Monday message 08.22.2022

Dear Colorado SKIES Academy Families,

We had a great time welcoming our learners back into the building last week! It’s always fun to remember why we all chose education as we get to know our learners and how they’ve grown and changed over the summer — as well as welcoming our new community members.

There were certainly some challenges along the way, both expected (like difficulties with PowerSchool and communications systems) and unexpected (like the district’s struggles with the lunch accounts or our learner photos taking longer than usual due to technical difficulties), but we made it through — and things will only get better from here!

CSA School Director
