WHAT IS KNIGHTS KNOW?
Knights KNOW, held each year, is a week where the entire school focuses on our Knights KNOW values and how we can uphold those values in our daily lives. The theme this year is Mason Prep Makes a Difference. Through classroom guidance, I have been talking to students about how we can make positive differences in our lives and the lives of others on a daily basis.

Knights KNOW
Kind (Knights know how to be kind)
Nurturing (Knights know how to be nurturing, by caring for other people)
Optimistic (Knights know how to be optimistic, by thinking positively about the world around them)
Wise (Knights know how to make wise decisions)

ACTIVITIES

- Monday: Knights KNOW kick off assembly with introduction by Miss Stone followed by talk by Dr. Peter Bynum of Mount Pleasant Presbyterian Church on kindness and citizenship.

- Thursday: Mason Prep parent, Cathy Lipp, will talk about making good choices around health and nutrition on the KNITV morning show.

Any art mediums can be used. As long as the student feels (and can explain) what that piece of art means to them, and how it is their story, that is totally fine. No rules to art!
