Pupils in S5/S6 will receive their tracking report today. This will include details of presentation levels for the forthcoming SQA Examinations.
Self found forms are due Monday 21 March 2016.
S3 pupils are nearing the end of the time when self found forms can be handed in The deadline is Monday 21 March 2016. Please let us know at school if the form will be held up for any reason. If forms are still at the bottom of bags, it's probably too late to secure a placement now. The database has a supply of jobs remaining, but they are dwindling fast!
The latest updates in Book Collections are:
The Dystopian Collection from East Lothian Libraries is currently in Knox Academy. If you are looking for
something to move onto after The Hunger Games browse and find your next new read now.

School Group. The collection is currently in the East Lothian Collection section of the library.
Quick Reads and World Book Day books are available for loan in the School Library near the Issue Desk.
The titles include books by Andy McNab; David Baddiel and Juno Dawson.
Once again this year, Knox Academy is offering Easter Revision Sessions to assist our pupils with additional support as they prepare for their Final Examinations. This will be on offer Monday to Thursday of the second week of the holidays. The Easter Revision timetable is available here.
The Library or a classroom will also be open on all 4 days between 10-12 noon and 12.30-2.30 pm for general study/revision. All pupils must sign in and out at the main entrance (am and pm), before attending any of the revision classes or studying in the Library. The school is not open to pupils outwith the times of the revision sessions.
School dress code is not required but pupils should be dressed appropriately. A high standard of behaviour is expected at all times in all parts of the school. A member of the Senior Management Team will always be on duty each day.
The BBC School Report team has successfully completed their submission for News Report Day. The S2 pupils have been working extremely conscientiously to produce a news report on the "Impact of Housing Developments in Haddington".
Their news broadcast can be viewed on the BBC School Report area of the website and work is also on display in the library.
If you are making payments to the school for various activities (including Activities Week) before the Easter holidays, please could these (if paying by cash/cheque) be made by Friday 18 March 2016. This will assist the school office in end of term arrangments: cheques handed in after this may not be cashed until after the Easter Holidays, and this means no cash is in school over the holiday period for security.
The Italy Excursion has a final payment date of Wednesday 23 March 2016 - this is now extended until Wednesday 13 April 2016.
