Bond 2020

May 5, 2020 Message from Superintendent Hopkins

Fellow Knights,

I am thrilled to report the bond proposal passed! Thank you to all who supported this proposal by voting yes on the ballot and to the many individuals and groups who worked tirelessly under very difficult circumstances to inform and advocate for this proposal and ultimately our students.

I couldn’t be more proud of the Facility Study Team that spent hours over the course of last year studying and discussing our school buildings and grounds. I applaud our Board of Education for not only having the courage to put this proposal on the ballot, but to also keep the proposal on the ballot given the current circumstances we all face. They did so after careful deliberation with the understanding the voting process could be conducted safely in this first ever all absentee ballot election. Finally, I want to thank the Knights for Education. This group of dedicated, unselfish parents, community members and staff spent hours of their personal time advocating for our students. They exemplified what it means to have Knight Pride!

We look forward to the work that lies ahead. Thank you for your ongoing support.

EDUCATION
REDEFINED

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.
