FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL
Dear Academy Families,
Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Knowing what's right doesn't mean much unless you do what's right.”  Seems so simple, but yet so difficult at times. When I was in 8th grade, I was targeted by a group of girls. They made my day to day absolutely miserable.  I just remember getting off the bus, taking a deep breath knowing any second the awfulness would begin.  The name-calling, the isolation, the looks. It seemed endless and very lonely.     [Click here to read more.]
PROGRESS REPORTS and CONFERENCES
    
Progress Reports will be posted in NetClassroom on Friday, 10/21. A progress report is issued at the midpoint of a marking period. Parent/Teacher conferences coicide with the release of progress reports so that your attention is drawn to anything which might need to be addressed before the final grade is assigned at the end of the First Trimester. SEA uses Signup Genius to invite you to arrange your conference schedule. You do not need to make any appointments unless the progress report notes indicate so. Conferences for JK-3 students are 20 minutes. Grades 4-8 are 10 minutes.  Conferences are 5-7pm on Thursday, 11/3 and 8am-2pm on Friday, 11/4.
