Mavericks Start Strong, Finish Strong!

Over the last few weeks, we have worked to complete CASSPP testing for Math and ELA, and Science.  Our students were prepared and took their assessments seriously.  I am so proud of the hard work our Mavericks have done.  Next week students will continue CAASPP make-ups.

We have three more weeks of school to go and our goal is to ensure that teaching and learning continue through the last day of school!

School Site Council

John Knight Middle School Site Council has one parent vacancy.

We are still searching for students, staff, and 6th and 7th-grade parents to join our School Site Council (SSC).  We can not make important decisions related to student services, needs, and budgeting without an active School Site Council.  The SSC meets monthly on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm via Zoom.  The next meeting is Wednesday, May 17.  If interested, please let us know by completing the Google Form.  Click here to complete the form.
