Happy Thanksgiving

Knox County Schools family,

As we enter the busy season of Thanksgiving and Christmas, I would like to take a moment to express my gratitude to the students, staff, and families of Knox County that make our school system a wonderful place to learn and to work.

It has been a year filled with challenges and rewards as we all work to ensure that students are prepared for a successful future.  Thanks to your commitment, Knox County earned distinguished ratings this year on the state accountability system and we are well on our way to having an aligned and rigorous curriculum.  These are achievements that we will build upon throughout the rest of this school year and beyond.

Everyday our KCPS family provides students with a safe, positive learning environment where they can learn and grow.  Every single employee of the school district plays a role inspiring leaders and changing futures.  No state assessment will ever measure the meaningful relationships and care that you show our children.

I am humbled by the opportunity to serve our community and to work alongside so many talented individuals who care about our children.

From my family to yours, have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
