Dear Families of Knapp Forest,
All we can say is wow! You are so incredibly gracious and generous with your resources. Hawk Walk donations have far surpassed our expectations. During this time of dwindling resources for public schools, these funds will dramatically impact the types of experiences your children receive. Our students are fortunate to live in a community that values and supports education.
There are so many great experiences and opportunities that await your children here at Knapp Forest. Your continued support and trust has allowed us to help make Knapp Forest a truly special place for students and families. Our hope is that you realize how much your continued support means to each of us here at Knapp Forest. We are proud to serve a community that values the work we do.
With Much Gratitude,
These students were chosen to represent their class at the 2014 Gala for True Success. This program is being piloted in Mrs.Damstra’s class this year. It focuses on building essential life skills so that kids learn their importance once they graduate from high school and enter the workforce, or go to college. The pieces that were submitted for the Gala were about respect and the importance of this life long skill.
