JKMS Mavericks Work Hard, Play Hard!

For John Knight Middle School this has been a year filled with highs and lows, ups and downs.  We have had great moments and moments that were challenging.

With that being said, JKMS Mavericks are strong!  We are resilient!

At JKMS we pride ourselves on our work ethic.  Our campus supervisors, front office staff, teachers, custodians, counselors, paraeducators, students, and administrators are all dedicated to hard work!  We know that nothing in life comes easy.  If we want to be successful we have to work for it!  So at JKMS, we work hard, each and every day!

We have a slogan ” At JKMS we work hard, so we certainly deserve to play hard”!

This video represents the heart 😍 of John Knight Middle School!

I’d like to send a huge shout-out to Sheila Herd for bringing this vision to life.

I’d also like to thank Hudon Nunes and all of the JKMS students and staff who helped create this amazing “Lip Dub” experience!

Please sit back and enjoy the JKMS Lip Dub 2023 edition!
