Rigor, Relevance and Relationships


A note from Associate Principal, Mrs. Pethtel

Hello SSAE families,

Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday break and that our students are rested and eager to get the 2nd semester underway. We are very proud of the grit and determination our students showed at the end of last semester, and their academic success was impressive. Our staff is excited to be back at school, and we spent some time together last week participating in professional development as well as collaboration and planning for an exciting spring semester. There will be some fun cross-curricular projects as well as authentic learning experiences for students to engage in this semester on campus. I have personally enjoyed the opportunity to meet and talk with students during the high school and middle school Pizza with the Principal lunches. It is a wonderful experience to hear feedback from our students that we can use to confirm our ideas and ways to improve as a school. If your student has not had an opportunity to sign up for this monthly lunch with me, please have them check their emails for a sign-up link. This month begins our enrollment season for next fall so if you have any families that you would like to refer to SSAE for next year, please share with them this link to our website on our enrollment process: SSAE Enrollment Webpage The process begins with a meet and greet session and they can sign up on the link above. We are very thankful for our community at Springs Studio and wish you a healthy, happy, and successful new year!

Thank you for your continued support,

Amanda Pethtel

Associate Principal

Snow Day/2-hour Delay Information

Campus Families,

Good Morning. I wasn't sure when or if we would need to send out this email because Colorado weather has been so mild this year. Due to some changes at the district level, we have refined our campus's Inclement Weather Policies. The policy is updated for both SSAE and PPEC and is located on each school's website. I have included links for families to review and bookmark if we shift in our weather patterns and start acting more like Colorado weather.

Additionally, as colder weather approaches, be aware that the earliest we will guarantee a licensed staff will be on campus is 7:15 am. Please know that we never leave students out in the cold, but occasionally we have off-campus meetings, and there may not be someone on campus until 7:15. I am an early riser, so it is rarely an issue. We usually have licensed staff on campus before 7:15 am. Our custodians and hourly employees, such as secretarial, health care, and support coaches, cannot supervise students without licensed staff on campus. Thank you for understanding and being proactive to ensure that all students are safe every morning. As always, please let us know if you have any questions. Have a wonderful day.
