Principal’s CornerDear Knight Community,
We at Knight Elementary ended the year on an energetic and positive note! I appreciate the many volunteers who supported our school during the last month or so. We had a very successful Jog-A-Thon, Open House and Science Gallery. I am proud to be a part of the community that is Knight Elementary.
As I look forward to summer with my own family, I am reminded of the limited time I actually have with my children as they get older. I want this summer to be filled with great memories for my entire family.
As you think about this summer, please consider the following ideas. Please help keep your child active by playing outside, reading, playing board and card games, engaging in everyday math problem solving, visiting the public library, and enjoying time with family. These are all activities that will help retain the skills they have worked so hard to build and that will make the memories that childhood should have. Might I even say, that sitting for hours on end, playing video games throughout the summer, will not be the type of memories we want them to have from childhood? As the adults in our children’s lives, we have a wonderful opportunity to make this summer one of exploration and wonderful memories.
Have a wonderful summer!
Christine Taylor, Principal
