What We Do

King Elementary School offers an Early Reading First program for Pre-Kindergarten and Reading First for Kindergarten - 3rd grade students focusing on building strong reading and literacy skills. King School had the first "I Have a Dream" program in Oregon. We offer a Friends of Children program in which additional support services are provided to students that may need extra assistance and the SMART (Start Making A Reader Today) reading program. We also offer the Touchstone Program which provides services to children and their families in a joint effort to help students perform well and stay in school as well as a school based therapist at the Morrison Center.

Opportunities for service with us

Assist with theater, music, African dance and outdoor activities, or tutor math or writing Monday through Thursday 3-5:30pm. Short or long-term hours available. Volunteer to read to children in the SMART program Mondays and Wednesdays during school hours-this requires a 6 month commitment.
