UA Maker Students and Parents,

 

Wow, we have just finished 2 months of school. Can you believe it? I’m so proud of the work that our students and teachers are doing this year. I’ve seen so many great projects that our students are engaged in. I’ve seen students in 9th grade Algebra using statistics to make an argument about what causes happiness. Our 11th graders are hosting an art expo at Starbuck this Thursday night showing off their work to local partners. Our 12th graders are creating infographics in Chemistry explaining how different elements can be used to create different colors of fireworks. I can’t wait to see more of what our students create this year.

Next week on Thursday November 9 and Friday November 10 we will have parent teacher conferences. At Maker Academy our conferences are run by advisors. Each family gets 15 minutes with their advisor who will walk you through your student’s progress to graduation and current progress report. As always, if you want to meet with more of your student’s teachers, please let your advisor know and they can help set up a time for you to meet with them.

We have decided to move our November Parent Association and School Leadership Team (SLT) meeting to November 15.  SLT will meet from 430-530 and our PA meeting will begin at 6:00. Our Parent Association will be hosting a potluck that evening and we would love to see you there. The potluck will be from 6-8 pm and include a Parent Association meeting. Please email Millie and Becky if you are interested in helping out and/or attending the potluck. You can email Millie at mrs.milagroscolon@gmail.com


Finally, one of our teachers, Jay Salas, is leaving us after Thanksgiving. He is moving to Maine where his wife is starting a new job. We are going to miss Jay tremendously and wish him the best of luck. Summer Brady, our dually certified special education and social studies teacher, will be taking over his teaching duties right after Thanksgiving. We are currently looking for a new special education teacher to join our team.

As always, I appreciate everything that our families do to support our students.

 

Thanks,

 

Luke Bauer
