Knighthawks Give Back!

Pleasant Knoll has a new club called Knighthawks Give Back. This club will be using the Coca-Cola Give program as its fundraiser. When you make Coca-Cola purchases, you simply enter the product codes here: and our school receives a donation. The codes are printed on the inside of bottle caps and the cardboard on 12-packs (any Coke product). If you would like to send the codes in with your student, the club members will enter the codes for you. Just send to your child’s homeroom teacher and we will take care of the rest. All donations will be used to give back to our community. Thank you for your support!

Congrats to Ms. Morgan and Ms. Shaw - FSI Teacher of the Weeks

Please make an appointment for your child to update their Tdap vaccination before next school year. All seventh graders will be required to get the Tdap vaccine to protect them against whooping cough (pertussis). One (1) dose of Tdap vaccine (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) administered on or after the 10th birthday will be required for all seventh graders. It is strongly recommended that adolescents who have not yet received a dose of Tdap vaccine be immunized in advance of this requirement. Students who are not up to date with their Tdap vaccination may not be allowed to attend school. For more information, please visit

Please send a copy of the SC immunization record to the school nurse once they receive the updated vaccination.
