Skagit Academy Tuesday Talk

November 9, 2021 - Week 10

PRINCIPAL'S CORNER- NOVEMBER 2021

Welcome to fall and all the change it brings. The weather and daylight hours have changed, the holiday season is upon us, and students are finishing the 1st quarter of the school year. There is much to celebrate and be grateful for even in these ongoing uncertain times.


My gratitude extends to students and staff. Our students at Skagit Academy continue to show kindness and respect for each other. They demonstrate valuable leadership in our school community. They continue to inspire us with their curiosity and love of learning.


Our teachers, secretaries, para educator, custodians, and counselor are among the most caring and dedicated people I’ve known. They communicate and collaborate to support all our students.


Finally, our families are an integral and important part of the team that makes Skagit Academy such a special place. Their commitment to student learning and to working with school staff makes us all better at what we do.


In gratitude,


Kecia Fox

Principal

Fritz Scholder, Native Amerian Artist, Changed the World of Art

“One color by itself is pretty blah. I don’t care what color you take. It’s when you put the second color next to the first color that, then things start to happen, and you get vibrations, you get, when you get purple next to an orange, things are going to happen.”
