MESSAGE MONDAY

Life is a Highway; Drive Safely All Day Long!

Ever feel like you spend most of your time in the car? Data shows the longest commute time in Iowa is by those who live in Guthrie county with an average commute time of 27.3 minutes.

While commuters in other parts of the country would laugh at Iowans talking about commute times like that as a problem, it only takes a second behind the wheel for something to go terribly wrong. Following these five guidelines will go a long way to keeping you and your passengers, as well as others on the road, safer:

  • Buckle up – every seat, every trip
  • Pay attention
  • Drive sober
  • Stay alert
  • Slow down

 

SPORTS:

  • All Girls BB players need dismissed today at 2:30.
  • Any boy going out for track can find voluntary workouts posted in the locker rooms. First day of official practice will be February 22nd.

Welcome to Knoxville High School

Knoxville High School is 9th-12th grade building with approximately 600 students.  The staff of Knoxville High School strives to provide the best educational opportunities for all students.  KHS is a 1 to 1 laptop school where all students are issued a Macintosh Laptop to use 24 hours a day and 7 days a week during the school year.  The high school is located in Knoxville, which is located 35 miles southeast of Des Moines, and it is known as the Sprint Car Capital of the World.

Students attending KHS are required to graduate with 46 credits including eight credits in Language Arts and six each in Social Studies, Science, and Math.  KHS staff prides itself in providing students a wide range of opportunities to meet their academic interests and needs.  We also work very hard to provide students with opportunities to experience some of the most current trends in technology.

Knoxville High School provides students an opportunity to explore interests in several different areas such as our Construction Trades class partners with Habitat For Humanity each to build a home in the community, auto mechanics, welding, and various course in business, and family consumer science.    The Fine Arts Department rates high in state competition.  Vocal and Instrumental departments consistently receive Division I ratings in contests and the Art Department always has award winning artists.

In addition to providing our students opportunities to gain technical skills, KHS prides itself in continuing to provide students opportunities to receive college credit while attending high school. Students have college credit opportunities in Math, Business, Health Occupations, and Science.  DMACC has an evening presence in the building in which many high school students take advantage of.  Other students also have an opportunity to take advantage of Central College by taking classes on campus in Pella.

KHS has a wide variety of opportunities for student to get involved in extracurricular activities.   Boys have opportunities to participate in football, cross country, wrestling, basketball, bowling, swimming, track, tennis, soccer, golf, and baseball.  Girls can participate in volleyball, cross country, swimming, basketball, bowling, soccer, golf, tennis, and softball.   We also have opportunities for all students to participate other activities such as FFA, Debate, Marching Band, Vocal contests, Dance, Cheerleading, Student Leadership, Science Club, National Honor Society, Camera Club, and several other activities.

We continue to put our focus on communication with parents using the parent portal as part of the JMC student management system used in the district.  With a username and password, parents can get updates on student grades, attendance, and lunch account balances.  Sending an email to a teacher using the system is very simple.  In addition to JMC, we will provide parents information using our activities scheduling program at www.knoxville.k12.ia.us by selecting activities schedule and signing up to receive text message or email notifications of all schedule changes.

Please join us on Twitter at @KHS_Panthers where we will be providing current news and updates daily.  We also have a KHS Panthers Facebook page.

We are very proud of the accomplishments of our students.  Please feel free to come visit us.
