Congratulations to parents, Alex and Briana Barrett, big sister, Alice Rose, grandparents Jason and Lisa Lewis and Hank and Sue Barrett! Welcome to Knights Ferry, Aleksander!


Knights Ferry School was a full house on the first day of school. There was pure excitement in the air while all the kids bustled into their classrooms. New secretary, Amiee Ryan looked very comfortable behind the front desk! The school has various upgrades including new blinds in some classrooms and tile in a few of the bathrooms. It was a bittersweet year for me personally, because it was my LAST first day of school at Knights Ferry School.

Dr. J hosted a coffee and donut morning for Knights Ferry School parents on Friday. It was a small group but there were a lot of Kindergarten moms. Welcome to the school, ladies!
