LEADERSHIP LETTER: Wayne Granger, Executive Director
Hello Dragon Families,

Are you ready for the big game this weekend? I have to confess, I actually rooted for Kansas City two weeks ago. That's heresy coming from a lifelong Broncos family, but it was the right thing to do even if it didn't work out.

Speaking of amazing competitions and traditions, we are so excited to be hosting our VEX-IQ Robotics tournament next Saturday, February 9. Over 30 teams from all over the state will be at our school showing off their creativity, teamwork, engineering, and problem-solving skills. If you've never experienced the excitement and cooperation of these tournaments in person, drop by the school between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. to cheer on our Dragon Teams and see what all the buzz is about. Two of our teams have already qualified to compete in the State Tournament and we welcome your support.

Also, on Wednesday, February 6 Late Start Day, one of my favorite traditions takes place: Our Annual 5th Grade Pancake Breakfast. Our leadership team cooks breakfast for our 5th graders as a traditional Flagstaff Academy introduction to middle school. After enjoying a community-building breakfast, our middle school staff and middle school Dragon Buddies take the 5th graders through the middle school and show them all they have to look forward to next year. It's always such a fun event and I love seeing the energy of our 5th grade and middle school teachers showing the cultural and academic benefits of a K-8 school.

It may be only the beginning of February, but we're gearing up for a busy and exciting month! I look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events.

Go Dragons!
