Welcome to McKnight! We are so excited to partner with you and make this year great for your child! At MMS, we are committed to providing each student with not only the tools they need to be academically successful, but also with a positive school experience that fosters a sense of community and belonging. Our staff is dedicated to creating and sustaining an inclusive, engaging, and safe environment for students. We offer a variety of classes to our Lancers, including electives such as art, music, technology/STEM, Spanish, study skills, leadership, and publications, which allow students to pursue their creativity and expand their interests while simultaneously engaging in rigorous instructional experiences. McKnight supplements the academic day with a multitude of after school activities, including ASB, sports, academic help, and student-driven clubs. We strive to provide students with rich academic experiences as well opportunities to develop their physical and social-emotional selves. Our goal is to prepare our Lancers to be successful for whatever their futures hold!
At McKnight, we also welcome opportunities to collaborate with families and the greater community. Each week, parents will receive a weekly newsletter with information about upcoming events, student celebrations, and other resources. Additionally, we have a strong partnership with our Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), and we regularly plan evening activities to support family and community engagement. Families are always encouraged to reach out to the school with questions, concerns, or suggestions.
On behalf of the MMS staff, I want to again welcome you to the McKnight community! We are looking forward to cultivating a strong relationship with your family and making sure your child has a fantastic year!
It’s a great day to be a Lancer!
Amy Frey, Principal
