Welcome Back to School! 

Hello Flagstaff Families! 

I am so excited that the start of our school year is just around the corner. I can't believe that I'm about to begin my second year at Flagstaff Academy - last year and this summer have flown by! August has always been my favorite time of year. As a young girl, I remember shopping for new school clothes and supplies and so eagerly awaiting that first day of school. Honestly, I still feel that way and I guess it's why I'm still working in schools after 29 years!  

Our teachers and staff have been working so hard to get things prepared for you and your children. We've attended workshops and conferences, painted classrooms and cut out letters, and crafted unit plans and lessons designed to engage and ignite our students. We are ready and we are excited at the prospect of a new year full of promises and dreams. Thank you for entrusting your children to us this year - our goal is to exceed your expectations!

As a reminder, below are our upcoming Back-to-School dates and information for the month of August to share with you. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Take care and see you soon!
