Dear Colorado Skies Academy Families,

It is an honor to introduce myself as the Acting Director of Colorado Skies Academy and join this incredible school community. I have found that the Colorado Skies Academy’s mission and vision have set the pathway for learners to have outstanding learning experiences. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to continue to partner with the CSA community and the world-class learning environment.

CSA learners, I cannot wait to greet you on the first day of school, August 14th! I hope that you are excited about this coming school year and that you are enjoying summer break with your family, learning something new, reading a good book, and spending time with friends and family. It is going to be a great year learning together. I look forward to saying hi to many of you at our upcoming Summer Family Nights starting Wednesday, June 7th.

In closing, please know that you are always welcome at CSA. Parents and family are a big part of our school community. Your input and involvement are needed to bring CSA to the next level. Please feel free to reach out to me if I can assist you in any way.
