Intimidators Reward Reading and Literacy

The Reading All Stars program likes to recognize greatness in school and reward students for reaching their goals and it is a team initiative to enhance literacy in the area.

We are looking for girls who like to run! GOTR is a mentoring program for young ladies that is centered around running. Each week we meet to discuss/ engage in age appropriate skills that address the whole child. They are also building stamina for a 5K in May that allows the ladies to walk or run. For more information about this program, go to the Girls on the Run or Heart and Sole websites.

Knox held a pep rally as part of their Spirit Week activites. One of the events that took place during the pep rally was a free-throw contest which was won by siblings, K. Cortez and Y. Pimentel.
