Knox Middle School
Welcome To October!
Hello Knox Families!
We are in full swing with online learning. Our students are connecting to their Zoom classes and are also having fun in morning Advisory as well as our Grade-level assemblies.
Our online program begins at 8:00 am daily. During Advisory, students participate in Social Emotional Learning, as well as community circles. Students that begin their day with Advisory are connected to school, receive support in organization and goal setting and are ready and on time to their period 1 class.
At 8:30, students attend a grade-level assembly 3 days a week (Monday, Tuesday and Thursday). During these assemblies, we celebrate student success, award brag tags, watch motivational videos, support school spirit and the Bulldog Way and build community. Our Knox ASB will also be hosting various activities during this time. We will be implementing digital Social Emotional Learning themes 3 days a week in our grade-level assemblies. The lessons will focus on: Mindsets and Goal, Values and Friendships, Thoughts, Emotions and Decisions, and Conflict Resolution.
On Wednesday and Friday (at 8:30) students can go to Office Hours with their teachers for more support with classwork and homework. Additional office hours are noted on the grade-level websites.
Student Class Schedules:Students are enrolled in period 1,2,3 for first quarter. The Quarter ends 10/30. After that, students will be enrolled in period 4,5,6 for second Quarter. Grades for 1st quarter become final at that point.
