Dear King Families,
On behalf of the teachers, staff and administrators, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Middle Grade School. King Middle School educates approximately 550 students – in third through sixth grades in Kankakee School District 111. King has a dedicated team who share the belief that every child can succeed.
It is my pleasure to serve you as the school leader. I look forward to working with each of you this school year. At King we believe in data driven decisions, collaborative relationships, and two way communication between home and school. It is our goal to engage our students in learning that will facilitate higher-ordered critical thinking skills, enhance comprehension and vocabulary, and increasing student achievement.

Parents it is our hope that you are involved in all of the activities that we will provide for our King Families. I am excited about this school year and look forward to partnering with each of you. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. We have an open-door policy and we are willing to problem solve with you if the need arises.
