Week 32

Posted by Becky Gracey on 4/28/2023

No School Day:
There is no school Tuesday (5-2).
M-Step/NWEA Testing
Testing will continue next week through May. Dates are on the calendar. Please look at the dates and try to avoid scheduling appointments, etc. during those times. Students will need a working pair of headphones. I have checked with everyone, and they all have a working set. They should not bring any electronic devices (other than their computer) to school. Please keep computer mouses, electronic watches, etc. at home on testing days so that they are secure during testing times when they cannot be in the classroom. 
5th Grade End-of-the-Year Packet:
There is a packet in your child's Friday Folder today (4-28) which outlines all of the events we have from now until the end of the school year. It also includes 4 permission slips which need to be filled out, signed, and returned ASAP, 2 health letters, and links for volunteer opportunities.
Transition Day Field Trip:
Transition Day is on Friday (5-5). See the packet mentioned below and calendar for more information.
T-Shirt Ordering:
The PTO is generously giving us funds to buy a class t-shirt for all of our 5th Graders! We need to collect t-shirt sizes ASAP so that we can get the t-shirts printed. Please click on the like below to fill out a form indicating your child's t-shirt size by May 1st. Thanks to everyone who already filled out the form!
Message from the Garden Committee:
The King Learning Garden is seeking a team of garden coordinators for 2023-2024 growing seasons. 

Take a look at our volunteer opportunities to see which one fits your schedule. We appreciate all forms of information volunteer support and are open to your ideas!

The KLG is a community led organization made up of committed volunteers who believe in the profound importance of teaching school children to garden and the far-reaching value of adding a gardening curriculum to our schools.

Message from Mrs. Burrill:

King Library Books Due by Friday, June 2!

The last week students can borrow King library books is May 22-26.  All books are due by Friday, June 2. Overdue notices will be sent weekly via email until the end of the school year.

If a book is damaged/lost, please let me know so it can be marked accordingly in our catalog. A donated book in good condition or a new replacement copy is accepted as we don’t charge late fines or take payments.

Thank you!
