Dear New Branches Charter Academy Family,
We are pleased to welcome you and your students to the 2021/2022 school year as part of the Choice family. Our staff has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of their students and cannot wait to learn and grow with them. As our school opens its doors this week, it is important for our families to be reassured that our staff is motivated and energized to welcome your child back to a classroom seat.
Last year tested our resilient families and teachers with a combination of in-person and virtual school, reduced socialization opportunities and created a major disruption to daily routines. No matter how your child was educated last year, homeschool, virtual, or in-person, they are welcome to our New Branches family. Regardless of where your child is in their educational journey, our teachers are ready to meet them where they are at. We promise to deliver a high-quality education that every student deserves and will work tirelessly to help ignite each child’s love for life-long learning.
We know this year may bring some bumps along the way and that’s why our schools place emphasis on social emotional learning. We will instill perseverance and courage in school events, literature and writing activities. We will share compassion and responsibility with our families. Good judgement will be at the forefront of all that we do.
We, at New Branches, are confident that everyone can thrive here. To our returning families and to those of you just joining us, let’s have a strong school year full of environmentally focused learning!
Terry Larkin & Kristen Crawford
