Hi, King families!

We are about to embark on another exciting school year.  Our next big step in the International Baccalaureate journey is to have an IB team come and evaluate our progress.  The team will come in October for two days to determine our readiness to be authorized as an IB PYP School. The teachers have spent time this summer learning more strategies to share with students and to plan for an exciting 2019-20 school year.

PTA at King is very active and  would love to have all of our families get involved in some of the events planned during the year.  Sunday, August 18 they will sponsor an ice cream social on the school playground from 3-4 PM. PTA will also have information and sign up sheets during Open House on August 27 and present the new school year budget at the opening meeting on August 29 at 8:30 AM in the cafeteria.  PTA will publish the electronic newsletter, the Courier, each month. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter and refer to it often for special events and activities.

As you prepare for the next school year and start shopping for back to school items please keep this in mind: “United Way of Summit County has served the children of Akron for nearly 100 years. With our Bold Goals for 2025, we are working with Akron Public Schools to ensure that every student has what he or she needs to succeed in the classroom and beyond. Thanks to the generous United Way volunteers and donors who participated in United Way’s Stuff the Bus school supplies every student in our school will receive a free backpack full of school supplies. Each backpack will contain: 1 backpack, 10 pencils, 10 pens,2 large erasers ,2 pack of crayons ,4 folders,2 glue sticks ,1 pack of wide ruled notebook paper or 2 spiral notebooks, 1 pencil case or school box.”   The backpacks with the items included will be distributed to students on September 4!

I look forward to working with all of our families this year!
