The Kings Local School District is dedicated to strengthening the family-school-community partnership as a part of the District's #KingsStrong Strategic Plan - Relate. Create. Innovate. This year, the District is bringing relevant, meaningful, and thought-provoking topics to a community forum for the purpose of promoting student well-being, academic success, and community support.
 
The Kings Community Learning Series engages a variety of presenters to help our community become proactive and informed about topics affecting today’s families. These sessions will provide knowledge and practices that can help parents, educators, and members of the community work together to enhance and actively support Kings students.
 
In October, we will offer two presentations.The first presentation is on October 9 about Hope Squad, a peer-to-peer suicide program. Dr. Greg Hudnall, Founder and CEO of Hope Squad will share what inspired him to start Hope Squad in Utah, and the importance of implementing Hope Squads in schools around the country.  The presentation will take 
place in the Kings High School Auditorium at 7:00 p.m.
 
The next Community Learning Series will address Vaping and JUULing in a presentation called, "Everything You Want to Know About Vaping."
