The first day of school is just around the corner and Resolute Academy is thrilled to open our doors to students for the 2021-2022 school year! A new school year always comes with new growth. Our staff has been working hard this summer to prepare for your return!
It’s been a while since we’ve been together full-time, so we’re easing the transition by holding half-days of school for Camp Resolute from August 16th to August 20th. We’ll use this time to build community, bond, and get re-oriented to our schedule, core values, and safety routines.
Also during Camp Resolute, we’ll be kicking off the start of our Where Everybody Belongs (WEB) program, which is funded by a $15,000 grant from the Novo Foundation. Our 7th and 8th grade students will be putting their leadership skills to use as they mentor and assist our younger students. This is a great addition to our already strong social-emotional learning curriculum with the goal of growing the hearts and minds of our middle schoolers toward a more equitable future.
Resolute teachers have been back on campus since the middle of July to prepare for your arrival. We’ve been focusing on improving our teaching on topics such as literacy, collaboration within grade levels, lesson planning, sharing our expertise with our community, and learning new teaching techniques. We think our teachers’ dedication to modeling life-long learning is one of the best things about our school.
Once again, COVID-19 is at the forefront of our thoughts as we approach a new school year amid increasing cases of the Delta variant. As we start our third year with this “new normal”, we want to remind you that your safety, and that of all our staff and students, is our top priority. We will continue to follow all guidelines to make attending Resolute Academy a safe, enjoyable experience. Here are a few things you’ll notice as we start off the year:
- We’ve made it easy to get tested at school with our new Covid testing set up.
- Our teachers now have microphones so students can hear through masks.
- Classrooms have been deep cleaned and teachers have all the best cleaning supplies to help with disinfection and sanitation.
As always, communication with you, our families, is central to a successful year. Our communication tools are up and running for each student, including our Parent Portal. Download the ParentSquare App and look for communication from us often!
The energy on campus from teachers and staff is making us feel like this will be our best year yet. We can’t wait to see you soon!
