Head of School’s Weekly Message
June 22, 2018
Dear Urban Academy Families,
Thank you for a wonderful year working with your children and with all of our school community. It has been a year of exceptional change at Urban Academy as we prepare to welcome another new group of families and plan for our last few months at the two campuses we currently occupy. Our new school continues to move through construction at a steady pace with a very focused and dedicated crew!
Congratulations to our students for their excellent achievement. I am very proud of their work and the learning that has taken place. It is always wonderful to watch them grow and develop. To our graduates, our very best wishes as you move on to post-secondary challenges and opportunities. The support of the UA community is behind you. Stay in touch with your school and your friends.
Two of our Directors on the Board of Urban Academy will be stepping down as of the end of the school year. Viral Thakkar and his family are moving to Philadelphia to pursue an exciting opportunity in business and so we will say good bye to the family and a heartfelt thank you to Viral. His work on the Board has been most appreciated and we will miss him around the table. Carmen Grant is also stepping down. She and her husband have some wonderful travelling plans in their future. We have valued Carmen’s work and leadership with us and will miss her. Thank you to both of you and please come back to visit.
Have a wonderful summer with your children. I sent a fairly extensive letter to our families early in the week that outlined camps for next year, uniform, summer access to our sites and a progress update on our new school. Please feel welcome to call if you require clarification on any of the information provided. Enjoy the time with your family. On behalf of my staff and the Board of Directors, thank you for your support and a very successful year.
Our last two Friday emails will be sent in the next two weeks.
Enjoy the first weekend of summer!
Mrs. Cheryle Beaumont
Head of School
