Head of School’s Weekly Message

October 27, 2017

Dear Urban Academy Families,

As we approach Hallowe’en we have lots of very excited students. Teachers have planned activities for their students and information on those will be on blogs as well as messages home. Guidance on costumes has also been provided. We want them to have a wonderful day and we know it is one youngsters look forward to. Robson Manor will be decorated on Monday October 30 when students arrive. Our parent Hallowe’en party is on the Saturday night and the committee always does a great job of decorating the old house for that party and then leaving many of the decorations in place for the students to enjoy the following week.

Thank you for your Annual Appeal donations! Please send your contributions in if you have not yet had the chance to do so. If you require a donor form please call or email Miranda McNamara at the Junior School and she will be happy to send you one. The support is coming in steadily and we are so appreciative of the contributions already made.

Please mark your calendars for the Urban Academy Society community AGM meeting on November 16 at 7:00 pm at Uptown. The Board of Directors will host you and will provide an outline of the work completed in 2016-2017, our audited financial statements and share the direction of their new Strategic Plan going forward to 2023. We will also have Paul Grant, our lead architect of the new school in attendance, who will share progress on the project and go over the design for our families. A few days beforehand, you will receive electronic copies of the Annual Report and the audited financials so that you can go over the materials. Please plan to join us – a lot of great information and a chance to connect with your community and your Board.

Mrs. Cheryle Beaumont

Head of School
