Message from the Director, Suzanne Acheson

Hi Colorado SKIES Academy Community!

Summer swimming, camps, bike rides, and summer movies are tops on the list and will soon give way to shopping for school supplies, some school clothes, and getting our learners’ schedules acclimated to “school hours”. August 19th will be here before we know it!

I am so glad to have met so many parents at our July 23rd Parent Forum and look forward to meeting more of you on Tuesday, August 6th, at the next Parent Forum, 6:30 p.m. at Wings Blue Skies Exploration of Flight. You are an amazingly supportive community, and it is an honor to work alongside you to bring this unique learning experience to your learners.

Our facilitators will be starting with us on August 1st for professional learning and general preparation for the first day of school. Saturday, August 17th, from 1-3:30 p.m. is a time when the majority of our families can come and attend the Meet & Greet Your Facilitators.  Please mark your calendars and we will see you there!

Kind Regards,
Suzanne E. Acheson, M. Ed.
School Director
