school policy regarding edible treats

Please note that for the health and safety of all students, treat bags containing any edible items are NOT permitted. If you would like to provide treat bags for your child's class, please include non-edible items only. Any edible items brought into school will not be handed out to students and will be discarded. Thank you for following this policy and keeping our students safe.

Tiger Shop gift cards are a great alternative. They have gift cards available in denominations from $.25 to $2.00. If you would like to purchase gift cards for the Winter Party, please contact Dana Gibson by December 17th.

cookie party for staff

It's that time of year! It is the time for sharing happiness, warmth, and appreciation for the people around us. Do you have a secret recipe for yummy cookies (or a place you love to buy them?) We are asking you to make (or buy) some delicious cookies for our amazing teachers and staff at McKnight.

Every year around this time, we like to share a tray of delicious fresh cookies from our McKnight families to celebrate the holidays and to let them know that we appreciate what they do for our children every day! Let's show our McKnight staff some love! Please sign up to bring in cookies on December 20th by clicking here

Thanks in advance!
