Dear Colorado SKIES Academy Families,

We hope that everyone had a joyous and restful Fall Break and Thanksgiving holiday. We are excited to see our learners back at CSA, hear about their adventures, and continue facilitating their educational journey this week.

It's that time of year! Can you believe that we are already starting to prepare for the 2024-25 School Year!? We need our CURRENT CSA Families to complete the Intent to Return/Not Return process. This form needs to be completed by December 31, 2023. This information will help our Leadership Team plan for the new school year in regard to budgeting, facility use, staffing, and more. This process also helps us know how many new learners spots will be available for the upcoming school year, in order to invite new learners during the Open Enrollment Window in January. To read more about the CSA Enrollment Policy and timeline, please click here. 

Thank you to those of you who provided feedback about the field trip to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science the week before Fall Break. We always appreciate hearing what you enjoyed and also what you think can be improved upon. We are taking all feedback into consideration for future field trip planning.

Please enjoy the main image collage of Veteran's Day and Diwali celebrations at CSA. Also, please read the articles in this week’s message including an update from Coach Cronin about Athletic Development, the many ways to support CSA, a reminder about the Wingman for a Day program, a recap of the After School Clubs, and details about upcoming events.

In gratitude, Directors Coryell and Motley
