EAST KNOX WELCOMES BACK ALL STUDENTS, STAFF, AND FAMILIES AS WE DIVE INTO 2016 - IT IS GOING TO BE A GREAT YEAR!!
Welcome back Cougars!
A regular school schedule resumes on Tuesday, January 5th at 7:30 a.m. We hope you all enjoyed your time off and are ready to learn!! Our focus, as it has been all year, is on WRITING. At East Knox we READ about it, THINK about it, TALK about it, and WRITE about it. To be good writers, you need to be good readers -- administration and teachers encourage 20 minutes of reading every night. Some things to look forward to this first month back:
*90 Chromebooks have been purchased and will be in use when we get back from break. Teachers are being trained on them after school on Tuesday, January 5th and they will be in then hands of students immediately afterwards.
*Two second grade classes (Linebarger & Baggett) will take their field trip to Safety City on Wednesday, January 6th; the other two classes (Winegardner & Burleson) will go Monday, February 1st.
*Friday, January 8th parents and community members are welcome to attend our FIRST SEMESTER HONORS ASSEMBLY. Grades 3-5 will be at 8 am, PreK-2 will be at 9 a.m.
*Universal Screening (STAR testing) will begin the week of January 11th and continue for two weeks. These are benchmarks in reading and math for all students K-5.
*Tuesday, January 12th report cards will be sent home
