|A few days ago, we noticed a mistake regarding the Halls High School graduation time on the website, www.knoxgrads.net. Mrs. Kendra Perry has contacted the website administrator and had the time corrected. Graduation for Halls High School is on May 15 @ 3:00 at Thompson Boling Arena. There will be live streaming through www.knoxgrads.net at 3:00 on May 15 for people that can not attend in person. We are sorry for the conflict in communication.|
The Academic Banquet, scheduled on Thursday, April 24th, is quickly filling up. Students who wish to attend MUST see Mrs. Wineland in room 124 to claim tickets; no tickets will be held for students who do not claim them. Since we are not in school on Friday, ticket sales will end on Thursday or until sold out. Sophomores who would like extra tickets may purchase these on Thursday. Tickets are claimed and sold on a first come, first basis for all grade levels, including seniors. So stop by Mrs. Wineland's room as soon as possible!
My name is Gwen Mynatt and I currently teach CDC Special Education. I have taught at Powell and Halls High school for a combined total of 16 years.
Students enrolled in CDC classroom have been identified as needing a small, structured environment where core academic areas are addressed at the student’s instructional level while still tying the instruction to curriculum standards. Typically, students in this environment have deficits across the curriculum that are significantly below grade level. These students might have significant cognitive deficits as well. In addition to emphasizing academic progress, social skill, self-advocacy, and transition into adult living are important aspects in the program. The advantage of this model is that students have the opportunity to become familiar with their cohort group and their teachers which remains consistent for at least one academic school year.
