Red Ribbon Week: October 23 - October 27
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The month of October is almost over and Thanksgiving break is just around the corner. The campus has many games this week for Volleyball and Football along with the Fall Dance on Friday, October 27, 2023. In addition, our campus is focusing on adding new clubs over the next few weeks to broaden the choices for students to become involved. We are designating three bulletin boards in the main hall to promote all campus clubs and activities. The KNOX JHS website also will have an updated list of clubs and their meeting times. Hopefully, we can continue to expand our list each year.
Red Ribbon Week: October 23 - October 27
Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug prevention awareness campaign observed annually in October in the United States. It began as a tribute to fallen DEA special agent Enrique Camerena in 1985 who was working undercover to end a drug war in Mexico. In honor of his efforts, Red Ribbon Week was born. Knox will recognize Red Ribbon week with fun dress up days, but we hope the message rings loud and clear: I BELIEVE IN ME.....STAY DRUG FREE!!! The counselors will provide information regarding Red Ribbon Week to students through their Advisory classes.
Fall Dance, Friday, October 27, from 4:10 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.:
We are excited about our upcoming dance this Friday. Tickets are on sale through School Cash online, and the price is $5.00 per ticket. The number of tickets are limited, and we have sold about 50% of them at this point. Therefore, do not wait to buy one. As for the day of the dance, students will be allowed to change into costumes at the end of the school day, and they must be school appropriate. However, due to safety reasons and issues of mobility, we would like students to refrain from wearing very large inflatable costumes. Also, no masks will be allowed. If you have any specific questions about costumes, please reach out to your child's Assistant Principal. Reminder: We still need volunteers and donations for the dance. You can reach out to our PTO, or our campus Student Council sponsors, Ms. Cadey and Ms. Cutter.
