Welcome to the Parent-Teacher Association!
The goal of the King Parent Teacher Association is to positively impact the lives of all King students and their families.
We do this by:
Building and strengthening community ties among King families and between King families, teachers and staff;
Increasing parent and caregiver connections to King school;
Raising funds to support programs and initiatives for student success, and to support the PTA’s in strengthening connections community.
Why Donate to King?
The invaluable gifts of your time and energy are some of the most important ways you can give to King! With a parent population of over 1,500, we are proud that almost a third of our parents sign up to volunteer in some capacity during the year.
King’s PTA budget is over $165,000 raised through the Friends of King fundraising campaign, and events such as the spring Run-a-Thon. We also raise money through small grants. Grant awards vary from year to year.
Some PTA funded programs include
Cooking and gardening teachers for the Edible Schoolyard
Technology support for all school computers
Lifeguards for the swimming program
After school sports
6th Grade Welcome Dinners
7th Grade science programming
8th Grade graduation dance
Parent Education presentations
P.E. equipment (such as basketballs and basketball hoops)
Special science classroom supplies
We are very conscientious in using the funds entrusted to us, adhering to budgeting and accounting practices that ensure PTA monies are secure and accounted for and spent in accordance with the priorities of the school and the parent community.
We welcome your participation as a leader or volunteer and your donations to the Friends of King Campaign. Thank you in advance for your participation at King!
