Principal's End of Fall Semester Message

 

Hale Charter Academy Parents, Teachers, and Students,

 

I wanted to thank everyone 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, I want to highlight the hard work of our teachers over of the past 6 months. They strive to improve our academic program with an emphasis on common core standards, interdisciplinary units, rigorous curriculum and our common assessments. We continue to work within our department and grade level teams as well as our dynamic programs; AVID, Hale Team, STEAM, and VAPA, to ensure our students will be prepared for high school and are college and career ready.

 

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

 

I would like to thank our parents for your generous donations and participation in our vitally important fundraisers. We would not be able to do all of the things we do without your support. A special thanks to our PTSA for the time and effort they put into supporting our staff and students.

 

Hale continues to excel in our co-curricular activities. Leadership provides our students with fun and exciting experiences. Our incredibly talented choral, dance and drill students showed their star quality in outstanding holiday performances. Our VAPA program shared the fun with their Lip Sync and Monologue nights. Our young scientists in STEAM showed off their brain power with our Makers Space Day, our Science Fair Projects and in our Robotics competitions. Our clubs continue to provide our students with a fun place to share their common interests. We look forward to the talent that our second semester will showcase.

 

Although we achieved so much already, we still have much more to look forward to in the Spring Semester. I would like to congratulate Dr. Jaber-Ansari on her promotion to Assistant Principal; we feel lucky to have her working in this new capacity.

 

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

Principal
