I'd like to start by welcoming all of you to the Academy and I am looking forward to a different and great year. As you know, we are moving through some uncharted waters in the education world due to the current pandemic. I ask that you are patient with me and other educators this year as we try to do what is best for the students. I am going to be keeping students informed about meeting, agendas, and announcements via Remind and Curve. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have throughout the year. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
