Message from Principal Yung: January 8, 2016

Dear King Families,

Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful and restful winter break. Thank you for your support and patience as we acclimate to our new building. I know that moving to a new location takes quite a bit of work as teachers and parents, but the rewards for our students are incredible! It has been heartwarming to see so many students smile as they walk in our corridors and share their favorite part of the new building. Our students and teachers are really excited and there is so much to learn about this special building.

Please note that our annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Assembly will be held on Friday, January 15th. Families are welcome to sit in the upper balcony, accessible on the second floor, after student drop-off. The assembly will last from 8:30AM to 10AM. Please remember that no food or drinks will be allowed in the auditorium.

The celebration continues that evening when we host storyteller and performer Valerie Stevens on the evening of January 15th. The schedule for the evening includes tours of the school from 5 - 5:30PM, the feature performance from 5:30 - 6:10PM, and a potluck dinner from 6:10 - 7PM. Please use the Magee Street entrance for this event. We ask that you keep your child with you throughout the evening (there is no childcare available). Please bring a nut-free dish to share for the potluck. If you have questions, please call Marguerite at 617.349.6454.

Arrival & Dismissal Reminder
Please note that morning arrival is through the Magee Street entrance until 7:55AM. Students are to enter and proceed directly to the cafeteria or gymnasium. If you wish to join your child for breakfast, we ask that you say your goodbyes in the cafeteria when teachers arrive to pick up their students. Afternoon pick-up is outside our Main Entrance on Putnam Avenue or inside the main lobby during inclement weather.

We look forward to next week’s events and celebration of community as we honor our school’s namesake in our beautiful new school.

Yours truly,

Gerald Yung
