Back-to-School Night

Thursday evening, September 12th, 2019, King will hold its annual Back-to-School Night!


For any parents or guardians who have not attended, this is a great way to learn about your child’s school day.  You will visit your child’s classrooms, meet their teachers, and learn the “geography” of the school as you move from class to class.  At the beginning and end of the night, Principal Janet Levenson will deliver her annual address to parents in the King Auditorium. For the record, Janet gives a good talk!


PTA will be selling pizza and salad beforehand, and serving cookies, fruit, and coffee afterward in the Main Courtyard. Please come as early as you can and stay for awhile afterward to see old friends and meet new King families. We have many new families whom we hope you will welcome and encourage to get involved in the school community.

Principal Levenson looks forward to addressing the whole school community at pm in the auditorium. She will be sharing our priorities for the year, some data on how we are doing as a school, and some information all parents will want to know about supporting their students this year.


Students will bring home a schedule of their classes for their parents. Parents move through the schedule in ten-minute blocks for each class. Teachers will greet parents and give a brief overview of their plans for the year and expectations for the class.


The schedule for the evening looks like this —
5:30 – 6:15 – Light dinner (pizza and salad) for purchase – Main Courtyard
6:15 – 6:35 – Principal Janet Levenson’s Address, Welcome & Remarks – Auditorium
6:25 – 6:35 – Zero Period Classroom Visits (plan to attend second Principal’s Address – see below)
6:40 – 8:25 – Classroom Visits
8:30 – 8:45 – Principal’s Address – Repeat of Earlier Presentation – Auditorium


The Classroom Visit schedule will run as follows —
Zero Period:  6:25-to-6:35
Period One:  6:40-to-7:00
Period Two:  7:05-to-7:15
Period Three:  7:20-to-7:30
Period Four:  7:35-to-7:45
Period Five: 7:50-to-8:00
Period Six:  8:05-to-8:15
Period Seven: 8:15-to-8:25

NOTE:While we are eager to see as many parents attend as possible, we ask you to please try to attend without your kids.  Too many students tonight will strain seating and our ability move parents from classroom to classroom.  If you just can’t find coverage and want to attend, please do come and maintain reasonable supervision of your child.


We look forward to seeing you for this enjoyable and informative evening!
