Dear Colorado SKIES Academy Parents and Supporters,

Please help us in welcoming our growing team of expert educators! We hope you enjoy getting to know our new facilitators through our staff spotlight announcements. Welcome to the team, Aubree Keys, Language Arts; Jennifer Pinnell, Math & Science; and Jason Brockman, Social Sciences. You can check out their spotlights below. We’ll be introducing a few more members of our team next week, so stay tuned for more announcements.

Also, please spread the word that we still have seats available for our August 19th launch! Be sure to help us soar in our inaugural year by having conversations with friends, family, and coworkers. Ask them to check us out at coloradoskiesacademy.org or pull up our website and show them what we are all about!

On that note, our revamped website launched a few weeks ago. If you’ve visited coloradoskiesadcademy.org in the past, make sure to clear your web browser’s cache before visiting the new site to ensure that it displays properly.

As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email zach.vine@coloradoskiesacademy.org.

Thank you so much for your support. I look forward to meeting you soon.

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