Dear Sixth Grade Academy Students and Families,
Summer greetings to you all! On behalf of our teachers and staff, I’d like to extend a warm welcome to you as we prepare for the 2017-2018 school year. Allow me to share important information with you that will guide our work as we begin the new school year.
At SGA, our focus is to provide everyone in our school community a safe and productive learning environment where continued academic and social growth is fostered and achieved. Our committed staff works hard at making sure your child can reach his or her full academic and social potential. Teachers have spent full weeks this summer participating in professional development opportunities and planning collaboratively to ensure successful academic outcomes. Similarly, our custodial and maintenance staff has taken great pride in making sure our school building and grounds are clean and tidy, ready to welcome our SGA community. We welcome two new faces to SGA; counselor Jessica Duran and teacher Katherine Schweizer. They excitedly joined our team earlier this summer.
Beginning on Monday, July 24, 2017, you can stop by the SGA office between 7:30 – 3:30 to pick up/verify the pre-printed registration packet. Additionally, we welcome you on Tuesday, August 1, 2017 from 8:00-1:00 and 2:00-6:00 for registration day. Registration make up day is Thursday, August 3, 2017 from 8:00 – 12:00. Student schedules will be distributed only after the registration packet has been completed, submitted, and verified on this day. School supply lists for each teacher will be shared on this day as well. You can also pay the $5.00 school planner fee on this day. New Mexico’s tax free weekend is August 4-6, 2017.
An important part of the work that we do involves the key relationship with our students’ families and community. We value you tremendously and we realize that you are instrumental to your child’s success. Please continue to be involved in your child’s education. If you ever have any questions or concerns, contact us at (505) 819-2300 or contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also encourage you to visit our website at pvs.k12.nm.us for the latest news and information that will assist you throughout the school year.
