The EAFK is a ceremony to honor those showing the character trait for that month. It was the kick-off to our displaying good character program. A real live joust with knights and horses performed at KIS. Their message was that knights serve others and are honorable men full of great character. We will be knighted if we are models of good character.
The class votes on who shows that trait, which is currently friendship. Then the knights come back and knight you.
When the knights came to KIS they each had their colors: green, blue, and black. They had various contests to show their skills as a knight. The fifth grade cheered for the green knight, and the sixth grade cheered for the black knight.
Here is one interview from an anonymous person:
Q: What did you think of the joust?
A: It was fun and the knights were courteous.
Q: If you could remake the joust, how would you want it to be?
A: I would want the knights to be tougher, but not where they would be hurt.
Q: What was the strangest part?
A: When the black knight cheated it seemed like it was rigged.
