Dear Colorado Skies Academy Families,

Congratulations to the Foxtrot Squadron, who has been named our Honor Squadron this month for earning the most points during March! Way to go, everyone!

This week is one of the most important weeks of the year, as we will be conducting the bulk of our CMAS testing. While there may be reasons to exempt your learner from testing, please think carefully before doing so.

Not only is the high-stakes experience valuable for all learners, but as a school, we rely on the data provided to set the course for our school and identify areas of improvement. Additionally, there are many grants and other funding opportunities that require a high percentage of participation on the CMAS tests, and if we do not hit these high percentages, we are no longer eligible for these funds. If at all possible, we strongly encourage every CSA student to participate in testing.

Thank you in advance for your support! You can find more details about the testing schedule and expectations in the “CMAS Information” article below. Please check out the “Upcoming Events” calendar as well as the detailed articles below for more information regarding:

  • CMAS Information
  • Nothing Bundt Cakes Fundraiser
  • Annual Parent Survey Reminder
  • Thought of the Week

Thank you for your attention to these important issues. As always, feel free to reach out to me with additional questions and concerns!

Sincerely, Katie
