Principal’s CornerDear Knight Community,
This past week has been a super exciting week for our students! We started Monday with classes touring our school and looking at classroom doors decorated in a way that depicted a favorite children’s book. On Tuesday the students enjoyed an entertaining assembly that featured the professional children’s author, David Greenburg. On Wednesday, every student had the opportunity to select a used book from our Book Exchange. It was so great to see the students pour over the choices and finally decide which book to take home! On Friday, we invited our family and friends to have lunch with us as we celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday!
Throughout the week we enjoyed the Scholastic Book Fair. Thank you to Mrs. Veatch for organizing the book fair for us.
Lastly, throughout the week, each homeroom classroom had a guest reader come to the class and read one of their own favorite children’s books. We appreciate all of the guests that came and talked with our students about the importance of learning to read well. Our guests included the following generous individuals:
Jennifer Turner (principal from Baker Prairie), Trip Goodall (Superintendent), Tracie Heidt (city councilwoman), Sheryl Lipski (Director of Teaching and Learning), Mrs. Kinzie (nurse), Diane Holme (nurse), Pam Barrow (retired Knight instructional assistant), Mary Walsh (Canby Education Foundation), Marilyn Wood (retired Lee Elementary principal)
A lot of extra work went into having all of these excellent experiences for our students this week! Thank you to all who were involved!
Christine Taylor, D.Ed.
