Newsletters – March 2023

A few words from the principal…..

This month we are celebrating reading. We have kicked the month off by inviting all the parents to come read with their students and create fun arts and crafts. Thank you to all of those that came this week.

The month of March, grades will be competing against each other to see who can read the most books. 3rd and 4th grade students have access to an app called EPIC. This app will allow them to read a book each night. K-2 students will be able to read books, on their level, on the Reading World app. Even though I do enjoy going to the library, I love the fact that I can go online and read any book I want from the public library. Plus, this way I won’t turn the book in late. Spring Break is the perfect time to read the day away!

I am blessed to work with a caring staff that is always there for their students. Each month we get to celebrate one staff member’s achievements. That is just way too hard. For the month of January Ms. Cook and for February, Mrs. Nejvara.

IMPORTANT DATES TO REMEMBER

  • 3/10/23 – No School for students
  • 3/13- 3/17 Spirit Week
  • 3/20-3/24 Spring Break
  • 3/17 – all reenrollment forms due

Reenrollment forms have been sent home, along with bus forms for next year. Please fill them out and return them to the teacher, with a Proof of Residency (POR). The class with the most forms turned in (with POR) gets to pick their prize of choice.

April is State Testing month. Third grade will have their final chance to take their Reading Assessment. Fourth grade will take Reading, Math and Social Studies. I will send more information home closer to the first of April.

From the Desk of Mrs. Szych

Hello TPA Families!!

December is a short month, but there is a lot going on. At the Middle School we have a door decorating contest, spirit week, I-Ready testing, holiday parties, spelling bees, and more! We are also very busy planning for some exciting changes coming during second semester.

We’ve had a couple of staff adjustments over the last few weeks, and Ms. Kinnie is now teaching 7th and 8th grade Math. Remember…you can check your students’ grades anytime in PowerSchool. All students brought home instructions, but please let us know if you need help accessing grade.

I hope that you all have a wonderful holiday season!


From the Desk of Mrs. Garcia

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Glitter, Little Debbie Christmas snacks, and jingle bells rocking around the Christmas tree.

The Lil Shoppe opened today for the students to shop. Gifts from $.50 to $10.00. I had fun shopping with the students today. You will be happy to know they tell me exactly what you like. Well sometimes they say you like slime and I redirect them.

Staff will take students shopping before school. A parent night is Thursday, December 8 from 3:45-5:30.

We are having a canned food drive and home essentials for different groups. Please send in any donations by Wednesday, December 14th . We are having a contest between the classes.

Please come enjoy the sounds of the holidays, Friday, December 16th starting at 9:30. Students can leave with their parents after the concert. A permission slip is being sent home next week for parents to sign if they are going to go home with you. I am trying to stop the long line we experienced at the awards ceremony.

K-2 please make sure you are using the Tinyivy app to have your students read nightly. They have access to an endless range of books, for free. No trip to the library or the chance of books being eaten by the dog. In my house the
cats eat the books.

Personally, I would like to thank all the parents for your patience with bussing and dismissal. I am talking with Rock Solid to make sure that they can plow the alley so you won’t get stuck in the snow during the winter.

I want to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year.

The ACCEL Schools Difference

We are a proud member of ACCEL Schools—a public charter school network serving thousands of PK-12 students throughout the United States. ACCEL was founded in 2012 by the early pioneers of online learning. Our leadership believes that all children, regardless of location or socio-economic background, deserve a quality education that prepares them to succeed in school and become productive global citizens.  

ACCEL Schools Instructional Model provides: 

  • Aligned Academics meet or exceed state standards ensuring your child is on track for rigorous college and career opportunities.    
  • Certified, Licensed Teachers and a student-centered staff are united in executing our mission to make a difference in the life trajectory of each student.    
  • More Time on Task and double the instructional minutes for ELA and Math maximizes learning in your child’s school day.   
  • Short Cycle Assessments keep track of how students are progressing in the program, giving teachers ongoing feedback so they can tailor instruction to your student’s needs.    
  • Individualized Instruction driven by assessment data means we are familiar with the needs of each child and set students up for success in each course of study.    
  • State Testing Preparation reduces the anxiety often associated with high stakes tests, helping our teachers and students feel confident with the structure and methodology of state exams.    
  • Academic Support including education technology, interventional specialists, and instructional aides assist students during the school day. After school tutoring, summer school, and Saturday school programs extend support services beyond the traditional school day and year.   
  • Extracurricular Courses & Activities round out our educational offerings providing students social-emotional learning, athletics, arts, service learning & more.

Statement Regarding the Death of George Floyd

Dear ACCEL Staff & Community,

The horrific death of George Floyd coupled with other events that recently occurred in this country are heartbreaking. The video of his death is one of the most horrifying things we have seen in our lives. We grieve. We also acknowledge that many of our employees and students have experienced racism firsthand. This tragedy serves as a grim reminder that as a society, we still have a long way to go to stomp out racism. We want to make it clear that we are committed to fighting against racism and discrimination, and want to assure you that it has no place in our company or at our schools, and it will not be tolerated. We must strive to be inclusive in every way, and we will be planning professional development programs on this topic which will be delivered this summer to our entire school and corporate staff.

We also believe we have an obligation beyond what most companies have. We have consciously chosen to manage schools in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the country and the world. While many school operators avoid these areas, we seek them out. To our surprise and dismay, we are often asked why. The answer is simple. We want to help the children who need it most. Maria and I set out to do this when we founded the company and we have never wavered. If our company does not provide our most vulnerable students with a quality education, they may not have a chance at economic success. A society that does not give every child this chance is, by definition, unjust. The opportunity to succeed must exist regardless of a child’s skin color or economic situation. Unfortunately, far too many children do not have this opportunity.

As we all mourn the death of Mr. Floyd, let us look inward and outward to make sure we are inclusive in our work environments and in our schools. Let us also do our part to end the senseless racism that exists in our society, empower all our students with the belief that they can succeed in the world, and give our students the knowledge and skills they need. Most of all, let us hope and pray they will experience a society in their lifetime where these tragedies no longer occur, and human beings are judged as Dr. King hoped they would be judged someday: “by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.”
Sincerely,

Ron Packard
