Phoenix Academy High School Students and Parents:
I would like to start this letter with just saying welcome to each of you. On behalf of our school family I am taking this opportunity to thank you for the trust you are providing to each of us in ensuring the academic success of your child.
As always, we are continually making additional changes to our program in order to better serve your child. During the past school year we were able to start our evening program (SPIRE). The program targets students facing the serious possiblity of dropping out of school. Even though the program was implemented in March of 2018 we were able to ensure two students returned to school and graduated in our June 2018 ceremony. In addition, we continued to build on the past year's acceleration class in order to enhance our students' performance in the areas of math and literacy. Of course, we continued to work with many of the local organizations to bring additional opportunities and new experiences for our students and will continue to follow this path during the upcoming school year.
Now I would like to make one plea to each of you. In order for us to maximize the effectiveness of the time we have with your child, we need each student at the school everyday. Please make every effort possible to ensure your child attends school and attends regularly. This is an area that has cost too many of the children we serve in their potential growth. It is also an area, where you as the parent have the most influence. Please partner with us as we strive to make this a worthwhile learning environment.
Finally, as I say each year, we would like for each of our students to know we care deeply about each of them. Every decision and action we take will be done with your welfare at the foremost thought in our minds. We look forward to serving you and being your support as you strive toward your dreams. Welcome to Phoenix Academy High School and have a great 2018—2019 school year.
