A message from our Principal
Hello McKnight Families:
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! We hope you have had time this summer to relax and have fun with family and friends. We know you are balancing many different things as you prepare for the first day of school. In this email we have provided as much information as we can to help you prepare. We are looking forward to seeing you on September 1st!
You may review plans for the 2021-2022 school year on our website. This is where you can find the most current information from Renton School District about the start of the school year.
At McKnight, we are committed to creating a student-centered environment. This means academic excellence, and lifelong learning are key values for us. In addition, we nurture the social and emotional growth and development of each student. We are guided by Renton’s School District strategic plan and focus our work on service, equity, and excellence. We have goals aligned to our strategic plan focused on three ideas: core learning and teaching, social emotional learning, and family and community engagement.
Lancer Days is an opportunity to visit campus, collect items and schedules for the first days of school, pay fees, take a tour, and get questions answered. Lancer days will take place August 25th from 9 am – 3 pm & August 26th from 1 pm – 7 pm. More specific communication will be shared in the next 2 weeks.
