Message from Principal Gerald Yung
Thank you for a wonderful first day of school. I enjoyed seeing familiar and new students and shared their excitement for the year ahead of us!
Here are a few reminders to help ensure a smooth start:
If you need assistance with bus transportation, please contact Carmen Cohen, School Operations Manager, at 617.349.6564. You can also call Tina Fisher in the Transportation Department at 617.349.6862.
Wednesday Dismissal Time
Please note that dismissal on all Wednesdays is at 1:55PM (including tomorrow). Parent pickup is in the cafeteria (enter through door 5# in the courtyard).
King School Popsicle Party: Change of Date
New Date: Friday, September 11 | 4 - 6PM
Who: All new and returning MLK families
Where: MLK courtyard (school cafeteria in case of rain)
Come meet new and returning MLKing students and parents and learn more about a plan to form a new nonprofit parent group: MLK Friends.
MLK Friends will continue the work of the current parent group: supporting field trips, providing school t-shirts, and helping with the Chinese New Year celebration. As a newly-formed nonprofit group, MLK Friends will also aim to increase fundraising to offer even more enrichment opportunities to the King School community.
We look forward to sharing more about how you can be involved with MLK Friends, and to meeting everyone at the Popsicle Party!
If you have questions, please contact Christina Lively.
Due to the current heat wave, we recommend that students bring a water bottle to school. Our teachers are scheduling additional water breaks and will seek to use cooler spaces when possible.
Finally, please note that I will be in China next week for a special family event. Ms. Cohen, our School Operation Manager, will be the administrator in charge of the building. Our former assistant principal, Ms. Cheryl Haynes, will assist all week to provide additional support. I will return on Monday, September 21st.
