The Principal's Corner
With Correy Black
Principal, The New Standard Academy
Summer is in full swing and it has been a hot one!!!!! I am hoping that you all are enjoying time with your children and creating memories. The academy has been very busy with basketball camps, weekly strength and conditioning, summer enrichment, car shows, and Flint Olympian games! Please be on the look out for more fun summer activities for you children to take part in or come and see. If your child plans to play sports in the upcoming school year please bring them out to strength and conditioning every Saturday from 10:00-12:00. The coaches are working on agility, and fundamentals to heighten student abilities.
We are hard at work preparing for another great year at the academy. One of the main additions will be the offering of 9th grade. Over the years there has been a consistent desire by parents to expand the grades we have here so their students can continue their education in a safe and familiar environment. It is no doubt we have a dynamic culture rooted firmly in our “family” like atmosphere. I think it is amazing that many of our upper classmen know kindergarteners and first graders. In the year to come we will be cultivating those relationships further through buddy reading and mentoring programs.
