Knox Hold In Place

Today at Knox Jr. High School, our students were asked to hold in place while staff attended to a student situation. Holding in place limited activity in the hallways. Students were allowed to change classes and use restrooms during this time.

Hold in place procedures are often used to successfully provide emergency services for students and staff in the most discrete and expeditious way possible. None of our students were in danger at any time.

Bridge Arts Ensemble

On Thursday, November 8th, Knox students enjoyed a visit from members of the Bridge Arts Ensemble. The day started out with workshops for band and chorus students including: Choral Masterclasses, How to Work Together, Band Clinic and Beginning Improvisation. In the afternoon, all students attended a concert titled “Music of the 60’s” which showcased the evolution of music over the past few centuries. Their visit to Knox and other schools in the Greater Johnstown School District was made possible by the generosity of an anonymous donor.

The Bridge Arts Ensemble is a Teaching Artist organization that brings music to over 50 school districts in the Adirondack Park Region, and impacts 50,000+ students annually.

BAE artists travel from New York City in ensembles of 6 (2 singers, a pianist, a percussionist and 2 additional instrumentalists) for residencies in each school district, ranging between three and five days. Working with individual schools, Bridge Arts Ensemble artists aim to tailor their activities to best support a school’s curriculum and arts education needs.
Each ensemble consists of a variety of diverse musicians, exposing students to musical styles including Broadway, Classical, Jazz and World music. BAE’s roster is made up of some of New York City’s finest musicians including graduates of The Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music, Yale School of Music, and Cleveland Institute of Music. As experienced Teaching Artists, our roster contains members of Carnegie’s Ensemble Connect (formerly ACJW), the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Jazz at Lincoln Center, New York Philharmonic Teaching Artists, as well as current and former cast members of Broadway, off-Broadway and National Touring productions

For more information about the Bridge Arts Ensemble, please visit their website: https://www.bridgeartsensemble.org/
