2/7/2021 - Don't Stop Now!

Hello Families! This time of year is tough, every year, for everyone. Winter days and months, 3rd quarter feels long, many days of class with limited breaks. No one is alone, parents, teachers, scholars. BUT WE GOT THIS!!! Please encourage your scholar to keep pushing! We are here to continue supporting in any way as well!

We are about half way through 3rd quarter so interims will be out by the end of this week. We are also having Parent/Teacher Conferences this Thursday and Friday (information and sign-ups below). You have also seen that a decision has been made to begin a hybrid schedule starting Monday, March 1st (Letter from our Regional Manager below)


Please be aware of 3 things, prior to this date:

1. We truly need you to complete the survey so we can have an accurate count on who wants to attend class in-person or remain virtual. A+AA Scholar Learning Declaration Survey


We are making some changes to the hybrid scheduling:

2. 8th grade ONLY will attend Mondays and Tuesdays

7th grade ONLY will attend Thursdays and Fridays.

This change is necessary so that there is less interruption to your scholars academic schedule.


3. We will NOT be using the last schedule created. We will send out the new hybrid schedule soon. We promise our goal is to help remain as consistent as possible and these changes will make the transition much easier for every scholar.


PLEASE NOTE - No changes to the schedule will be made prior to March 1st. Keep moving along with the schedule we have been using since August. Thank you!


LET'S CELEBRATE!!!!! We have an all-call system again! We will be able to give you real-time text updates. We don't want to lose anyone due to miss communication. We know your time is valuable and confusions interrupt too much in our lives.


Please Remember:


**Teacher's are offering ways for scholar's to improve their grades when in attendance.**


** Your scholar can get homework help in our after school program Monday through Friday from 2:45 - 4:00. Information below**
