The flu season is approaching and as we all scramble to get ourselves and our children vaccinated, it is a good time to discuss with our children how fortunate we are to have access to basic medical care and vaccinations.
Each October students at King school participate in the UNICEF fundraiser called "Trick or Treat" for UNICEF.
Donations allow UNICEF to provide clean water, education, vaccinations and medicine to children around the world who need it most. Your child can collect donations in the orange box sent home in the Friday folder and return them to school by November 16.

- Drop-off in the morning can begin at 8:35.
- When in the Drop-off/Pick-up zones, DO NOT get out of your car and DO NOT back your car up. This is not permissible and outside of the policy. If you need to help your child get out of car, you should park on Waldenwood Drive. If you feel you need to back up, please read #4 below.
- Be patient. When there are a lot of cars waiting to drop-off in the morning, slow down, go slowly, and wait your turn. Thanks.

for Education? Box Tops are small logos that appear on General Mills
cereals, Juicy Juice drinks, Ziploc bags and many other items. Once
you start looking for them, or better yet, get your kids to start
looking for them, you will find them everywhere. Start clipping and
saving them because in April 2010, we will have a contest to see which
classroom brings in the most Box Tops. Getting additional Box Tops
from grandparents, neighbors etc is not only fair game, but
encouraged! The winning classroom will get bragging rights and a
party at the end of the contest.
Through the end of October, there is another way to earn up to $50,000
in Box Tops for King. Go to www.thebigclip.com and enter as much as
once a day through October 31. You need to put in an email address,
the school zip code of 48105 and then look for "King Elementary
School" on the drop down menu. You are not required to receive emails
about products unless you opt to. Once you have registered, each time
you go back you only need to enter your email address to earn King
another chance at up to $50,000. Thanks for your support!
