A Letter from the Director...
As we reflect on the 2016-2017 school year, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your help, support and interest this year. We have had another very busy and successful year in school and you, as partners in the education of your children, deserve much of the credit for that. We are very fortunate to have a number of people who work tirelessly throughout the year to ensure that our school is able to do its best for your children. These individuals give their time, energy and enthusiasm, often working unseen, unnoticed, above and beyond what is asked of them and to them we say thank you. Please join me in acknowledging and celebrating the many wonderful learning experiences and educational opportunities that have taken place for our students at Deeper Root Academy, in the classrooms and in very creative and innovative ways. The tremendous effort of the staff and parents this year make DRA a wonderful and special learning environment.
As we plan for the next school year, I want you to know that it is my deep belief that the hallmark of a great school is to continuously work to improve learning for each and every child. As the leader of Deeper Root Academy, I see this as my most important responsibility and I take it very seriously. Therefore, creating strong and effective teacher teams at each grade level each year is a top priority for me as I work to ensure positive and effective teacher collaboration on behalf of children’s learning. As a staff, we will remain committed to the nurturing of each child as an individual and assist them in discovering their God given talents and abilities, while ensuring that they grow in the knowledge of God and His character.
Summer is a very special time for children and is the source of many happy memories. It is also critical that your children remain academically engaged during these months to prevent summer loss. I invite you to attend our free workshops during the summer and I look forward to seeing you all in August.
