Mark your calendars for the Wildcat Glow Run fundraiser kicking off soon!

We look forward to sharing this opportunity with you. Thank you for your support and commitment to our students and community!

Cafeteria Menu Update

Thank you for your patience with our posted breakfast and lunch menus. We continue to experience supply chain issues where orders do not get delivered, a different product is delivered, or the right product arrives but with the incorrect quantity.

Our cafeteria staff is doing a fantastic job making sure our students do not go hungry, even if that means a last-minute menu change.

3-8 Spelling Bee Winners

Congratulations to Alan Ramos, grade 5, for claiming 1st place during the 3-5 spelling bee. Ryan Kiyama, grade 8, took the top spot overall and will represent The Academy during the Colorado State Spelling Bee next month.

Secondary Course Selection Process

During Pride and Advisory, the Counseling Department is working with students to help them learn more about the course selection process. During this time, students are presented with their options in which classes they can participate in next fall.

The week of February 20, students will register for their classes. All information about course selection will be posted on their counseling Google Classroom (or their Pride Time Google Classroom if in grade 8). We encourage families to reach out and connect with their students about the courses they are thinking about taking. Counselors are available during Student-Led conferences if you would like to schedule a meeting.
