CoreVirtues  Letter from Sharon Aguina, Executive Principal


Dear Flagstaff Community,

As we draw near our winter break, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your overwhelmingly positive support during the Autumn term.  Flagstaff Academy has made progress in many areas, especially in improving the standards of attendance, mathematics, reading, and Technology/STEM. There have been many high points and lots to celebrate since August and our staff, students, and parents have been a credit to our school. I am very proud to be the Executive Principal of Flagstaff Academy.

As the 2017/18 winter term moves to its end, I write to congratulate your child for their efforts as our students have worked very well this term. I would like to thank all parents, staff and particularly the students for making me feel welcome at Flagstaff Academy. I already feel a part of the culture and your support has been invaluable in helping me to settle into the role. I look forward to continuing to work with you in making Flagstaff Academy the very best school that we can offer to our children and community.
 
The holiday season is the best time of the year. It is a time when you meet and greet your loved ones, spend quality time with your family, and spread the joy and happiness all around.  I hope you enjoy the holiday season with those you love and step into the New Year with lots of happiness and good health.
