Dear Flagstaff Families,

Welcome back everyone!!
What a great first week of school we've had! I so love when students return from the summer break because it is always so quiet and unsettling when they aren't here.  

Walking through classrooms this week, I have loved seeing the relationships being built in the classrooms - student to student and staff to students. Research shows that when students feel a connection to their class, their achievement soars. Our staff is certainly working hard to create a safe and nurturing environment for your children. From our new CHAMPs classroom management system to our emerging technologies, to our Restorative Practices, we are here to meet the social, emotional, and educational needs of your children.

Enjoy your weekend and we'll see everyone back here on Monday!

Robin Lowe
Executive Principal
Flagstaff Academy
