Dear EAGLE Families,
As I write this, we are excitedly preparing for the 21-22 school year. I have been in education for over 20 years and with EAGLE since 2015, and I have to say that I anticipate that this year’s first day of school will be the all-time favorite of my career. When I imagine our scholars walking through the doors on August 9th, I cannot wait to see how much they’ve grown and witness how happy they will be to return to a more normal school experience.
One of the things that originally drew me to work at EAGLE was the acronym “Expecting Academic Greatness with a Loving Emphasis”. Since we first opened in the fall of 2016, that loving emphasis is what families continually cite as the biggest reason why they first selected our campus and choose to return year after year. Parents often comment that they feel that our staff really knows their child(ren). We are a small, tight-knit community where each person is genuinely appreciated and cared for. If you are new to our school, I cannot wait for you to experience this for yourselves!
Another thing that drew me to EAGLE is our emphasis on developing character, which is woven into everything we do. We want our scholars to know who they are, identify their gifts, and start to develop an understanding of their purpose in this world. Visitors to our classrooms and assemblies often remark that our scholars are so kind, helpful, and welcoming. This is a source of tremendous pride for us and we find joy in hearing that character is evident throughout our building.
I am so looking forward to getting to know our new families and reconnecting with our returning families. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at email@example.com or 314-440-7947 if there is anything you need!
