Secondary Back to School Night
Academy Families:

Back to School Night for Secondary Students (7-12) will be held on Tuesday, August 26, from 6 to 8 PM.  The purpose of this event is for parents and guardians to be able to meet their child’s teacher and become familiar with classroom expectations.

The schedule for the evening is as follows:
6:00 to 6:20 – Welcome Assembly in the South Gym, led by Mrs. Florita and Mr. Clark
6:20 to 7:30 – Open House.  
7:30 to 8:00 – Reception in the South Gym.  Refreshments and cookies served.

The event this year offers a different format from years past in order to offer a more efficient and productive evening.  The open house portion will serve as a meet and greet with the teachers and allow parents and guardians the freedom to prioritize and focus on classes they may have particular questions for.  If you feel additional discussion is needed with a particular teacher regarding your student’s needs please set an appointment so that you may discuss at a later date.  All teachers will have syllabi and contact information available in their classrooms.  Teachers will also be available for conversation during the reception.
This will be a fantastic evening to meet all of your student’s teachers, see where they will spending their days, and formally kick of the 2014-2015 school year.

See you next Tuesday!

RTD, Road & Housing Construction Update​
Good morning, Wildcats.  As I stated in my communication last week, I am meeting with the Colorado Department of Transportation each week for updates on the construction project currently taking place at the intersection of 120th Avenue and Lowell Boulevard.

At this morning's meeting, CDOT confirmed that turn lanes on to and off of Lowell will be open during our pick up and drop off times.  Even with this commitment, still expect an impact on our traffic flow and please plan accordingly to allow extra time.

I have had many questions from parents of students who ride RTD.  The RTD route that previously stopped at the shelter at 120th and Lowell still stops at that location, however, this means riders are walking through some construction to get to the school.  CDOT stated this morning that the permanent bus stop will be reopened within the next three weeks.  Until then, we recommend using the stop located at the intersection of 120th and Bradburn and then walking through the Bradburn neighborhood to the school. This would allow students to avoid walking through both the 120th and Lowell project and the housing project currently working on the east end of the Bradburn neighborhood near the school.  Again, RTD still stops at 120th and Lowell, but until the permanent bus stop is reopened, the safer option is getting off at 120th and Bradburn.  

If you have any questions, feel to contact me at  Thank you and have a great day.

Secondary Lockers
Good afternoon, Wildcats

Even if their schedule did not list a locker, each student on the secondary side has been assigned one.  When students pick up their schedules on the first day of classes, locker numbers and combinations will be listed on the schedule page or alternate measures will be taken by Academy administration to pass along this information.  If there are issues with your student’s locker, please have them fill out a locker maintenance form in the main office or during Pride Time the first week of school.  Change requests for upper or lower lockers are fulfilled on a need basis first.

Back to School Night-Secondary
Also, as part of our change to our new authorizer (Charter School Institute) we have also moved to a different Student Information System called PowerSchool.  PowerSchool contains most of the same features you were accustomed to such as checking grades and attendance.  The staff has been working hard to get all of the student information, schedules, and records switched over to the new system, but as always with something new, we expect surprises and glitches.   Login information and parent instructions for logging on to the system will go out as soon as we have the system up and running.
