CoreVirtues  Letter from Sharon Aguina, Executive Principal


Dear Dragon Families,

Since we are getting ready for Thanksgiving break, I want to seize this opportunity to express my gratitude to all of our families.  Flagstaff Academy is always pleased when Thanksgiving approaches because this festive occasion gives us the opportunity to appreciate and express our gratitude to all those in our school community who have worked so closely together to create the ambient and warm culture that makes Flagstaff the special place we are all drawn to!

It's a pleasure to declare that this year so far has been a positive time of renewal, and we thank you for your unending support and also to express  to our families our sincere appreciation  for your confidence and loyalty.

We want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for your comments, support, personal work, stories, and emails... the list seems endless. I am personally touched by the sheer magnitude of caring and thoughtfulness that you have shown me. This community is so special and I am so proud to be a part of it.

We are deeply thankful and extend to you our best wishes for a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.

Sharon Aguina ,
Executive Principal
Flagstaff Academy

Volunteer  Greeting Dragons Volunteer! 

This is a great time of year to sit back and reflect on the growth we have seen in our Dragon Volunteer program. In this month of thanks, I would like to personally express my gratitude for your continued patience and support. 
During this month of giving and gratitude, please know that you're giving such an important gift all year long - your time! Material gifts only stay with us for a short time, but the memories you share with your student's school community will often last a lifetime!  I know our students, teachers, and staff benefit from your service as a volunteer. I hope you, as  parents  and members of our community, benefit as well!

Flagstaff Academy Volunteer Coordinator
