Greetings King IB Family,

To say this has been one crazy school year would be a monumental understatement! When we left for Spring Break on March 13, I don’t think any of us would have predicted that this is how the school year would have ended. I know we will all have our own unique experiences and stories from this time in our life that we will now carry with us for the rest of our lives. As strange as it may sound, remember these moments. They will have undoubtedly leave a lasting mark on your life.

I am so incredibly proud of all of you. Students, you have persevered through some challenging times and risen up to those challenges, as you always do. Our teachers had to reinvent their teaching strategies and approaches over night.  And as teachers always do, they adapted and did so quickly. Our parents have stepped into new roles in the home as they’ve had to be come tutors, time managers, counselors, cafeteria managers, and so much more. Through all of this, you have proven we are capable of so much more than we sometimes give ourselves credit for. 

I’m hopeful that we will be able to return to a more normal way of school for the 2020/21 school year. Please stay tuned throughout the summer. If and when we have new information to share, we will do so. 

As always, please stay safe and be well.

Mr. Finch

Happy Wednesday to our King IB Family,

It is hard to believe that we haven’t been together since March 13 and we have been doing E-Learning for 5 weeks!  We are so close to finishing the semester. Keep working hard and finish strong!  We miss having you all on campus!

It’s been great seeing those of you who have driven by the school to get locker contents, yearbooks, cap and gown, refunds, and whatever other things you may have needed.  Keep watching for different schedules.  We will offer another date to pick up locker contents.  Additionally, many still have books to return, laptops to check back in, and other school owned items that need to be returned.

I’m sure if you’re like most, you’ve watched a lot of movies and binged a few too many tv series.  Let me throw an idea out there to you.  I challenge journal for just a few minutes each day what is going on in the world right now and how you’ve been processing it.  No matter what, 30 years from now, it will be a remarkable story to read back through and to share with your children!

Be well and stay safe.

Mr. Finch

Greetings King IB!

I hope and trust all are well and safe.  We’ve had one of our busier weeks in a while here at King High School.  On Tuesday, most of our seniors drove through the front of school to pick up their cap and gown, yearbook, IB stole, and various other things. It was so good to see many of you!

Please be on the lookout for communication when students can come by to pick of certain items. We know that many of you have contents in your lockers.  Mrs. Castelli is putting together a schedule for when those items can be picked up.  Many of you all have purchased yearbooks that you are excited to get. We also know that some are expecting reimbursements for various canceled events.  Please be patient as we work on schedules to get these items to you.  Our goal is to it quickly, but safely.

A special note to my Seniors:

As you have likely already heard, we have canceled this years IB Banquet. While we are sad to not be able to celebrate with you, we know that the safety of all is what’s most important.  IB Connection is working to get the monies paid reimbursed.  Additionally, with the new timeline for graduation, we are planning something that would allow us to have 1 final event for the King IB class of 2020. Once we have more details and feel more confident that we will be able to have the event, we will share more details.  What I will tell you is that the date would be July 14 during the evening.  This is day before graduation.  We are cautiously optimistic about this event and hope to share one more fun experience with you all.

I want to encourage both students and parents to keep working hard. Students you have adapted well to these unforeseen changes.  Please stay diligent from now until the end of the school year.  Parents, kudos to you! You’ve had to step up in a major way to assist your students in their learning. Keep up the great work!

Stay safe and be well.

Mr. Finch
