Thanksgiving Food Drive
Brent Reckman - CEO

Thanks to the hard work and participation of many students, staff, and families, The Academy was able to donate over 1200 pounds of food to Community Food Share!

The students of National Junior Honors Society worked super hard to organize this event, specifically 8th grader Sophie Gremillion (who made our awesome trophy), 9th grader Sam Hansen, her mom Jackie, and 9th grader Madison Mello, who drove, loaded, and unloaded food at the food bank. Many of the items were from the high needs list (like infant care supplies and high value foods) and the folks at the organization were grateful!

Thanks also to all the amazing 6th-12th grade teachers, students, and families who participated, and special shout-out to Kaitlyn Phillips for her help organizing and Lauren Calvin, whose homeroom crushed the competition with almost 400 items donated! 

Veterans Day Ceremony
Brent Reckman

The Academy's performing arts department and other student representatives invited veterans from the community to a special program in their honor.

Academy students and staff were encouraged to invite veterans from their families in for a special appreciation along with coffee and donuts. The Veterans Day ceremony included a rendition of the national anthem by the Acapella Singers, a musical tribute to the various branches of the military by the Wind Ensemble, and a presentation of thanks from a group of 5th grade student leaders.

Thank you to all the veterans who serve our country with honor and sacrifice!

1st Grade Teacher at Trunk or Treat
Brent Reckman - Academy CEO

The Academy's PTO hosted their annual Trunk or Treat event on Thursday, October 28th. This fun evening raised money to support classroom teachers and after school activities.

Trunk or Treat 2021 was a huge success - teachers, families, and local businesses created some amazing trunk decorations, students dressed up in awesome costumes, and everyone ate way too much candy! By the end of the night, we had more than 1,000 attendees and raised over $9,000!!! Thank you so much to our hard-working PTO!

"It was so fun to see our current and former students having a great time. Events like this are a reminder of why we do this job!" - 1st Grade Teachers (aka Ninja Turtles)
