  • Results from annual Sixth Grade Showcase

    Sixth grade students from across Knox County were in the spotlight Saturday as they demonstrated their skills and knowledge in the annual Sixth Grade Showcase.

    The Sixth Grade Showcase is an academic event designed to provide a competitive opportunity for Kentucky’s sixth graders, who are sometimes “lost” between elementary (4-5) and middle grades (6-8) Governor’s Cup competition.  The format of the showcase follows that of Governor’s Cup, with students competing in one of five written assessments (mathematics, science, social studies, Language Arts, arts/humanities), in quick recall, and/or in composition.

    Photos from the event are available in the KCPS Photo Gallery at http://media.knoxkyschools.com/photo-gallery/6th-grade-showcase-december-3-2016/
