Happy Holidays Everyone!!

It is not often that we get to experience the winter solstice while school is in session. It was certainly dark yesterday!! Now we start moving toward the light again!! The longer days will be here before we know it.

Thank you to everyone for an amazing first part of the school year at UA. Every year that I have been at UA the school continues to evolve. I am so impressed with the quality of the community from the students and families, to the staff and the Board of Directors. It really is a privilege to work at UA and be part of this community. Also, on behalf of all of our staff, thank you for your generosity and the gifts that have been received this week. There have been so many goodies and treats, we feel well appreciated by our community. 

The new year always brings such optimism and hope. I am looking forward to seeing what is in store in 2024. One thing I know for sure is that it will be full of excitement and energy. I hope you all enjoy some rest and relaxation over the holidays surrounded by family and friends. I know I am looking forward to reconnecting with some of my family and friends over the break. Maybe a couple of adventures too.

All the best, see you all in 2024!! There should be some exciting updates to the facility waiting for everyone when they come back.

Yours in education,
Mr. Slinger
