Campus Hit by Vandals Again

On March 9, 2012, the first day of our Spring Break, the King office staff was rudely greeted by graffiti on our walls, hallways, and mural. This is the second incidence of vandalism to our campus this school year. A similar occurence happened on 11/9/11.

With the help of the police department, we hope to identify the criminals soon. The hard work of clean-up and restoration already has begun. Although our students will return to a cleaned campus, they will be shown pictures and videos via our morning bulletin upon their return. They need to see and feel the violation that was done to their "home."

Please share this incident with your children and family. We are asking students, parents, and community members to report any information about this incident to Crimestoppers, 955-8300 or *CRIME on a cell phone.

King Celebrates Dr. Seuss' Birthday with a Teacher Read-Aloud

Ms. Bellinger salutes Dr. Seuss
King teachers took time in their day to do some "old-fashioned" read-alouds with our students. We often think of reading to children as an elementary school activity, but our intermediate students are very much "young at heart" and enjoyed a day of listening to spooky, funny and inspiring stories. Reading together is a great family activity. Read to your child, even if they are 13 years old. It will bring back memories!
Ms. Chan kept them in their seats with "The Lightening Thief."

Ms. Schmeding reads from her new "favorite " book, "My Name is Mina"

Ms. Baldovi kept the students laughing with stories written by her former students.
Ms. Nari shares a lesson from "The Butter Battle"

Mr. Pettit scares the kids with spooky tales
Ms. Staton tells the "Real Story of the 3 Little Pigs"
Mr. Hesia shares his love of reading with "The Hunger Games"
