2016-17 Semester Letter

December 16, 2016

Hale Charter Academy Parents, Teachers, and Students,

Thank you for making the fall semester a great success. I feel so lucky each day to work with all of you.

As we come to the close of the Fall semester, let’s reflect on the highlights of the past 6 months. Our teachers and students should be congratulated on their hard work in improving our Academic program. With an emphasis on reading comprehension, interdisciplinary units, the VAPA and Steam curriculum, and our common assessments, we continue to work within our department and subject-alike teams to improve our curriculum and prepare our students to be college and career ready. As part of this transition, our teachers have increased the use of technology in their classrooms to provide students with a 21st century learning experience.

Our staff continues to work hard in keeping our school a safe place. Our teachers work daily to ensure that our students not only learn the curriculum, but also feel safe and secure in class. Our Student Service and Counseling staff continues to work overtime to make sure our students feel supported. With the addition of our Second Step Curriculum and Restorative Justice, we strive to find ways to educate our students in responsible behavior. 

We would not be able to do half of the things we do without the support of our parents! With the financial and volunteer support of our parents/PTSA, we continue to offer our students tutoring after school and have been able to increase campus supervision to keep our students safe. Thank you for your generous donations and participation in our vitally important fundraisers.

Hale continues to excel in our co-curricular activities. Leadership provides our students with enjoyable and exciting experiences. Our incredibly talented music, choral, dance, drill, art and drama students showed their star quality in outstanding holiday shows. Our clubs offer our students a fun place to share their common interests.

Although we achieved so much already, we still have much more to look forward to this Spring. We are expecting 420 more Chromebooks to arrive shortly, increasing the use of technology for our students. We have many exciting learning experiences planned, including the Spring Performances, and we certainly look forward to our 8th grade culmination activities.

Thank you all for your hard work and support in making Hale the exceptional school that it is. I wish you all a Happy Holiday and New Year.

Mr. Perdigao
