We hope you had a restful and festive Thanksgiving, whether you traveled or remained in beautiful Knappa. Yes, it’s that time of year. A time when Hilda Lahti is celebrating dress up days, the high schoolers are hosting the annual blood drive (December 7) and having fun with “winter week” activities, the first high school home basketball games are being played, wrestling is up and running, and musicians are preparing for their Holiday Concert (December 15).

I write to you this week in a state of sorrow. Over the last two weeks, we have lost two members of our community in fatality accidents on Highway 30. This has impacted many students within our schools, some who lost family members directly, and others who either witnessed one of the accidents or are impacted having known a victim. Our hearts go out to those affected by these losses.

I hope you are well in the cooler November weather. As the first quarter comes to an end, this is an opportunity to celebrate students’ accomplishments and to have a fresh start for those who need it.

It has been quite a week in Knappa. At the league cross country meet last week, the Knappa men placed 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 10th, and 13th of the 25 participants, scoring plenty of points in their team win. The rain that started last week has been perfect for our baseball field project. The hydroseed was applied last Thursday and it has rained every day since. On Wednesday night October 26th, I will be hosting a community conversation in the HLE cafeteria at 7pm. Knappa School District is always trying to learn and improve. Friday October 28th, from 3:30-5:00 pm, of course is Trunk or Treat in the school parking lot. Sugar high before the football game anybody??

Conferences. We look forward to hosting families for conferences on Wednesday and Thursday. We want to hear from you regarding the District Success Plan. Tomorrow night we will host our Title I parent night at 6pm in the HLE Cafeteria. Ballots are on the way. We are still looking for a parent representative to serve on the Bond Design Team.

Welcome to October! As we begin the second month of school, it is nice to have some normalcy to the way school feels. Monitoring case counts, complying with mask mandates, and the general stress of the COVID period seem to, at least for now, be in the rear view mirror. We remain in contact with the health department, and we are following safety protocols, but school feels like pre-COVID again

School is now in full swing. It is so nice to be back to a normal year. In the classrooms, we can see teachers implementing newly learned literacy strategies with the support of our new curriculum. Students seem to be in good spirits in both schools. The preschool students are getting the hang of how to “do school.”

It was wonderful to welcome our preschool and kindergarten students back to school on Monday. Last week, the teachers had the opportunity to meet individually with parents so that we all could launch the year on the right foot.
