Colorado SKIES Academy learners tour DC3

Dear Colorado SKIES Academy Families,

Thank you for honoring CSA staff with gifts, treats and inspiring messages in celebration of National Staff Appreciation Week last week. 

Colorado SKIES Academy learners participate in Color RunFriday, April 30, was the perfect day for CSA learners to Paint the Skies. The Color Run fundraiser is a yearly event to promote a healthy lifestyle and raise funds for ongoing school programs and projects. Congratulations to the top three CSA fundraisers: Tyler Coryell (first place), Marlo Steen (second place), and Dean Koutouras (third place). Thank you, families, parents, facilitators, and learners, for a great day. Over $12,000 was raised for CSA!

8th Grade Graduation & Celebration 

As the school year winds down, we are looking forward to some well-deserved celebrations. Friday, May 21, will be the final day of school for all 8th graders, and their graduation will be the same day at 1:30 p.m. at Wings Over the Rockies. Families planning to attend this event should look for detailed communication regarding participation.

A special celebration has been organized for our 8th graders on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, at Boondocks. Transportation will be provided from CSA to Boondocks. A bus will leave CSA at 11:30 a.m. Parents will need to pick up learners from Boondocks by 4:00 p.m. Chaperones are needed for this event. Please contact Teresa at the CSA office to join the fun as a volunteer.

MAP Testing

CSA learners will be participating in MAP Testing on May 17, 19, and 20. MAP testing is a norm-referenced assessment used to demonstrate growth in reading, language arts, and math over the school year. Parents and families will be receiving MAP results as part of each learner’s final report of process. These will come home with their report cards.

Save the Date: Presentations of Learning

All CSA learners will participate in fourth quarter virtual Presentations of Learning (POLs) on Friday, May 14, 2021. Please check with your child’s facilitator to get the Zoom link for this event.

Reminder: Assignment Deadline

All fourth quarter assignments are due on Friday, May 17.

Chromebook Return

Each learner will need to return their Chromebook in order to graduate and/or receive a report card!

  • May 20: 8th graders return Chromebooks.
  • May 26: 6th-7th graders return Chromebooks.

With appreciation and gratitude,
