A BIG thank you to everyone who came out for Parent Weekend and to the Fine Arts shows. It was wonderful to see the conversation, the support and the parental enthusiasm over awards and the students’ hard work displayed.
This past week, both schools were able to go to the Family History Center in Salt Lake City. They were able to find distant ancestors, famous relatives and even found that some students were related to staff! The guides at the Center remarked that the boys’ school was the most well behaved youth group they had ever had! Thank you again for setting those accounts up. We are excited for our writing projects coming up.
A few items of business:
- We have updated our “About Us” section with all of the Education Department’s emails, so you can have more personal communication with the teachers. Please allow 3-5 business days for a response as our teachers are busy sculpting minds and grading towers of homework! We hope that this will be a helpful tool to a more transparent and open communication.
- The Academic Calendar has also been updated to accommodate the new Parent Weekend dates in 2019! So, take a look and download a copy for yourself. It is very helpful and important that home passes be coordinated with the break schedule for school, as to help our students be successful and not fall behind, as it is sometimes hard and overwhelming for them when such occasions occur.
We look forward to seeing you soon! Until then enjoy this recap of our year at Maple Lake Academy.
