Operation Saturday School accepting donations

SALISBURY — Knox Center for Accelerated Studies will host Saturday School sessions for students interested in academic assistance outside normal school hours beginning in March.

Knox PTA is seeking donations from businesses, residents and parents to assist with covering the costs of transportation and food. Knox PTA’s “Operation Saturday School” accepts donations year round and has supported previous Saturday School programs and school improvement projects.

Saturday School sessions will begin in early March and last until May for a total of eight sessions. Six teachers will instruct students on Knox’s campus.

“Students at Knox have teachers that really care about their students and really want to dedicate extra time to share their knowledge with students,” said Amber Covington, Knox PTA board member. “With the help of local support, teachers will have the opportunity to encourage students outside normal classroom hours to increase their knowledge and academic skills to help potentially increase their potential test scores in May.”

Make checks payable to Knox Middle PTA and mail to 1625 W. Park Road, Salisbury, NC 28144. Email knoxmiddlepta@gmail.com or call 910-995-1988 for more information.

Also, follow Knox Middle PTA on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Snapchat @knoxmiddlepta.

Membership is open to local businesses, individuals, parents and students for $6.
