The beginning of semester two has been filled with many celebrations and highlights of learning. Thank you to all of our parents for your active participation in three-way conferences, open houses, and assemblies. We have celebrated academic successes, success on the sports fields and the diversity in our community. I hope you enjoy reading about these in this Panther Spotlight edition.
Over the last 18 months, we have been collecting feedback from parents, teachers, and students. We have been engaging in conversations with our Advisory Board and PUE to determine the next steps in QA Sidra’s growth. This work came as a direct recommendation from our CIS /NEASC accreditation visit that occurred in 2018.
We were delighted to be able to share the draft QA Sidra purpose statement, path to purpose and extended vision at the Directors Parent Forum in February. At this Forum we received constructive feedback from our parents.
To ensure that all of our community has an opportunity to provide feedback on the draft QA Sidra Purpose, Path to Purpose and Vision we inviting your voices, thoughts, and comments via email. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
