Director’s Message:

CSA Families,

Thank you for your continued support and family involvement at Colorado SKIES Academy. Last week, our PAC (Parent Action Committee) and Watchdog programs held their first meeting. We appreciate all of you taking time out of your busy schedule to build these organizations that provide support for our learning community.

If you did not get a chance to make it to the meeting last Thursday evening, please reach out to the Watchdog Leader Chris Swathwood or share your interest through this link. The Colorado SKIES Academy PAC would also like to connect with you. PAC Co-chairs Mindy Ruffin and Dana Podell are inviting you to join them in supporting our learners and facilitators. Please email them if you are interested pac@coloradoskiesacademy.org

Friday, October 1, 2021 is official “Count Day”  for all Colorado schools.  Attendance at school that day impacts funding for CSA for the entire school year. Please make sure your learner is present that day.

As always, if I can help in any way, please let me know.
