Shell Knob School Back in Session

Shell Knob School has opened its doors for the 2019-2020 school year! The Faculty and Staff were so excited about the new school year, we held Meet the Teacher Night Thursday August 15, 2019 just so we could celebrate with our students and their families before the first day of  school on Tuesday August 20, 2019. Students, parents, teachers and administration all enjoyed a great dinner provided by our outstanding kitchen staff at Meet the Teacher Night. 

The first day of school we joined together again to enjoy a fabulous breakfast. As students met their teachers and began a new year of adventures, they were handed out school supplies that were provided by the Alliance of Churches. It is such a blessing to have every student supplied with what they need to be successful. The first few days of school are always the filled with energy. Old friends meeting and getting reacquainted, while new friends are made. Learning and exploring new and interesting subjects and tackling new challenges have us hitting the ground running. 

Students also were greeted by some changes to the look of Shell Knob School. Over the summer lots of great things were going on at SKS. The elementary classrooms and band room had their floors replaced with beautiful, vinyl wood, textured floors. The rooms look so much bigger and brighter with the new flooring!  The Charger Library has also been refreshed, reorganized, and redecorated. The back room has been transformed into Dr. Seuss Land where our younger students will explore books galore! The main library room is focused toward our older students and sports a new open concept floor plan complete with study and reading areas with colorful and comfortable alternative seating. Last but not least the roofs were repaired and resurfaced to insure everyone is safe and dry. 

So many great things going on this school year at Shell Knob School already, we can’t even begin to imagine how wonderful the rest of the year will be. Please, stay tuned for all the exciting and memorable events and activities coming up this year! Look forward to seeing you soon!
