“ I have always been a big believer in the idea of “work hard, play hard.” Our students and staff work so hard every day both inside and outside of the school day to keep up with the demands of them. It is important to take some time to blow off a little steam and celebrate every once in a while. Pep rallies give us a opportunity. I love seeing our school community come together, show how proud we are to be Kings Knights, and encourage one another to keep doing great things.”
