We have a new class! Learn more about Success Skills:

Success Skills is a class where your child has the opportunity to make up any missing work. With your encouragement at home, your son/daughter should enjoy many rewarding experiences from this class. Since lifelong success depends in part on learning to make responsible choices, I have developed a set of expectations which guides every student to make good decisions regarding his or her schoolwork. Your child deserves the most positive educational climate possible for his or her growth, and I know that together we will make a difference in this process. The plan below outlines my expectations for the class.


Success Skills Expectations:

  • Follow the directions of the instructor
  • Be in your seat ready to complete work when class begins
  • You MUST bring ALL required materials to class to complete missing assignments
  • The work atmosphere will be quiet with little to no interruptions


I look forward to working with your students, Ms. Knapp
