Welcome To January!
Hello Knox Families!
Happy New Year!
We hope all of our Knox families had a restful, safe, and happy winter break. Semester 1 ends January 22nd. Please reach out to us if you need your Parent Portal password. We offer tutoring for students every Saturday from 10-12 on Zoom. The Zoom code has been sent to students in their email.
This month we will continue to celebrate student achievement with our Brag Tag program. Students can earn brag tags by checking their email, reading daily in Achieve 3000, participating in our Advisory program, joining our Saturday morning Zoom tutoring sessions, and for participating online. If you haven't had a chance to pick up your student's brag tags, please come to the main office at Knox between 8:00 and 3:30 daily.

Knox Middle Is Marzano Level 1 Certified!!
It is a great honor to receive this certification. The Knox staff has been truly dedicated to analyzing data and developing creative ways to build an incredible middle school experience for our students, while working collaboratively with our Knox families and each other.

Knox Primetime Update
Hello Knox Students & Families!
We had a very successful “Watch Party” this past month! Where we watched the Los Angeles, Chargers take on the Las Vegas raiders. The game was watched online and we were also able to have pizza ordered to the homes of those who were able to partake in our party! In order to be considered for events such as these moving forward, keep a look out for our monthly newsletters as well joining us on our zoom calls Monday-Thursday 3p-6p.
Thank you for all your help and support in getting your kids involved with PrimeTime! We have had an awesome amount of participation but are always looking to add more of your students to the mix! We are continuously enrolling throughout the school year to give your children the best opportunity to participate in sports, arts and other fun activities.
Beginning the month of January, we will be implementing new program activities! Which will consist of a sports day, artistic expression, workout day along with college/career readiness!
We look forward to having you and your kids become a part of our Knox PrimeTime family!
Hope everyone is doing well during this current time. Stay safe!
