Director’s Message

CSA Families,

 On behalf of Colorado SKIES Academy, we would like to welcome everyone back from fall break. We hope you had some time to relax, enjoy the beautiful fall weather and reconnect as a family. Monday will be the first day of the second quarter at CSA. We have some exciting opportunities planned for our learners during the second quarter, including creative electives, passion projects, ground school, and World Languages (Japanese and Spanish). Our focus will be to continue to provide project-based learning experiences that highlight aerospace. We are committed to continued improvements for your learner. 

 During Quarter 2, some of our learners will be invited to change squadrons to meet their learning interests and opportunities. We understand that a squadron change is not always welcomed or best for all learners and will be taking some time to partner with learners to discuss the option of changing squadrons.   

 Questions about report cards? CSA facilitators and staff are always available for conferences. We want to make sure your questions, concerns, and suggestions are heard. Meeting together in person, by phone, or on Zoom can create a better partnership. If you are interested in a conference, we encourage you to reach out to your learner’s facilitator by email. The list of their emails can be found here.  CSA Staff Emails

 We appreciate your willingness to provide feedback, ask questions and join the conversation to improve CSA. Please let me know if I can assist you in any way.
