Dragon Weekly

Getting Ready for Back to School!

Welcome to Our New School Year at Flagstaff! 

We are so excited to have you as part of our Dragon family. Our staff has spent the summer planning and preparing to ensure your child has an amazing school year so you can be confident you chose the best when you decided to send your child to Flagstaff!

As the new executive principal, my primary role will be working with our staff to evaluate school programs, such as our current math sequence, leading staff in finding ways we can stay on the cutting edge of our charter STEM focus, and creating a professional development plan for our teachers. We will also be looking to ensure appropriate curriculum alignment in our science classrooms, as well as new grants to continue giving our students opportunities for learning outside of the classroom.

This year our focus on staff learning will be:
In addition, we will be:
  • Reviewing our math course sequence and opportunities for accelerating math learning
  • Evaluating our STEM electives and offerings, as well as reviewing our curriculum alignment in middle school science
  • Creating a sequence of electives for middle school students
And of course for our students:
  • Ensuring a rigorous and relevant curriculum
  • Continuing building relationships with our students
  • Offering our students creative, as well as fun electives to meet their interests!
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you may have. As always, we are for here for you!
