Hello Knight Family:
What a great week to start the 2023-2024 school year! On Wednesday we spent the afternoon getting to know each other within our classes with games led by our class sponsors. We followed this with class competitions which our student council members planned and led. Have you heard which class won these? There were some serious competitions and the stage was set for Homecoming Week at the end of September.
One of our goals is for students to come home each night and talk to you about school. If your student isn’t offering up information, try questions like: What was one thing you learned today that you didn’t know this morning? What was the funniest thing that happened at school? How did you help someone today? Hopefully, questions like this will give you more insight than the typical, how was school with the fine response!
Our Open House is tonight! This is for all families AND their students! We will start in the east (old) gym with a quick introduction and overview then you and your student will walk through their schedule. Teachers will each make a short presentation, introducing themselves and talking about their class, then you will move on to your student’s next class! You will have the opportunity to meet each faculty member that your student has during the day. You are then invited to Wilson Field for a free hot dog/chips/lemonade before the Red & Gold Scrimmage!
And finally, don’t forget that PICTURE DAY is Monday!!! Yes, it will be hot! Parents of Seniors, please have your student dress up … ties, collared shirts, dresses etc. These pictures will be used for graduation! Look, it only took us two days to begin talking about graduation!
We encourage you to follow us on our social media, Arthur CUSD #305 on Facebook, alahknights on Instagram, and ALAHKnights on Twitter, to stay up to the minute on our schedule and any changes that happen!
Enjoy the weekend. Stay cool!
