Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!

Dear Socrates Academy Families,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! It was a FANTASTIC first week at Socrates Academy and we’re off and running. Thank you for all of your enthusiasm and energy. Last week you probably heard about our theme for this school year: “Life is a book, we fill the pages.” As a school, we are committed to promoting a lifelong love of reading for our scholars. This theme provides an avenue for our scholars to deepen literacy engagement and motivation. Additionally, books support emotional development, so this theme is all-encompassing for educating the whole child.

This is my third year as Principal at Socrates Academy. I am privileged to lead such an amazing group of faculty and staff members, and I am humbled to have the opportunity to help play a role in your child’s learning and development. I am also grateful for all that you do to support our work here at Socrates, both at home and here at the school. This spirit of volunteerism and camaraderie—which was on full display these past two weeks—is one of the defining characteristics of Socrates Academy. Your personal involvement is what makes Socrates Academy special.

Another way you can make a difference is by supporting our fundraising efforts through a contribution to the Annual Fund. Information on our Annual Fund is available on our website and we will provide regular updates on our 2018-2019 goals, campaigns and progress throughout the year. You can always find up to date information, including photos and updates from the first week, on our website, our Facebook page, and through our weekly Socrates Connection newsletter.

I am delighted to welcome back our returning families, and to extend a warm Socrates Academy welcome to the families joining our community for the first time. I look forward to getting to know all of you better over the course of the school year. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly with any questions. If you’d like to schedule an appointment with me, please feel free to contact Georgia Kastanas at the front office and we’ll find some time.

Thank you again for everything that you do for our school. Together, we will make this an incredible year at Socrates Academy! Sincerely,

Sandra Brighton, Principal
