i-Ready Lessons for Math are now open for all 7th and 8th graders!!
Students will be allowed to go on i-Ready and practice the skills that they have learned throughout the school year. This is not mandatory or homework, just extra practice!! These lessons can be completed during study halls, AIS Math Class or at home. Every lesson that is completed and passed will earn them a positive reward ticket. Tickets will be given out on Fridays and can be picked up in the main office.
Report cards will be sent home on Friday, February 1st. Any student failing two or more subjects will be placed on academic probation. These students and their parents will receive weekly progress reports by email and hard copy.
The next Knox dance will be on Friday, February 8th from 7-9 pm. Students that are on academic probation after receiving their report card will need to have all S’s on their weekly progress report for that week to attend. Students also need to be in good behavioral standings with the school. Any referrals can impact their ability to attend.

Knox will also be starting Attendance Battle 2019. Please ask your child about #YOUMATTER. A Spirit week to kick off this battle will be the week of February 4th. Each day will have a new attendance theme.
Knox Junior High School is now offering a community circle opportunity for students to share ideas, develop positive peer interactions and strengthen relationships between students and staff. Specifically, community circles bring students, teachers, support staff and administrators together to develop strong communication skills, listening skills, and empathy. The goal of the community circles are to strengthen relationships in the school setting, provide students a platform to discuss their interests or concerns, and to create strong connections to the school community. You will receive a letter when your child will start this great opportunity.
Tuesdays and Thursdays after school in Mrs. Ipek’s room 204
