The King Parents’ Association (PA) is a dynamic organization that plays a vital role in our School community. The organization depends and thrives on the active participation of parent volunteers who sponsor a variety of projects and programs designed to support King's Mission by:
- Improving and enhancing the educational experience of the students
- Helping create a spirit of community
- Facilitating communication
- Supporting administrative and Faculty needs
The PA serves as a general advocate for the parent body and facilitates communication between parents and the School through general membership meetings. The PA will hold its General Meetings for all members three times per year in September, January and May.
The Parents' Association opened their Speaker Series with Dr. Jessica Hoffman presenting 'Building Skills for Life: An Emotions Matter Mindset to Parenting" in late October. Emotions impact decision making, relationships, academic performance and everyday success. Dr. Hoffman provides specific strategies to use with children to promote emotional well being.
Earlier this week, the PA King Inclusion and Diversity Committee (KInD) sponsored a breakfast meeting with Head of School Karen Eshoo, who offered insight about the definitions of diversity, inclusion, and equity.
The King campus was busting with excitement last weekend as alumni, parents, students, staffulty, and visiting athletes enjoyed three days of activities, athletics, and reconnecting during Homecoming 2018.
The Parents' Association had a productive and successful year thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers! Thank you to our very dedicated PA board: Celeste Marsh, Kim Alexander, Yvette Nugent, Ilinca Creveling and Mi-Sun Freeman.
Congratulations to the Class of 2018 who were admitted to some of the country's top colleges and universities. 90% of the class were admitted to a Phi Beta Kappa college or university and 84% were admitted to a school in the top two tiers of selectivity in Barron's. The class also received over $4 million in unsolicited merit scholarships that accompanied their college acceptance letters.
