Letter from the Superintendent

A+ Children’s Academy Families:

Welcome! We are incredibly excited to begin the 2017-18 school year! This promises to be a year filled with amazing opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have before!  We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with special events and a plethora of activities, performing arts, and field trips certain to encourage our students to be involved and stay connected! Our vision for this year is for all APCA students to be excited about learning and empowered to control their own educational pathway.

 Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. We invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us to seize opportunities to be engaged in their child’s education. The 2017-18 school year will be one of several positive changes throughout the school. I have been in the role of Superintendent/Principal since the foundation of the school in 2012 and will be serving in that capacity once again this year. Also, Ms. LaCrisha Darling will serve in a new capacity as Dean of Students. Ms. Darling has also worked at the school since 2012 and has been in the education field for over 18 years. She served as Parent Liaison last year and other administrative positions in the past. She has a background in early childhood education as well.

 We look forward to a very positive and productive year together!  We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  We want, need, and we value your involvement and support in your child’s education!  Your active participation is key to the success of your young student’s during his/her elementary school years.

 Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at APCA.  It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success.  We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.

Please join us for our Open House on Monday, August 21, 2017 from 3 to 6pm. You will be able to meet your child’s teacher, see the classroom, tour the school, and receive additional important information. The first day of school is Wednesday, August 23, 2017. School starts at 8:45am and ends at 3:15pm. Breakfast begins at 8:15am.

 Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day! 



Mindi Hardgrow, Superintendent
