If you are bringing a date from outside our school you need to come get a form from outside Mrs. Knox's room. This form states that the student you are a trying to bring is not a bad apple and would not cause a ruckus for us at the dance. The school that they attend must sign and fax the form back to us. Forms will not be accepted from students. Inviting someone from our school is a much simpler option.

Homecoming week will be here soon. We will have 3 spirit days that week to celebrate the week. We are out of school on Monday and Tuesday for fall break, so the first day will be Wednesday. We are calling Wednesday, "When I Grow up" We would like to see everyone dressed up like what they want to be as an adult. Maybe an astronaut, a doctor or even a soldier. Thursday will be "Traditional Trick or Treat" So try to put together a witch, a clown or maybe an angel costume. Be sure to bring a jack-o-lantern for some sweet treats around the school. Friday will be "Decade Day" You can come as a 20's flapper or gangster, 50's sock hopper , hippie tie dye or even 80s big hair. Here's a short video to give you some ideas if things to wear during homecoming week.
