Jason Knott


I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to JC McKenna Middle School!  I was hired as the principal of JC McKenna in March of 2014, after spending the previous 15 years as an educator in the Edgerton School District. My wife Emily, who is a teacher, and I have three daughters and a son, Kendall-6, Kamryn-5,  Karsyn-3, and Anthony – 2 months. We moved to Evansville to take advantage of the excellent opportunities offered by the Evansville School District, and we are excited to watch as our children grow and progress through the Evansville School District.  The Evansville Community has been and continues to be a wonderful place to raise children!

The ECSD has an outstanding reputation, and I am proud to be part of such a wonderful school system.  In my time here, I have found the middle school to be  wonderful children who are willing to learn, supportive parents/guardians that show an interest in their children's education, and a caring, dedicated staff committed to providing the students with a quality education which addresses both the social and academic needs our all of our children. We make a commitment to the Evansville Community that your children will always come first at JC McKenna. We are all committed to bringing your children an unforgettable and enlightening experience. Building positive relationships with children is essential to student progress, and here at JC McKenna Middle School, it's what we do best! 

I would like to encourage each parent/guardian to take an active role in your child's education. We realize that many of you lead busy lives, and it is often difficult to volunteer at school. However, taking just a few minutes in the evening to read to your child, talk with your child about school, or simply see that your child is organized for the next school day will reap countless rewards.  If you’re looking for volunteer opportunities within the school, please contact me to discuss the variety of options.  Let's work together to make the 2016-17 school year a memorable one!

Please feel free to contact any of us at JC McKenna if you would like more information about programs or opportunities for families at our school.
