Although we take education very seriously here at Knapp Forest, we have been known to get a little bit silly once in a while…

Wow - what a musical finale for the 5th graders!

We want to thank our fabulous fifth graders, and of course Mrs. Stroh, for their amazing finale performance at the Fine Arts Center. It was an amazing show!

March is Reading Month Kicked Off Today!

Our theme this year is “Duck Duck Dewey” – with a focus on reading books from the different Dewey Decimal categories. The school has been divided into 7 teams which will be competing in a Dewey Duck Derby to win baskets full of non fiction titles for their classroom libraries. Be sure to keep track of non fiction reading at home! Students can also fill out Duck Duck Dewey bingo cards to be placed into a drawing for individual fun prizes.  Be sure to check out our Dewey Duck Pond in the main hallway throughout the month to see what new facts we are learning as we read. Watch for more information to come home with your student, email Mrs. Doctor (ldoctor@fhps.net), or check the media center website, if you have any questions. Attached you can find copies of some of the papers students were given, just in case ;-).
