Now at the end of the second week of school, things are in full swing across KCS when it comes to teaching, learning, and other events outside of class. This week, we thought we’d update you on some of the key work and activities being done by our awesome students and staff… They have certainly hit the ground running!
- This past Friday, the streets of Kingsport were aglow as the Dobyns-Bennett Student Council hosted the first “Glow Tribe Glow” 3K Run/Walk. The event served as a fantastic community collaboration as both young and old came together to support the D-B Student Council. Thanks to all that made this inaugural fund raising event such a success!
- Next week will be an exciting time for the students and staff at Jefferson Elementary, as Australian storyteller Paul Taylor will hold a 5-day residency at the school. Taylor will work with students across the school to teach them more about Australian culture through music and storytelling. What a great opportunity for the entire Jefferson community to experience new learning and cultures! A huge thank you goes out to the Jefferson PTO for helping fund this project.
- It’s about time to kick it off in Kingsport! Can you believe the first D-B varsity football game of 2016 will take place next week? We hope you’ll come out to J. Fred Johnson Stadium to support this year’s football squad, band, cheerleaders, spirit shakers, students, and all the adults that help coach and support. The season will officially kick off at 7:30 p.m. this Thursday evening against Tennessee High.
- Speaking of football, do you have your season tickets yet? If not, all remaining season tickets will go on sale to the general public starting Monday morning at 8 a.m. at the D-B Athletics Office (in the dome lobby). Get ’em while they’re hot!
- Before you head out to J. Fred on Thursday, why not drop by Robinson Middle School for an inner-city volleyball rivalry! The Sevier and Robinson volleyball teams will take to the court starting at 4:30 p.m. Come support both of our squads as they give it their all!
- And finally, you have a little time before the registration deadline, but we hope you’ll consider joining this year’s class of Insight KCS, a 6-session program during 2016-17 that will explore the full scope of education and operation of Kingsport City Schools. The first class begins on September 30, but applications are now being accepted. Click here for more information about Insight KCS!
Have a great weekend!!
