Knox School Board Updated on Kindergarten Family Night, Approves Rainy Day Fund Transfer


Future Knox kindergarten students had the chance to meet their teachers and learn about their new school. Superintendent A.J. Gappa estimates 65 potential students and their families attended the elementary school’s recent kindergarten family night.

As part of that night’s activities, Gappa says many of the kids had their first taste of eating in a cafeteria. He adds families were also provided with reading materials, to give incoming kindergarten students a head start. The Knox School Board got an update on the family night event during the Spotlight on Success portion of its meeting Monday.

In other business, the school board was able to boost the corporation’s Rainy Day Fund. Gappa says that following the purchase of two school buses in December, there was still some money left over in the Bus Replacement Fund.

The school board voted Monday to transfer those surplus funds into the Rainy Day Fund.
