Join the fun on Walk and Roll to School Day – October 4th
Students, parents, and teachers of King are invited to join in for International Walk & Roll to School Day on Wednesday morning, October 4th. This is a great opportunity to celebrate our health, the environment, and our school spirit.  We’re encouraging every student to participate with small prizes and a school-wide mode chart to see how we all get to school.

Students, if you live nearby walk, skate, scooter, or bike to school. If you live farther away:

  • Take the bus and walk from the bus stop
  • Carpool with another family: Spare the environment, reduce morning stress, connect with other families who live in your neighborhood.
  • If you drive, get dropped off a few blocks away and walk the rest of the way (counts as walking on the mode chart!)

Be a Writer Coach for King Students
Coach a student – empower the voices of the future! Volunteers are needed to coach King students on critical thinking and writing skills so that they might succeed in school and the workplace. Anyone can be a volunteer coach - if you enjoy working
with young people and want the best for them, then investing your time as a coach with WriterCoach Connection is for you! The volunteer commitment is 1-2 hours during the
school day, 2-4 times a month. Come to an
orientation to learn more about the program prior to signing up for one of our trainings, where we’ll give you the strategies and skills to be an excellent coach.

New dates are added regularly but get in soon – coaching starts in October.
King coaching will be on certain Tuesdays and Thursdays from October through May.  There are seven teams of volunteers, and each team will generally work with two classes for a total of 18 dates, averaging 2-3 times a month.
Even if you can’t make it work with your schedule, please take a moment to think about someone else you know–a friend, a neighbor, or a relative– who might find this a fulfilling way to spend his or her time and copy/paste this text to them.

Because kids write our future.
