Our PTO had each staff member fill out their favorite things. We hope this helps you if you choose to get a staff member a token of appreciation. Thank you!
Please take a moment to answer this question on our district survey. As a community, would you be interested in the Health Department holding a COVID-19 vaccine clinic in one of our facilities? The Knox County Health Department will run it, we will have no contact with the clinic.

We will use the character education program, Character Strong - Purposeful People. This is the same program that Knoxville Junior High implemented not long ago. We chose this so we could provide continuity between the two levels. There are 10 pillars to the program: courage, perseverance, honesty, respect, gratitude, kindness, responsibility, cooperation, creativity, and empathy. There is a family component as well that includes a letter home that has conversation starters, simple activities, and Family character challenges related to the monthly trait. We know that this bridge is one of the most important ones to build! Speaking a common language between school and home and equipping families with the tools to engage in these meaningful (and sometimes tough!) conversations is critical for sustainable change.
