King Mission Statement
  • From the Principal:

    Welcome new families and returning families!  It’s been great to see familiar faces and nice to meet our new families.  It is our goal to support our families and meet the needs of our students both academically and socially while maintaining safety.

    Our mission statement is KING PRIDE: ONE TEAM, ONE DREAM!  WHERE CHILDREN THINK, LEARN, GROW, AND SUCCEED EVERYDAY.  We are committed to collaborating as a staff to connect, teach, and encourage our students!  We would like to have you as part of our TEAM!  Through positive communication, time spent with us at the school, and commitment to the King Elementary community - Our students will SUCCEED!  

    I would like to extend to you opportunities that allow us to work together and for you to be informed of your child’s education.  Volunteer opportunities are available within the classroom and at the school level.  There are also opportunities to join our PTO and BAAC (Building Accountability Advisory Committee). Please call the front office if interested.
