Mark your calendars – King 2018 – 2019 PTO Meetings!

Calling all parents!  The first PTO  meeting is Monday, September 17th at 6:30 pm in the Media Center.

Parents and Teachers (the “P” and “T” in PTO) meet monthly to discuss important school issues.  You can meet other parents and learn how the PTO supports the classrooms, field trips, and extra-curricular activities.

Child care will be provided by KingCare for school aged children during the PTO meeting.

Future PTO meetings for the year will be (in the Media Center).  Please note that we have changed it up this year to try to accommodate more parents and added a few mornings meetings.  We hope to see some new faces this year!

Interested in Math Club?

King School Math Club

Hello 1st through 5th grade parents,

The Math Club is focused on building problem-solving skills and reinforcing math concepts.  Students will apply math concepts that they have already learned at school to solving a wide variety of problems.  We foster enthusiasm in math, help students build good work habit, and develop their creativity in problem solving. Any 1st to 5th grade student who enjoys math and seeks a challenge is welcome. Although there is no minimum requirement of math proficiency, the student must be able to focus and engage in math problem solving for our one-hour class.

Class format:

The Math club will meet every week, at King School, starting mid-October. The day and time will be finalized depending on what works for majority of the coaches.

Volunteer parents will coach the kids using a variety of instruction formats, including guided discussion, small group work, informal contests, and other supplemental teaching methods.

Expectations for parents:

  • Drop off/pick up kids promptly
  • Parent volunteering is required. Parents will need to volunteer to coach, provide in class assistance to monitor student behavior during classes, make copies of the class materials, etc.

Competition:

Math Kangaroo: This is an annual mathematical competition for students in grades 1 to 12. Top scorers, both at the state level and nationally, are awarded special prizes. Several King school students received awards last year. More details about the competition can be obtained from their website: www.mathkangaroo.org

  • March  21st, 2019 for 1st to 5th graders.  Anyone in the club is welcome, but not required to participate.
  • There is a $20 fee for contest registration. Each registered student gets a T-shirt, a participation certificate and a special memento.
  • Format: 24-30 multiple-choice questions in 75 minutes.  

Please sign-up before September 24th:

Important Note: We currently do not have sufficient volunteers, across all grades, to coach the students. So please indicate in the registration form if you are available to coach. We will not be able to offer these sessions to grades, which do not have sufficient parent coaches.

Have questions? Email to:

Drop Off and Pick Up at King: An Essential Guide

Check out our  Drop-off and Pick-up Guide!!!

Check out these fliers to ensure the safety of our children and to help traffic move through the circle quickly, including the AAPS buses.

It is critical that each and every parent (or caregiver) follow these instructions.

The five key pointers are:

1. Right in, right out, go slowly – you can ONLY turn right into the drop off circle from 8:30 am – 9:00 am and 3:45 pm – 4:15 pm.

2. There is only one way to drive through the circle – obey the “do not enter sign.”

3. Children exit the car on the curb side (passenger side, or right side) ONLY.  No one should ever exit on the left side of the car.  This is very dangerous for the children and the drivers.

4.  Pull up as far as you can – parents should drop off students close to the front doors to allow more cars to pull into the circle area.

5. Do not park and/or leave your car in the drop off circle.  The drop off circle is for drop off and pick up only.

Thank you for helping keep King students safe!
