Week 37

Posted by Becky Gracey on 6/2/2023 4:00:00 PM

On Tuesday (6-6), we will help mulch the playground. Please be sure that your child has appropriate clothing and a water bottle.
Movie and Popcorn:
On Wednesday (6-7), we will watch a movie. I am buying an individual bag of original Skinny Pop popcorn for each student. There is a Ticket to Taste in your child's Friday Folder. Please fill it out letting me know if I can give your child a bag of popcorn, or if they will be bringing a snack from home, and return it by Wednesday (6-7). I am not able to give any students a bag of popcorn unless I have a Ticket to Taste stating that it is okay.
Fuller Pool Field Trip:
On Thursday (6-8), we will head to Fuller Pool for a picnic and pool time. The pool has an area that is shallow, a lap pool, a deep end, and a water slide. Students will need to pass a swim test given by the lifeguards to swim in the deep end. Lifeguards will be on duty. We will be gone from King School from 9:30-2:00. Your child needs a lunch, water bottle, swim suit, towel, and change of clothes. I already have permission slips for all students (thanks!) and the entrance fee and bus is being paid for by our PTO (thanks PTO!).
Last Day of School:
Friday (6-9) is our last day of school. It is a half day. We will have a 5th Grade celebration at 9:30. Families are welcome! After the celebration we will be on the playground to sign yearbooks until we head in to line up for our Clap Out! Dismissal will begin right after the Clap Out. Your child only needs to bring a pencil/pen/etc. for yearbook signing and they need to wear their 5th Grade T-shirt that came home with them this past Wednesday.
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.
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
