The following letter is being mailed out to you:

UA Maker Students and Parents,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year. I am so incredibly excited to start learning with all of you this fall. This year we will celebrate our first graduating class of seniors from Maker Academy. This is a tremendous accomplishment for our senior class, their families, and all of those teachers and staff members who have supported them throughout their journey. For our 9-11th grade students it will be a year to focus on their pathways to graduation and beyond. Every student at Maker will gain exposure to planning for life after high school through our advisory program which will meet 3 times a week for all students.

I encourage all students to be planning out the best way to travel to Maker Academy. Being on time to school is very important. This year we will have two start times depending on the day of the week. Monday and Tuesday school will run 8:20-2:40. On Wednesday-Friday school will run 9:00-3:20. I want every one of you to think about which trains you are going to take so you are on time. Students that maintain a 95% of higher attendance rate do better in school. If you miss days you will struggle to earn credits and graduate on time.

I also want every student to think about how you can get involved in an after school activity. We know that students who are involved do better in school. Be sure to get signed up for after-school activities during the first few weeks of school.

There are several important forms that all students (incoming and current) need to return to the school by the first day of school, September 7th, 2017.  

DUE Thursday September 7, 2017

Core Values

CURIOSITY

Our school community constantly asks “why.” We are on the look out to improve our world.   In order to always be forward thinking, we develop our curiosity, creativity, and confidence to push boundaries.  

 

EMPATHY

We understand that we all bring unique and diverse experiences to our community.  We work to ensure those experiences are heard and honored.  We assume positive intentions of others as we work together to build our community.

 

RISK TAKING

We know that to reach new levels of success and to develop new, creative ideas and solutions to problems, we must venture beyond what feels comfortable to us.  When we take risks, we have the opportunity to revise and reflect on our actions and push ourselves to new levels of thinking. 

 

 

 

 

Self-Awareness

We measure the effectiveness of our actions. We know ourselves and use that knowledge to ask for support when we need it. We use our understanding of our strengths and weaknesses to create plans of action to achieve our goals.

RESILIENCE

We learn from our challenges and mistakes, and use them to better position ourselves for success in the future.
