A Note From Mrs. Braaksma & Mr. Rogers:

KGA Family,

We simply cannot thank you enough for your generosity and support of the inaugural Celebration of Cultures Night! We believe it was truly a spectacular event!

We would be remise if we didn't take time to thank the many people who made it all possible. An event of this size requires many hands and we are SO grateful for our community support.

A huge thank you to:

  • Dr. Adama Sallu, CUSD's Director of Equity & Inclusion
  • The City of Chandler's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Department who so generously provided a $1000 grant to fund the event
  • The professional performers and Perry High School's Indigenous Students Club (all pictured below)
  • Mrs. Griffith and the entire planning committee of staff and parents
  • KGA's incredible teachers and staff
  • KGA's Art Masterpiece Board and its many amazing volunteers
  • KGA's PTO who provided $1000 to support the professional performers
  • KGA's generous families who devoted their time and energy to share their family's culture

Thank you for ALL you do to support Knox Gifted Academy!

Mrs. Braaksma, Principal

Mr. Rogers, Dean of Students
