Meet The Teacher Night will be called Meet The Leader Night. At Charles Acton Leadership Academy, everyone is a leader! So on this night, you will have an opportunity to meet the leaders of your child's school: the principal, assistant principal, counselor, teacher, and others. We will also have the privilege of meeting the young leaders you are bringing to us for an education. Our theme for this year is "Leaders: The Real Superheroes!" Our year will be full of learning about and using our leadership superpower. Please read the newsletter below for details to help make this night a success. We look forward to meeting all of you!

Meet Your Child's Teacher

Students who enrolled early will have an opportunity to meet their child's teacher during this event. Students who have recently enrolled or still need to enroll may/may not be able to meet their child's teacher during this event. If you are present and we are unable to assign your child to a class before the end of the event, we will be sure they are assigned before the first day of school.


During the event, be sure to communicate with your child's teacher about the following:

  • arrival - how will your child get to school
  • dismissal - how will your child go home each day. Pick up your dismissal tags. PK through 1st grade students are dismissed via bus/day care or carline only. PK-1st grade will not be dismissed with the walkers. Siblings will be grouped for pick up with their youngest sibling.
  • medical needs - are there any medical needs your child will have while at school (also visit the nurse's station).
  • school supplies - click the links to see the lists (english) (spanish) Label ALL ITEMS w/a permanent marker. This is the best night to bring all or as many supplies as possible.
