      Message From Our Principal

      Snowy Range Academy Community,

      November has arrived, and the first quarter of the school year is behind us. Our first quarter was a wonderful success, and we are looking forward to all the excitement to come as we move through the year. SRA is a remarkable school, and we are honored every day to be part of such a positive, successful educational program. 

      During the month of October, we completed our fall MAP testing, as well as our Interim WY-TOPP assessment. Those results, as well as 2022 WY-TOPP summative assessment results were shared with 4th through 8th grade parents during parent-teacher conferences. I trust parents found their child’s conferences beneficial and informative concerning their child’s performance and growth. Thank you for taking the time to attend these conferences. As you know, regular parent involvement is critical to student success. We firmly believe students benefit when parents and teachers communicate on a regular basis to support student learning. We encourage parents to schedule a time to visit with their teacher if they have any questions or concerns as the year progresses.

      We will be kicking off our November with the SRA Fall Family Night/Book Fair on November 17 from 4:00 until 6:00 p.m., sponsored by the SRA-PTA. The PTA has fun activities planned so we hope to have an abundance of families joining us for this event. The SRA-PTA is always looking for ways to support our school, and we appreciate greatly appreciate the support. We hope all parents consider joining the PTA as this is a terrific way to support our school. 

      Keeping with tradition, our middle school fine arts field trip occurred on October 19. This year students attended the Denver Symphony followed by an interactive experience at the Denver Art Museum. We are proud that we are able to offer this opportunity to our students, and we appreciate the support that makes this trip an annual reality. 

      I hope you all have a terrific month. Enjoy!
