Dear Knappa Community:

We have a busy couple of days at the end of this week.
Thursday, April 28 is Kindergarten Registration. If you have an incoming kindergartner, please contact  the HLE office to get signed up. There will be a session in the morning and then another in the  afternoon. Preschool enrollment is also starting now.

Today, our middle school students who have maintained a 3.0 GPA or better and have positive behavior are taking a trip to the Fun Center in Long Beach.
April 29 is the Foundation Event. Tickets are still for sale on the Knappa Schools Foundation website.  We appreciate all of the support Knappa Schools Foundation provides for our students and teachers.  Thanks to Betsy Johnson, gubernatorial candidate, for her ongoing support for KSF and for being willing to join us on Friday night.

Our first place Boy’s Baseball team plays a three game series against St. Paul on Thursday and then has a  double header on Friday. These games will influence the Division Championship given that St. Paul is  currently in second place. Coming up the week of May 9th, the boys have a three game series against  Neah-Kah-Nie which also has post-season implications.
The softball team plays Neah-Kah-Nie on Wednesday and then hosts Gaston on Friday. On April 29 and 30, students will compete in the State Forestry Competition near Oregon City.

Just down the street in Gladstone, our beginning band, high school choir, and high school percussion  ensemble will be competing on Saturday the 30th. Thanks to Mr. Achilles for his hard work preparing the  musicians, and to the students for their hard work practicing for our first competition in over a decade.

On April 28th we are hosting the NW League Track meet and on April 30, our track team will compete at the Portland Christian Invitational.

Upcoming, on May 7, our students will celebrate their Prom.

And, yes, the item you have all been waiting for…the final Superintendent Chat of the year will be on May 16 at 6pm.

There is so much going on right now for our students. It is so nice to have a hiatus from the pandemic where so many normal spring activities are happening for students.
We wish you all the best this week. Thanks for all that our parents and community do to support the students.
