Head of School’s Weekly Message

June 25, 2021

Dear UA Parents,

We made it! What a year it has been at UA. Just as I started the year with an interview, we have decided to share some final thoughts of the school year via thisĀ video.

I would also like to take a moment to put some thank-yous in writing.

To our UA Board of Directors:
Thank you for your commitment and dedication to UA. Know that your leadership and support are very much appreciated by me and by the community as a whole. This year you helped guide us all through many significant items including the pandemic, the construction of the 5th floor, and a successful application to CAIS, to which our school is seeking membership. It has been quite a year.

To our UA Staff:
It has been a year like no other. You have dedicated yourself to our students, their well-being, and their education. You are a big reason for the success of Urban Academy. Your perseverance, dedication, and commitment have been remarkable. Please take the time to enjoy a well-deserved rest this summer.

To our UA Students:
You carried yourselves so well through a challenging year. You came to school with a smile and enthusiasm and were the motivation for all of the adults at UA. Have a restful and hopefully active summer. I am looking forward to seeing you all back in September.

To our UA Parents:
Thank you for putting your trust in us. Your support and willingness to have your students engaged at UA are appreciated. It has been a challenging year for parents and I hope the summer brings some calm and a return to some normal routines. I am very hopeful that I will have the opportunity to meet you all in person next year. Have a wonderful summer, and we will see you back for our Back to School Celebration.

Attached you will find an invitation to our Back to School Celebration on September 1.

Yours in education,

Mr. Slinger
