Dear families, King Middle School now has a dedicated MakerSpace to expose students to a wide range of STEM-related activities. STEM is an abbreviation for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. We have fun, interactive ways for 6th graders and 7th/8th graders to get more familiar with a broad range of applied sciences. We are also offering after-school MakerSpace through LEARNS. We are looking for some items to equip and fill out our MakerSpace:

  • Architectural Building Models (paper or cardboard creations to show students)

  • Digital or Analog Oscilloscopes

  • Unused Raspberry Pi 3 or 4, Arduinos, or other "robot kits"

  • Remote-control cars or planes

  • RC servo motors or RC transmitter/receivers

Ron Chung Makerspace Instructional Specialist King Middle School Seeking recycled items for art projects Hello! I am collecting items for future/upcoming art projects. If you have any of these things and want to get rid of them, please leave them in the office in a bag labelled with my name (MS PAIGE) Medium or small, sturdy boxes - like the boxes that iphones and other electronics come in or Altoid tins, cigar boxes etc. No cereal boxes or kleenex boxes - they need to be a bit more substantial. Laundry detergent bottles - especially big, bright colorful ones, like Tide. The ones that you may feel guilty using up and tossing into the recycling bin (I do!) Colorful lids from plastic drink containers and other brightly colored plastic items, such as kitchenware, lightweight plastic toys. Also - if you have any coloring/art activity books at home that you no longer use, I would love to use those too. Thank you! Louise Paige King Art Teacher Battle of the Books Battle of the Books meets in the Library during Advisory on Thursdays. Let your Advisory teacher know you will be coming to the library so that you are marked present, then come on up and learn more about the book club where you work with your teammates to read and understand a variety of books in preparation for the battle in the spring between King, Longfellow and Willard Middle Schools. This is a super-fun way to complete the 30-book challenge, hang out with friends, and read some really great books. -- Tom Holmes Teacher Librarian King Middle School 1781 Rose Street Berkeley, CA 94703 Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School 1781 Rose Street Berkeley, CA 94703 510-644-6280
