Attention Knox Knight Parents 2022-2023 πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’šWE NEED YOU!! πŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’™


β€œNo one can do everything, but everyone can do something.” – Max Lucado

Knox PTO is an all-volunteer organization that relies on volunteers to make our school events, programs, and fundraisers a success. We have PTO board, chair and co-chair positions open for the 2022-2023 school year that vary in commitment level.

What’s involved in volunteering? Just a little bit of your time! Junior High PTO is typically more flexible and requires less time. We strive to make all of our PTO volunteers feel welcomed and appreciated! We are a fun bunch of parents and educators with a common goal and commitment to make Knox the best possible school it can be by supporting all Knox students and staff. If you are interested or have additional questions, please feel free to reach out to

Becky Fralix (Current Knox PTO President) or 210-979-1606

7th Grade Immunizations

Texas students entering 7th grade are required to have two additional immunizations prior to the first day of school. One dose of Tdap (Tetanus Diphtheria and Pertussis) is required within the last five years and one dose of MCV4 (Quadrivalent Meningococcal Conjugate) is required on or after 10 years of age. Many students may have already received one or both of these immunizations. Please review your child's immunization record or contact your child's healthcare provider to ensure your child has the required immunizations. Our school nurse is available if you have questions or need to update your child's immunization record. Taking care of these immunization requirements now will help facilitate a smooth transition to Jr. High.
