Parent TepTalk #4
How does the school share important information with parents?
Each month an email, called the TepTalk, will be sent home with important information about what is going on at school. These TepTalks will also be posted on our school website. Other ways that we will communicate include phone messages and texts. Please make sure that your contact information is up to date with our registrar. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter @mmslancers. Please reach out to us if we can offer support or answer questions. Our staff is committed to positive, 2 way communication and we want you to feel welcome at school.
Conferences are this week at McKnight. Please see the modified student schedule and parent conferences time noted below. Conferences at McKnight don’t require any pre-arranged times. Show up and visit your child’s classes. We will have staff handing out your child’s schedule at the attendance office as well as scattered throughout the building to guide you to visit with teachers. You can go in any order you wish. There will be seats outside of each classroom for you to wait for the teacher. Teachers will have access to live interpreters as well as a phone service that we can use. Please come visit us to find out how your child is doing and let us know how we can better support your family.

McKnight is now collecting Box Tops for Education. Students can win Lancer Loot by turning in Box Tops in homeroom or using the BTFE app. Download the app, select McKnight Middle School, and start scanning your receipts when you buy participating Box Tops items. Please support our school’s effort to raise funds for school events by supporting this effort.
On Thursday 11/21, students brought home fundraising information for the annual ASB Fundraiser through Northwest Fundraising. All proceeds from these go straight back to the students and the ASB (Associated Student Body) decides what they want to do with these funds. The money pays for items like end of year celebrations, guest speakers for assemblies, and fun activities throughout the school year. Thanks for your support. Fundraiser money is due December 4th, 2019
The McKnight Book Fair has opened and you can shop online or in our library. Here is a link to the McKnight Book Fair homepage. The Online fair is open and the library is open through the morning of Wednesday, November 27th and during evening conferences! Flyers are available in the library and went home with students this week. Here is link to a digital flyer. A new feature this year is the eWallet through which parents can load money to a student Scholastic account instead of sending cash with their students. We thank you for your support. The funds raise go towards our library collection and support our student literary needs.
