Kitty Hawk SkillsUSA Team Gives Back

The Kitty Hawk Middle School SkillsUSA program really blew away the state contest with the team it sent and for the second time in a row Mr. Julian Acevedo took the Opening and Closing team to the national conference in Louisville Kentucky.  While they were there, team members participated in a community improvement project to build bench tables that will be donated to the Louisville-area nonprofit organizations, public schools and community parks.  A big thanks to Lowes for donating the supplies and tools while the students put in the sweat equity. Thanks to Mr. Acevedo for involving these kids in doing something for others. 

We'll update you on the competition as the news comes in!

Students "Knighted" At Hartman

Being "Knighted" as a student at Hartman Elementary School (the home of the Knights) is no small matter.  The school hosts a special ceremony for those students that have demonstrated exceptional character at school and consistently shows a positive and supportive spirit. With staff dressed in their King Arthur-era regalia, students are "Knighted" as the kind of students that are more than just about academics, but the whole idea of being a well-rounded individual who is positive and considerate of others as they pursue their goals.  Congratulations to all of them.

Converse ES Student Wins Writing Contest

The National Elementary Honor Society recently solicited hundreds of schools to submit stories about the concept of responsibility.  Converse Elementary School was one of those campuses contacted.  The challenge was called the Watson Writing Project (Watson is the mascot of NEHS) and involved 430 other applicants.  Converse ES 5th grader Emerson Curtis was chosen to have her story published in the fall in the Watson Anthology.  That anthology is about the four pillars of the National Elementary Honor Society...scholarship, responsibility, service and leadership. Congratulations to Emerson on her efforts and her accomplishment of being a published author!
