Director’s Message

CSA Families, 

We are so proud of our learners. Our 7th and 8th graders shined this week as they shared their POLs (Presentations of Learning) at Wings – Exploration of Flight. 

As part of the CSA project-based learning process, learners create and share Presentations of Learning (POL). The POL is an opportunity for learners to showcase and reflect on their achievement and growth through the completion of the project. POLs are also an opportunity for learners to exhibit their creativity and design thinking, present the outcome of their efforts, and celebrate their academic successes.

Thank you, learners, facilitators, staff members and families for your contribution and support with the Colorado SKIES Academy project-based learning process. 

This week, our learners planned and organized a Costume Contest. This school activity was a student-led project.  We want to thank and celebrate our learners for all their work to provide a fun event for CSA.  Families THANK YOU for your donations and for supporting this learner activity on such short notice.   

A couple more things:

Join the PAC? 

The PAC is officially up and running. They meet every Wednesday at 9 am at the school. If you are interested please feel free to join them! 

Student Body Representatives! 

The PAC is looking to start Student Body Representatives to help bring the learners wants to life in their school.

Thank you for all of your support and collaboration.
