There are going to be times when we can’t wait for somebody. Now, you’re either on the bus or off the bus.” Ken Kesey
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome back to Steuart Hill Academic Academy (SHAA)! It’s that time of year again when we begin to prepare for school! Its’ with great pleasure to inform you that we are no longer a “Turnaround School” as measured by the Maryland State Department of Education. Congratulations to all of my parents, staff and students for all of your hard work, it paid off!
Our community partner YALA will return this year to continue implementing community resources with an academic and social emotional focus that is connected to the school’s vision and mission statement!
We will have a SHAA Extended Day Program for all students in grades 3 through 5 starting September 5, 2016 through December 23, 2016 in order to increase the probability of success on the 2017 PARCC state assessment.
The first student day is August 29, 2016, the doors open for students at 7:20 AM. Your child should meet their teacher outside on the blacktop near the large playground. Each teacher will have a sign with his or her name and homeroom number. We will be looking forward to seeing all of our STAR students in their SHAA uniforms.
Our Back-to School Night is Friday, September 09, 2016 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. We will reveal our New Auditorium named after our very own Amirah Kinlaw! Teachers will explain briefly the content of each subject area and will tell you their expectations and requirements of all students. I encourage you to ask questions at the end of each session. I can’t wait to meet and greet each one of you!
Please contact Mrs. Riley, Community Resource Coordinator at 410-396-1387 if you are interest in volunteering throughout the school year.
