Native American Heritage Month: November

We are blessed to have the Rhinehart family so willing to share their Alaska Native heritage with us each year during November.  This year, in honor of Native American Heritage month, they have created a cultural experience for all our K – 6 students for Monday, November 18 at 2:05 p.m. in our cafeteria/gym.  The assembly will be comprised of dances and a cultural presentation involving their family from the Tlingit and Haida tribes.  Thank you Rhinehart family for sharing your rich history with us!

Report Cards will be sent home electronically on Wednesday, November 20th

Holiday Events

Math Olympiad

If your student loves math and is looking for an extra challenge, participating in the Shoreline Math Olympiad is an excellent opportunity. Math Olympiad is a math competition open to students in grades 4-8. If your student would like to begin preparing, please have them stop by the library and pick up a packet of materials from Mrs. Boone.

Before school care is from 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. and after school care is from the end of the school day to 6:00 p.m.  KKC follows the school calendar.  All students are enrolled in King’s Kids Club at the hourly rate.

Medication at School
During the course of the school year, your child may need to take medication at school. A “Permission to Administer Medication Form” must be completed with a physician and parent signature. All medications, OVER-THE-COUNTER and PRESCRIPTION, require a completed form and must be in their original containers. Prescription medications, including inhalers, must have a prescription label. Please label OVER-THE-COUNTER medications with your student’s first and last name. Forms are available in the school office.
