End-of-the-Year Slideshow Help:
Last week, I shared slides with your child for our end-of-the-year slideshow on Schoology. Please help them to find a picture of when they were young and a recent picture for them to add to their slide. Slides are due next Friday (5-26).
Message from the front office:
Image that says "Fight the bite. Check for ticks after being outside. Use insect repellent. Wear long sleeves, shoes, and socks when outdoors. Prevent mosquitoes from getting inside your home or breeding by your home." with WCHD logo.
As the weather warms up, take steps to prevent tick and mosquito bites while enjoying the outdoors! Ticks can be active when the weather is above 40⁰F and mosquitoes are just starting to be active.

“The best way to avoid mosquito- and tick-borne illnesses is to prevent bites,” says Kristen Schweighoefer, MPH, RS, environmental health director for the Health Department.

“Tick season is already here. If any community member finds a tick attached to their body, they should remove it right away and monitor their health. If any symptoms like a fever, rash, or muscle or joint aches develop, contact a medical provider immediately.”

Read about how to prevent bites and see local data on vector-borne diseases in our latest press release.
NEW Message from the Garden Committee:

King Learning Garden 2023 Summer Help

It is that time of year where we are thinking about the school year coming to a close, BUT...the garden is still growing!  We are hoping that you will consider adopting the garden for a week or more this summer.  Our students and families have learned, cared, loved, and spent time taking care of the King Learning Garden during the school year.  Without your help and the help of others, the garden can't grow over the summer. This involves weeding, watering and harvesting during your week. 

We will be sending out volunteer information on step by step directions of how to care for the garden if you sign up!  This year we are planting a lot!  So we are hoping for some extra help (and there might be fresh goodies to take home and enjoy too).  SUMMER 2023 VOLUNTEER SIGN UP CLICK HERE FOR SUMMER 2023 KLG VOLUNTEER

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!
