Principal's Message

Principal Dr. Henry with King Scholars
Hello King Academy Families and Community,
 
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year.  I am honored to serve the King community for the fifth year,  As your principal, my mission is to continue to create a safe and caring environment where everyone - scholars and staff - are successful.  We accomplish this by using our school values to guide us at all times: Integrity, Achievement & Excellence.
 
We encourage our King Scholars to make strong choices every day to ROAR, to be: 
Respectful
Organized and Prepared
Always Safe
Responsible
 
We believe when students demonstrate these expectations, on and off campus, they will be successful in all parts of life.  Because these are so important at King, students will be rewarded with ROAR tickets when we see them making positive choices.  Tickets can be redeemed on a weekly basis for items or experiences.  You can learn more about this under the Student Life tab above.  While you are there, you can read about our rich student engagement offerings, such as clubs and athletics.  
 
I am proud to say we have a remarkable staff.  Our teachers not only provide quality instruction, but they create classrooms where students are respected and valued.  We also have a team of incredible support staff, from our office team to our health office to our instructional assistants.  
 
We continue to create conditions for all scholars to be successful.  It's a team effort for ongoing success.  When students make the right choices and have a positive mindset, they will be successful.  When parents are partners, we are a team that is working together.  Parents, through your support, we will exceed our goals this year.  We ask you partner with us by:
  • Making sure your scholar attends school every day and on time
  • Signing up for AERIES portal to monitor your scholar's grades (contact our office if you need assistance)
  • Supporting our school expectations
  • Attend progress report pick up or meetings for your scholar
  • Talk to your scholar about having friends and social circles who are positive influences
We have shown some great improvement over the last few years and through partnership with staff, students and parents, we will continue to move Forward, Together!  
 
Please continue to look around our website to learn more about our school. We invite you to follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/kingacademylions or Instagram @KingAcademyLions for pictures of our daily work or school updates.  
 
In Partnership,
