Monday message 10.03.2022

Dear Colorado SKIES Academy Families,

It’s been a great week at Colorado SKIES! It seems impossible that we are already just 2 weeks away from finishing the first quarter of the 2022-23 school year — it seems like the days got shorter and the leaves started to change colors overnight! 

Please scroll down to see more information concerning:

  • The importance of learner attendance next week for the October Count
  • End of Quarter 1 information
  • Learner access to microwaves for lunch and snack 
  • Participation in our School Accountability Committee

As we move into our second quarter, know that we look forward to continuing to welcome and educate your children in our building every day. It’s an honor to contribute to the growth and development of so many remarkable young people!

With gratitude,

Katie Dutton

School Director
