Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome back to Steuart Hill Academic Academy (SHAA)! I hope you had a great summer vacation filled with plenty of rest and relaxation.Summers are very often a time to reconnect with family members, spend quality time with friends and family, and perhaps even do a little traveling. The time has now come to transition back to our very important business of acquiring our education. The first student day is August 25, 2014 the doors open for students at 7:45 AM. This year promises to be exciting as we continue on the journey of becoming the district’s exemplar school for literacy through the arts and sciences.
Personally, I am pleased to continue as your Principal. Our focus remains centered around providing a high quality experience for each student as they develop academically, socially, physically, and emotionally. As a faculty and school family, we will stay committed to fully engaging our families and community in the work of preparing our students to be college and career ready.
I am truly excited about the opportunity to once again lead the teachers and this community as we continue on our path toward excellence. Please join me in my efforts by staying informed about what is happening at Steuart Hill, be a partner in the conversations about your student's progress in school, and possibly become a parent volunteer. At Steuart Hill, parents can volunteer to read to students, assist in playground supervision during lunch shifts, and assist in copying and distributing materials. If you are interested in helping out, please call 410-396-1387 to speak with Mrs. Smith who will be our Volunteer coordinator this year.
Last but not least, I look forward to meeting you at the New Steuart Hill Academic Academy’s Back-to School Night on Thursday, September 11, 2014 from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Teachers will explain briefly the content of each subject area and will tell you their requirements and expectations of all students. You are encouraged to ask questions at the end of each session. I can’t wait to meet and greet each one of you!
