Dear Colorado SKIES Academy Parents and Supporters,

As we approach the start of the school year,  I want you to know that I’m here to help should you have any questions, comments, or concerns. Whether you’re thinking about curriculum and instruction, before and after-school programming, school supplies, and technology, or anything else that comes to mind, please reach out so that I can help.

This week, I’m pleased to announce the addition of another facilitator, Holly Pierce, who brings to CSA a wealth of experience in teaching science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), as well as expertise with project-based learning (PBL). You can check out Holly’s bio in this week’s Monday Message.

As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email

Your support is very much appreciated, and I look forward to meeting you soon.

Warm Regards,
Zach Vine M.Ed, Director of Staff and Learner Programs
