At the Table with Dr. King

As we approach Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we are excited to be hosting an assembly titled “At the Table with Dr. King”. This presentation will be on January 15th and will be for all students K-12. Due to capacity limitations, in Schirmer auditorium, parents are invited to attend the K-3 session at 8:30 am.

This event is a great opportunity to convey to our students the importance and gravity of the work that Dr. King did for the Civil Rights Movement and proclaiming the name of Jesus.
Dr. King lived out Micah 6:8 to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God. He was a man of action that loved Jesus in both word and deed. We see this throughout his life including the peaceful marches he led in the face of opposition. At the elementary school, we want to honor his courage, message, and life.

May our students have hearts so compelled by their love of Christ that they are fearless in standing up for what is righteous. Dr. King set a great example.

La Casa Mission Project

Our King’s Elementary 2020 La Casa Mission Project occurs during Spring vacation (March 30 – April 3) in the suburbs of Tijuana, Mexico.

King’s Elementary has been sending teams of teachers, students, and their parents to build houses for needy Mexican Families for 24 years.  To date, King’s Elementary families have built 38 structures through our partnership with Baja Christian Ministries.

We look forward to sharing more information in preparation for sending our teams and partnering with families in our fundraising efforts!

Parent Prayer Opportunity – Wednesdays from 8:15-9:30 am

We need your help to lift King’s Schools in Prayer!

Vacations During School

King’s Elementary asks that you carefully consider not taking vacations during academic teaching time but instead plan your trips as much as possible during regularly scheduled breaks on the school calendar.
