Lead Academy Weekly News 1-5-20
Happy New Year!
Where did 2019 go?! We hope everyone had a great winter break and enjoyed some down time and time with family and friends. As we head into 2020, we are expecting big things in the form of growth in students, teachers and staff in both academics and culture. We ended 2019 on a high note with students completing winter MAP testing and showing some of the highest growth we've ever seen on MAP testing. This shows the hard work teachers and students have been putting in are paying off. We are looking forward to a fantastic 2020!
Celebrations of Learning
Mid-year celebrations of learning are coming up soon. Look for a post this week with finalized dates and times for each grade level's COL.
Upcoming Student Holidays
Just a reminder we will not have school on 1/17 or 1/20. These days are a teacher workday and MLK Day.
Just a reminder that only Lead Academy jackets may be worn inside the building. Students may wear any jacket outside. If you need to purchase a jacket, please contact Mrs. Steadman.
Our policy for outside play during cold times is 40 degrees. It must be 40 or above for students to go outside for classes or recess.
School Fees and Balances
As a charter school, we operate off a very tight budget and every dollar counts. We maximize every dollar to have direct impact on students. With that said, it is very important that all school fees and lunch balances are taken care of in a timely fashion. Notices are sent home frequently as a reminder. Currently, any student with a negative balance of more than $50 will have all money turned into the front office (field trips, events, and other fees) applied directly to that debt first per board policy. Our board is also working on an updated debt policy which will be published in October. Anytime you need assistance or a payment plan, please reach out to us and we will work something out. If you have questions, please let us know.
