The Principal's Corner
With Correy Black
Principal, The New Standard Academy
As the holiday season continues it is my wish that each of you find quality time to spend with your families. One of the most important factors in education is having a safe and consistent environment for children to live in. Your love, affection, and simple words of encouragement will fuel your child to do remarkable things. As we continue to work with your children we invite each of you to become more intimately involved with your students performance. Please seek out and gain access to the parent portal so you are always up to speed on your child’s performance in the academy. Utilizing this tool is essential in raising student accountability, as it will keep you well informed as to what your child is doing. The academy is working hard to foster an environment that is inclusive to all and impactful for all.
I want to take a moment and thank the staff for their hard work in planning, assessment preparation, tutoring, and intervention services. The time each of them put in to provide your child with the best education is definitely deserving of multiple awards. In the past year over 98% of our teachers remained with us. There are a few new faces delivering quality instruction in the high school grades and on our MTSS team. What this says is that they ALL are committed to your children AND that they have the highest expectation of success. Please email or communicate a sincere thanks to your child’s teacher for all of their effort.
Last but not least a big congratulations goes out to the varsity football team for winning their conference and the championship game. Well done!
