Greetings Wildcat Families:

It’s that time of the year again! Another school year is fast approaching. I hope that all of you had a great summer! I look forward to another exciting year, where we will…Empowering leaders through great leadership to impact the community and world (Vision). We thought we would be proactive and get some information out to you so you can start the school year off excited and ready.

The first day of school will be Wednesday, August 17th.

The daily schedule is the same as last year with school beginning each day at 8:00 AM.

Students are tardy at 8:00 and must report to the office for a tardy pass.

Please do not send your students to school before 7:30 AM, unless they are attending before school care.

Before school care is from 7:00 – 7:30 everyday with Ms. Booth. Ms. Booth will pick the students up at the front entrance of the school.

The front entrance will open at 7:30 AM, where all students will report to the cafeteria.

All students eat breakfast and lunch free. Breakfast will be served at 7:30 – 7:55 daily.

Monthly menus will be posted on each school’s website and hard copies will be posted in the office.

Please contact the school office before 9:00 AM if your child is going to be absent. Just a reminder… it is a district policy that an automated message will be sent to you after 10:00 AM if your child is absent.

We will have Homeroom Meet and Greet on Monday, August 15th from 5:00 – 7:00 pm. This is the time you will come and meet your child’s teacher, build relationships with other parents in the class, sign up for various school related parent opportunities and complete any forms.

Your child’s teacher will share what you can expect for the upcoming year, as well as how both the home and school will work together in learning and modeling the 7 habits.

All class lists will be posted outside each teacher’s door.

If you’re picking your child up for an early dismissal, we ask that you come to the office and sign him/her out. Students will remain in the classroom until the teacher receives a phone call of an early dismissal.

Parents who are transporting their students to school enter the parking lot from the back entrance. Students will be dropped off in the front section, and parents will then circle around the back of the parking lot to exit. The same procedure will occur in the afternoon. Parents will remain in their cars, give your student’s name to the staff member and students will be called out via walkie-talkie.

From The Principal

As this year comes to a close, it has been an exciting one for all of us at Richard Allen Academy. Together, we have learned much and shared expereinces that will long remain with us in the years to come.

 Special thanks to all of you who have contributed in many ways, byputting first things first. Thank you for getting your children to school on time each day, for calls of encouragement- that meant so much, for making sure homework was completed...and turned in. Thanks for chaperoning field trips, providing food for students and staff, attending school events, serving on committees, supporting our work in countless ways for the benefit of all our students. For these, and a million other things, we are truly grateful.

 I am happy and excited that by our efforts of beginning with the end in mind, our spring Terra Nova results are in and we have 155 students make their academic growth gains. The dedication, hard work, and perseverence soared through the building shining bright amongst our students and teachers.

 It has been an honor and a priviledge to serve as the principal of Richard Allen Academy. Thank you to the teachers, staff, students, parents, and community.

 Ms. Kerley
