Dear Colorado Skies Academy Families,

Thank you to each and every family for helping our first week of CMAS testing go as smoothly as possible! I would like to publicly recognize our staff, as they have worked incredibly hard and done a fantastic job! Special thanks to Meredith Motley who acted as the School Assessment Coordinator this year.

Despite a few challenges thrown our way, testing went extremely well and the bulk of testing has been completed. This week we will pull learners for makeup testing as well as have our 8th graders take the Science tests on Monday and Tuesday (see the article below for more detailed information). Keep up the great work, everyone!

The Spirit Wear Sale is happening April 8th- 10th! We have almost reached our goal of $1,000 sold. When we reach our goal, CSA will receive a 10% donation from the company that creates our spirit wear, so get your orders in soon.  Please visit to order!

Please check out the “Upcoming Events” calendar as well as the detailed articles below for more information regarding:

  • CMAS Testing Information
  • Nothing Bundt Cakes Fundraiser - winners will be announced the week of 4/10!
  • 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
