TESTING NEW CLASSROOM FURNITURE
King David is looking to replace much of our furniture and equipment. It has done well to last for 17 years with all the wear and tear typical teenager use entails. We also have to completely furnish our new learning spaces being built this Spring courtesy of the Diamond Foundation.

As part of “King David 2.0”, students were asked to add their input about classroom furniture. Near the front office there is a display of potential options for new student desks and chairs. Students have been invited to sample each of the three chairs and three desks and then share opinions by scanning a QR code and completing a quick survey. So far, nearly 100 students have added their voice and views on the desk and chair options. The display will be up for another week so there’s still time for students to participate.
SHAKESPEAREAN DRAMA FILLS THE HALLWAYS
Ms. Ripley’s Composition 11 class worked very creatively to complete their final Video Play assignments for Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” this past week. In groups, students worked to translate the original play into modern scripts with a twist before filming their scenes all around the school. With new takes on characters, settings, and styles, these video plays are sure to make for an incredible Shakespearean Film Festival! 
LUNCHTIME IN THE MUSIC ROOM
“Lunchtime in the Music Room looks a lot like a Music 10 class,” says Music teacher, Johnny Seguin. Pictured above: Zach Fisher, Josh Malowicki, Luca Jeffery, Netta Mizrahi, Max Forman, and Jonathan Estok utilize the time to relax and practice their skills.
ALUMNUS IN THE CLASSROOM!
We are always delighted by the strong connection our alumni still feel to King David. This week, Ma’ayan Fadida, Class of 2016, joined us as a TOC! Ma’ayan attended MacMaster University where she completed her undergraduate Life Sciences degree and she is currently at UBC completing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
