Silent Auction to keep me wearing Maize and Blue!
I have planned to wear my Maize and Blue the day of the Ice Cream
Social! This is a perfect time because not only can I wear my colors
but everyone else can too! Yes, that's right! Even the OSU fans in
the King Community can wear the colors of Michigan. It only seems
fitting since they didn't bid enough at the auction to put me in
Scarlet and Grey. Don't you agree?

Dear M. L. King Kindergarten Parent,
For the 2010-11 school year, King School will have one half-day kindergarten class which will be an AM session. Exact times for the section have not yet been set; however, last year the AM section met from 8:48 - 11:54.
Some families requested the PM half-day kindergarten section for the 2010-11 school year, but that section will not be offered next year.
I also want to remind families that we have expanded the opportunities for a whole day kindergarten experience next year by offering two Extended Day Option (EDO) classes. EDO classes meet in the AM for academics and the PM is tuition based day-care. It is a nice option for working families who need to have children involved all day long. As of this writing, there are eight spots open for EDO next year. If you are interested (or you know a family who may be interested), please sign up at the Rec and Ed department. Rec and Ed is located at 1515 S. Seventh.
If you have any questions, please call us at 994-1940.

The Silent Auction is now over, and it was a GREAT success and a GREAT time! I'm not sure about how much money was actually raised for King School, but I will post it on the King website as soon as I know.
Thank you to all of the families who came tonight to spend their hard earned dollars to support our school. You are a wonderfully supportive community!
While I'm writing this several moms and dads are sweeping floors, stacking tables, counting charge slips, organizing bid sheets, and doing everything else that needs to be done to finish a great Silent Auction fundraiser! A HUGE thanks goes to all of the volunteers. This night couldn't have happened without your work and your selflessness. As a community we owe you a huge debt of gratitude. I want to personally thank Alena Stocking for all of her effort and organization of this event. You've been wonderful!
I also want the King community to know how much the King staff appreciates the support of our PTO! The funding the PTO gives towards King School classrooms and grade level field trips makes a HUGE positive impact each year.
Again, thanks to everyone who came out tonight. Have a great weekend! I can't wait for the Ice Cream Social!

Unfortunately, you under-estimate the loyalty of the OSU fan base.
The King-OSU contingent has been steadily organizing over the past two
weeks and has gotten in contact with Mr. Jeffrey Scott, principal of
an elementary school in Columbus, Ohio (I cannot divulge which school
on conditions of anonymity) who agreed to help us with our efforts.
This unnamed school went viral with our plea - sending out numerous
emails, and has helped collect quite a few checks. Of course, this
does not surprise me.
In Mr. Scott's email to me, he indicated that he mailed off the
envelope containing these checks on Tuesday, so this should arrive in
today's mail. I have promised him we will forward a picture of you,
donning the lovely scarlet and gray jersey with smile intact, so that
he can share this with his elementary school. I think you will find
the colors suit you much better than maize and blue.

Dear MLK Families,
If you are a University of Michigan fan, graduate, or supporter, I want to make you aware of something disturbing that is happening at King School. CLICK HERE.
This is obviously unacceptable, so we need to get organized before the Silent Auction this Friday at 6 PM. CLICK HERE to show your support!

· 4 packages – Southeast, Southwest, Florida and Midwest
· Packages are for 8 days and 7 nights for studio or one-bedroom accommodations
o Upgrades are available for a cost to Horizon for more bedrooms
· These packages feature resorts such as Westin, Radisson, and Wyndam – in addition to many other independent options. I think of these as similar to a timeshare you might visit or accommodations you might find while looking for extended stay options. They are like a mini-apartment where you would stay for a week.
· Options are found online by looking at www.rci.com. Click on the resort directory to look around. There are 1,637 options around the country – and many in each of the item categories.
· If you win a particular package – you would go online – look at options and then call to check availability.
· You must book 90 days in advance and these must be used within a year.
· I think these are a GREAT option if you like to be out of a hotel, in your own space with a kitchen, pool, etc. – for a vacation.
· One is Royal Carribean – one is Carnival – Royal Carribean also leaves from California – this is a catalog correction.
· These are 5-day, 4-night cruises, basic cabin rooms, upgrades available for a price.
· If you are the winner of this item you will call Horizon to see about availability.
· Must book 90 days in advance.
· Must get yourself to the port of call.
· Expires in one year.

This can only be accomplished by using the instructions and passwords provided on the green letter titled "Important News." If you cannot locate this letter, please email me and I will send another copy home.
Unfortunately, the school and district cannot supply technical support should you encounter problems with this process, but it has been tested in many homes and it seems to work well. Keyboarding skills are so very important to this generation of children, and we're happy that we can provide you with a way to support their progress at home. And the bonus is: the kids love it!
Thanks, Ann O'Keefe
