Dear Mesa Arts Academy Families,
I am pleased to welcome you back to the 2020-21 school year! I would like to extend a special welcome to all of the new families joining MAA this year, as well as welcome back all of our returning families! I am honored to be your principal. Our goal at MAA is to work together to provide our students with a rich learning environment. My vision, as the principal, is to ALWAYS put kids first! My belief is that all students can learn. As educators, we need to discover how each child learns in order to differentiate our instruction to support diverse learning styles. In a collaborative effort, we want children to thrive in all ways possible. My hope is that all children will LOVE school and nurture a learning environment that is positive, safe, warm, and caring, and a fun place to learn and grow, as well.
Student success is attributed to the partnership and the relationships we build within our community and this is MOST important now more than ever. It truly does take a village and, at MAA, we value teamwork and collaboration! Education is a joint venture, and Team MAA greatly appreciates the support you provide for your children at home and at school to help them meet their learning goals. Without the support of parent contributions through our extraordinary Mesa Arts Academy Parent Organization, we would not have many of the programs that make MAA so unique and successful. Please consider joining the MAAPO monthly meeting in September.
Although this year looks different than any other year, we are dedicated to providing your child(ren) a memorable, interactive, and engaging distance-learning experience. In spite of the differences this year, MAA will be focusing on all the positives that we can take from this experience; as the role models in our little dragons’ lives, it is important that we display a positive attitude towards distance learning each and every day. I encourage you to do the same at home.
