A Look At Our Week
- Reading & Spelling--Invasion From Mars --Vocab, Comprehension and Spelling test on Friday.
- Math--Chapter 2--Multiplication Lessons 2.6-2.10
- Science--Animal Organ Systems
The staff of our school district had the privilege of hearing Mr. Craig Boykin speak at our back to school assembly in August. Mr. Boykin's story is one of inspiration and determination. He was a young man who chose not to succumb to the hardships he had encountered throughout his young life. Through determination he has overcome his cultural poverty and has risen to be a top speaker of how to help youth overcome barriers placed in their lives.
Our district has been provided the opportunity to have Mr. Boykin come back in October and speak to our students, parents, and community members. Please plan to attend this special event on Thursday, October 4th at 6:00p.m. in the KHS auditorium. I have attached a link for more information to Mr. Boykin's story and mission. https://craigboykin.com/ .
