Dear Colorado Skies Academy Families,

I hope that you and your family are enjoying the longer days and warmer weather as we move toward the summer months!

Our 7th-grade class has a field trip on Monday, May 1 from 10 am-5 pm. They will attend the 2030 Shades of Blue Airline Symposium at the Lowry campus of Wings Over the Rockies. This is a great opportunity that was gifted to our 7th graders by Board member Mark Van Tine, and we are excited for our students to participate!

  • Parents must arrange transportation for their learner(s)
  • Drop off at 10 am at the front of the building
  • The event ends at 5 pm, but parents are welcome to pick up their learner(s) at any time - please text your child and have them show their phone to the staff chaperones for verification so your child is waiting for you when you arrive
  • There will be no 7th-grade classes at CSA on Monday due to the trip. If your child will not be attending the field trip, please use the Report an Absence form to excuse their absence

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

  • Carline Updates
  • Response Requested: Start Times
  • MAP Testing
  • New Fundraising Opportunity: American Furniture Warehouse
  • 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
