Principal Letter

Good afternoon families!

We had a great “official” first week of school! It has been great seeing our students in person each day! We finished our Culture Camp this week and our students are working super hard on meeting our high expectations that we have in our building. Teachers created robust and engaging activities for students and they had a blast! Culture drives everything that we do so it is critical that culture is strong in each classroom. Please make sure to ask your child what the expectations are in his/her classroom and what they are doing to get their Dojo Points/Dollars each day. We use Class Dojo to reward our students each day. Students get a minimum of 5 points each day and are able to earn additional points/dollars for going above and beyond. We connect these ideal behaviors with our key pillars. (Ignite, Inspire, Empower, Lead).

On Thursday, we started instruction in all of our classrooms. It was great seeing students push themselves to master key foundational concepts. You will see that a tracker (located in take home folder) went home on Friday and it will include important academic information for the week as well as behavior updates each week. Please read the student handbook to see what our Positive Behavior Management System looks like in our building. Culture is everything and we focus on recognizing the positive behaviors that we see each day. We do hold super high expectations for our students and practice these skills each day. 🙂

We have a lot coming up over the next couple of weeks so please mark your calendars!

Please read over carefully. 🙂

Reach out if you need anything at all!

The ACCEL Schools Difference

We are a proud member of ACCEL Schools—a public charter school network serving thousands of PK-12 students throughout the United States. ACCEL was founded in 2012 by the early pioneers of online learning. Our leadership believes that all children, regardless of location or socio-economic background, deserve a quality education that prepares them to succeed in school and become productive global citizens.  

ACCEL Schools Instructional Model provides: 

  • Aligned Academics meet or exceed state standards ensuring your child is on track for rigorous college and career opportunities.    
  • Certified, Licensed Teachers and a student-centered staff are united in executing our mission to make a difference in the life trajectory of each student.    
  • More Time on Task and double the instructional minutes for ELA and Math maximizes learning in your child’s school day.   
  • Short Cycle Assessments keep track of how students are progressing in the program, giving teachers ongoing feedback so they can tailor instruction to your student’s needs.    
  • Individualized Instruction driven by assessment data means we are familiar with the needs of each child and set students up for success in each course of study.    
  • State Testing Preparation reduces the anxiety often associated with high stakes tests, helping our teachers and students feel confident with the structure and methodology of state exams.    
  • Academic Support including education technology, interventional specialists, and instructional aides assist students during the school day. After school tutoring, summer school, and Saturday school programs extend support services beyond the traditional school day and year.   
  • Extracurricular Courses & Activities round out our educational offerings providing students social-emotional learning, athletics, arts, service learning & more.
