Welcome to uKnighted, the Parent Teacher Organization at Blessed Sacrament Huguenot. We believe that the best education of each individual student happens with a partnership between home and school. uKnighted organizes events for teachers and students throughout the year and also provides support to teachers and administrators as needs arise. Everyone is enthusiastically welcomed when volunteering for events around campus!
