Dear Imagine Parents/Guardians,
Welcome back to another exciting school year at Imagine Great Western Academy! We are proud to continue our work as both a State and National School of Character this year. We hope everyone is ready to continue their work on building strong character, at the same time progressing towards showing strong academic growth.
We are so thrilled to have everyone back this year to demonstrate their Golden Bear Pride! We have a ton of amazing things planned again this school year, including:
• Academic Award Assemblies
• Character Development Recognition
• Learning Lab Classrooms
• Second Step Social Skills Program
• Family Events & Activities
• Peaceful Playgrounds Program
• 8th Grade High School Visits
• Field Trips & Field Day
• Reading Recovery Intervention
• Winter Concerts
• Scholastic Book Fairs
• School Clubs & Community Garden
We are also excited to continue providing our students with the academic support they need with our SUCCESS instructional blocks for both reading and math. These blocks of time really allow us to help our students either get the additional remediation and help that they need to show progress or push them to extend their thinking overall. We will continue implementing our full day parent teacher conferences in order to best meet the needs of our parents and allow us to work together and communicate about student progress.
We want to thank you for continuing to choose Imagine Great Western Academy as the best educational fit for your child. We appreciate your on-going support of our school and the safe, rigorous environment that we provide to our students and families every single day.
We look forward to seeing you at Open House on August 19th from 4-6 pm. Please come in and meet your child’s teacher and tour the school for the 2019-2020 school year.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and we will see you on August 21st for the first day of school!
Our Summer office hours are Monday – Thursday from 8:00am-3:30pm 🙂
