High School “Catch-Up” Day

This week marks the halfway point for the final semester of the 19-20 school year. This will certainly be a year none of us will forget, and we are so intensely proud of the work our students and faculty have put in to creating a thriving remote learning environment. We all want to be together on campus, but it has been amazing to watch rich teaching and learning continue in each of our homes!
In order to make sure students are ready for the final academic stretch, Thursday, May 21st will be “Catch-Up Day”. This is not a “free” day, but will have the following expectations:

  • Students attend 1st block at 8:45 for ASB elections.  Attendance will be taken.
  • If teachers request a meeting with students, it is expected they will attend.
  • If a student receives a D or F on their progress report (sent 5/20) they will meet with the teacher during their scheduled block.
  • If a student has questions, concerns, or needs clarification on content they will meet with the teacher during the scheduled block.
  • Students will use this time to catch up on missing work, re-take tests (prearranged and per class policy), complete homework and projects, etc.

Apply to be a King’s CyberKnight!

King’s High School, now is your time to become a CyberKnight! The 2020-21 recruitment process has begun and we are excited to meet anyone who chooses to apply. The 4911 CyberKnights are a part of the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), meaning we have the opportunity to work with one another to solve a common problem, by building a robot. FRC combines STEM and sports-like competition to make a fun and challenging experience for all.

However, being a CyberKnight, is far more than building high performing robots. It is also about being a part of the team in terms of contribution and character. On Team 4911, we offer professional experiences that help with future careers and personal growth. It is not only a great way to get involved in the school, but practice career concentration in fields of mechanical engineering, software design, marketing, public relations, and so much more.

The CyberKnights live out the team mantra, “tomorrow’s leaders today,” which emphasizes the time and effort that we invest in this program and team for the future. Okay, quick break; if you have read this far—congratulations! Now to prove that you have put in the effort to read this, and apply for the team, write three fun facts about yourself in the comments section of the application so we can get to know you better. Being on the CyberKnights opens the door to various career options such as business, computer science, marketing, graphic design, mechanical and electrical engineering, event planning, and computer-aided design.

This year, due to remote education, we have had to change our application system. We turned our usual paper application into an easy-to-access google form. From here on out the recruitment process will be online; this includes interview sign ups, interviews, and introduction to the team.

Now why are you still reading? Your first step to becoming a CyberKnight is one click away!
