Summer Update! We hope you are having a good summer so far. It is hard to believe it has only been a week since school has ended. Things have been busy at school. We have already finished asbestos abatement in the new preschool classrooms and the portables that are scheduled for removal. Next week, the contractors will begin the interior work for the preschool, ADA restroom, and sewer line trenching at Hilda Lahti Elementary.

Welcome to June! Here is the update. Walk-a-thon. This week students and employees have been involved in multiple activities. Yesterday, the high school leadership class hosted a walk-a-thon to support installation of a well in South Sudan. They raised $2781 toward this worthy cause. Thanks to the students for participating, the donors for their support, and to Ms. Whitten and the leadership team for organizing the event.

Wednesday night’s academic recognition for our K-8 students was so much fun. We had 92 people at the event, which honored students who met their academic goals in mathematics and reading. Thank you to Ms. Palenske and Ms. McMullen for arranging this event and to the School Board who was in attendance to help recognize the hard work of these scholars.

Make Up Days/Time at KHS. As the threat of inclement weather and power outages are in the rear view mirror, we have done our analysis of whether there is a need to make up school time. At Knappa High School, we have not met the state established minimum instructional time requirements for this year. Accordingly, I will be recommending to the School Board that we make up one day of school to occur on June 14, 2023. That means that June 13 will be a full day for high school students and June 14 will be a half-day.

We are excited for the arrival of spring in Knappa Schools! Baseball, and Softball are in full swing (no pun intended) now, with both high school teams participating in tournaments during the break... Knappa Schools Foundation will host its dinner/auction on April 22. The Foundation supports students with all kinds of learning opportunities and acts as a critical support to supplement programs in our school system... This month, we anticipate taking delivery of two new school buses. Both are partially financed through a DEQ grant because they replace diesel buses that did not have modern anti-pollution equipment.

What a busy week it has been in our schools. This week we celebrated Classified Employee Appreciation Week, where we honored our bus drivers, kitchen staff, office staff, program assistants, custodians, maintenance employees, and our bus mechanic. They are key to our ability to educate students and keep them safe.

Thank you for your patience with us as we dealt with the school delays on Tuesday. It is an exciting week in Knappa sports. Last night, the boys’ basketball team beat Portland Christian in a “nail biter” by a score of 49 to 47 in the Northwest League playoff game. The girls’ team plays tonight against Vernonia. On Saturday, both teams will be playing in Vernonia in another League Playoff game. The state wrestling championships occur next week. Isabella Ramirez, Kiya Roe, Corbin Roe, and Donnie VanGundy will represent Knappa in the event. Best of luck to them in the tournament.
