Drum Line Opportunity

If any junior high students are interested in joining the King’s High School Drumline, they will be hosting practice tryouts and meet and greets on April 16th, 18th, 23rd and 25th after school in the High School music hall. Practices are from 3 pm to 5 pm and students can come on in at any time and do not have to stay for the entire practice.  They are not looking for any specific people and are not filling in specific drums, so anyone is welcome. Students do not have to know how to play as they are willing to teach you. For any questions, please contact Captain Andrew Coffey at either andrew_coffey@comcast.net or at 425-530-3995. Thank you.

Service Opportunities

There are several events coming up where students can volunteer and receive service hours.  Saturday, May 11, World Concern hosts a 5K, and they can use help setting up, etc.  Go to worldconcern.org/volunteer for more information.

After school home track meets (April 24 & May 8) need students to help as well.  Please email Mrs. Jansen at rtblackmer@hotmail.com.
