Bulldog Blast

January 2021

Message from the Principal

Welcome back and welcome to 2021!


I hope you had a restful Winter Break and were able to spend time with friends and loved ones – even if that looked a little different than how you normally spend the holidays.


In January, scholars took the winter iReady diagnostic, which is a computer adaptive assessment that identifies students’ strengths and areas for growth in reading and math. It provides a comprehensive insight into student learning of the standards to help meet the needs of all students. Ask your child to log into iReady to see current academic levels. You might be surprised.


As we move onto the second semester, please reach out to your child’s teachers or our office if you have concerns or need assistance. We value each of you and want to make sure we are supporting our Bulldogs’ educational, as well as social and emotional, growth.


Yours in Education,

Craig Horn, Principal

Family and Community Liaison Notes

Dear Mount Auburn Preparatory Academy Families,


Parents were notified this week via robo call of the online Parent trainings starting next week. Emails will also be sent out. A schedule of those trainings will be sent home early next week and parents will be notified via email, robo call, and flyers once again. Thanks for your support of this effort. I will keep you updated on our results!
