Dear Parents and Guardians of Future Knox Students,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your son or daughter to the Knox community. Our main office is open from 7am-lpm Monday thru Thursday, should you have any questions.

Orientation for Seventh Grade and new students will be held Tuesday, August 28, 2018 at 6:00 p.m., student schedules will be available at that time.

Knox School Supply Kit– In an effort to assist students with organization as they transition to Knox, a school supply kit has been developed. The kit will include everything your son or daughter will need for a successful year at Knox. The kit will include binders that will be used for specific periods throughout the day as well as other school supplies teachers would normally request. The supply kits will be packaged and available only through Knox, please do not purchase elsewhere. We have secured a special pricing deal that we believe will save everyone money, the price of the kit will be $35.00. Pending delivery, kits should be available for purchase starting the week of August 13th and will continue to be available through the school year, while supplies last. Kits can be purchased directly at Knox from the main office and will be available at Orientation. Payment may be in the form of cash or check, made payable to Knox Jr. High. Please know that some teachers may request specific items for their respective class and that information will be given at the start of school.

We look forward to welcoming you all into the Knox family. Have a safe, enjoyable and relaxing summer. We will see you in August.

Very truly yours,

Robert C. Kraemer

Knox Little Dresses for Africa

Knox Little Dresses for Africa

We're not just sending dresses, we're sending hope

Mrs. Rusnica’s Life Studies students constructed 50 dresses for little girls in Africa during their Sewing Skills Unit during May and June. All Knox eighth graders take part in a Community Service Project during their Life Studies experience.

These dresses will be sent with mission groups, or mailed directly, and distributed to young girls in Malawi, Africa. The road is especially tough for little girls and young women. Often small children are left as primary caregivers of younger children because of the death of their parents from disease and poverty. These little dresses, given freely to those in need, plant the seed that they are worthy. If you would like to learn more, please click HERE.

Budget Revote

Johnstown High School Auditorium Lobby

Hedi Mckinley – Holocaust Survivor

Ms. McKinley with students in Knox auditoriumOn Friday, June 1st, Mrs. Schuttenberg arranged for Heidi Mckinley to speak to Knox students, faculty, and parents. Heidi Mckinley, 96, grew up in Austria, right next to Germany. She shared her life story about escaping from Austria in the late 1930s. She spoke about how one day two boys appeared at her door demanding her family  to leave, saying “All Jews out.” The boys used to deliver goods for Heidi’s father’s meat store. Mckinley, who was 18 at the time, took their home key and hid it in her clothing. The family was warned by the Nazis not head back to their apartment. She eventually went back to the apartment to pick up some items and found things basically destroyed — food was smeared over the floor and her two goldfish were dead. She said she saw Hitler and described him as ugly with green eyes. This was a unique opportunity for the

students. Mckinley looks forward to returning to Knox next year.

Mckinley held a question and answer session after her presentation. The students had many questions. She only allows pictures after her presentation due to unexpected flashing of cameras has affected her since the Holocaust.

Congratulations to our “Student of the Week” Winners!

Conner Edel – 5/18/18, nominated by Mrs. Hart

Ben Krempa – 5/25/18, nominated by Mr. Jennings

Bradley Chubbuck – 6/1/18, nominated by Mrs. Blackwood

Congratulations to the Knox Jr. High Odyssey of the Mind team! The Energetic Engineers finished 18th overall at the world competition held at Iowa State University.
