Empower Generations learners

Director’s Message

We are eager to welcome back our learners this week!  We find value in pausing, reflecting  and resetting when needed.  Together as a staff we reestablished our norms and school wide expectations.  We will be discussing and implementing these with the learners starting Monday.  Check out your Parent Square for more detailed information.

Thank you to the families that attended their ILPs (Individualized Learning Plans) with their Advisors last week.  There is one more day, October 8th to schedule a time.  This is a really important time to set goals for the school year.  

October Fall Break is coming up the week of October 11th.  No new work will be assigned during this time.

Make it a great week!

Malaka Donovan-Director
