Dear ACE Family,


Thank you for ending the year in such a positive way. We are excited that our students will have many summer opportunities to continue learning. There have been so many successes this year. We cannot wait to share updates throughout the summer related to attendance data, discipline data, and test scores.


We are so grateful for your service and send many wishes for a restful and rejuvenating summer. You have led remarkable transformation this year and Accelerated Campus Excellence! We see so much promise on the horizon and look forward to welcoming everyone back in August ready to take on the new year!


Courage:


It was always going to be about courage.

It was always going to be about sacrifice . . .

. . . about near-impossible odds . . .and hope . . .

About a journey few would dare to brave,

A risk to leave familiar shores

To face the darkness and rough waters.

It was always going to be about courage,

To persevere and stay the course

And show the mettle of leadership

When all about is storm-tossed

And filled with doubt or fear.

To you is left only the quiet of the night,

To rekindle strength all but spent

And the early morning just before dawn

Surveying the horizon

And with the first glint of morning

Knowing that your destination is ever drawing near.

And should we reach our destination still standing,

knowing in our hearts what it really took,

without fanfare or reward, we will look across the way to each other

and say, simply, well done.


Happy Summer,


ACE Core Team
