School and Youth Programs. Students are donating their coins, dollars, etc. for the next 3 weeks, March 16- April 3, to help find breakthrough therapies to save the lives of blood cancer patients. This gives the students a unique experience by making a difference through teamwork---working together to aid thousands of children and adults in the fight against blood cancers like leukemia. I am sure you may know someone who has been affected by some form of cancer. Our goal this year is $ 2015.00. We would appreciate your support. Feel free to contribute to our school by logging on to our school's exclusive Pasta for Pennies webpage and make a donation. (http://va.dojiggy.com/ng/index.cfm/13860/regPages/pledge/KingQueenElementarySchool) Or you can come by the school to donate to this worthy cause. If you have any questions please contact Ms. Pia Holmes, School Counselor. Thank you for your support in helping the students at KQES to make a difference in someone’s life.
Save the Date! Don’t forget that, Tuesday March 31, 2015 will be the King and Queen Arts Festival at the Marriott Library in King and Queen County. Students from all three schools will have their art work displayed for competition. There will be coral music from the elementary schools and the high school will offer instrumentals from two different groups. The parent/teacher organizations from all three schools will be selling refreshments to benefit their organizations and a portion will be donated to the Arts programs at all three schools. Please save this date to encourage and support the Arts in King and Queen County Public Schools.
