King Lions Behavioral Expectations

Last month, King MS adopted new Behavioral Expectations (with input through our Magnets and SDM). There will be activities such as Poster Contests, Door Decorating Contests, and input from student groups such as Leadership, Peer Mediators, and GSA, etc to flesh out what this looks like in the day to day.


King Lions are Respectful.

I treat others the way I want to be treated.

I respect laws, rules, and school authority.

I treat people fairly and respect their rights.

I respect private and public property.


King Lions are Responsible.

I take responsibility for my actions.

I choose how I respond to others.

I return what I borrow.


King Lions are Appreciative of Differences.

I look for the good in others.

I respect each other’s right to be different.

I see cultural diversity as an opportunity for learning.


King Lions are Life-Long Learners.

I come to school prepared to learn.

I give my best in everything I do.

I am open and alert to solutions.


New Design Lab – Work in Progress…

Parents, teachers, and students came together on the last Friday of the holiday break to apply some elbow grease to our upcoming Design Lab. These volunteers painted, sawed, hung, and assembled throughout the morning, making strides in creating our dream lab. Check out the hard work of these volunteers. Other work days are needed–stay tuned for your opportunity to help our magnet build this amazing makers’ space.


King Social @ Silver Lake Wine – 12/1/17

THANK YOU for a great wine tasting get-together!

It is a really nice evening of camaraderie and cheers among King friends, as well as a great pretext to taste three selections of wine, along with bread, cheese, and olives.

Thanks to Silver Lake Wine for hosting and giving back part of the ticket sales to our school!


Rainbow Bake Sale – Oct. 2017

Many volunteers manning the tables were current King families or King alumni. Some of the volunteer students are part of the Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) at T.S. King. At the GSA, all students are welcome to discuss LGBT issues and launch anti-bullying campaigns throughout the school.


King Social @ Mixed Co – 11/3/17

A huge THANK YOU to Mixed Co for a fabulous evening!

Almost 50 families (yes that’s over 150 proud King Lions!) mixed and mingled over artisanal pizzas and happy hour beverages at Mixed Co on Friday Nov 3, raising over $2,000 for our school (Mixed Co gave 100% of the ticket sales to King!). Special thanks to King parents Linsday Kennedy (owner of Mixed Co) for hosting and Sara Stein for the SoLA raffle bundle.
