather information on multiple colleges and universities. The Pacific Northwest Association for College Admission Counseling (PNACAC) will host a college fair at Seattle University on April 27th from 10am-1pm. This is the second largest college fair in the Seattle area and will include close to 100 colleges and universities from across the country. For more information regarding location, parking, and colleges attending check the PNACAC website.  The Association of Jesuit Colleges & Universities will also host a college fair at Seattle University on Thursday, May 2nd from 6-8pm, where students can meet representatives from Jesuit Universities across the country. You can find more information regarding this fair on Seattle University’s website. Questions? Contact college@kingsschools.org.

Summer Opportunities Fair

Summer is a great time to try a new activity, take a class on a college campus, or volunteer in something meaningful. On Wednesday, April 24th during lunch, there will be a Summer Opportunities Fair in the Learning Commons where students can learn about ways they can get involved over the summer. Representatives from organizations like Camp BioMed, Digipen Institute, the Edmonds Discovery Program, King’s Camps, Operation Sack Lunch, Seattle University, and the Union Gospel Mission will be available to discuss ways that students can get involved over the summer. Please encourage your student to attend! Question? Contact college@kingsschools.org
