REACH Newsletter - Spring 2021
Spring has arrived!
To our AMAZING REACH Families,

With all that our communities and families have had to endure in the past year, we know that it can be challenging to stay positive, but we hope you will join us in feeling optimistic for the future.

We are currently planning for the next school year and hope to share more information with parents soon. We are reopening the parent survey for student learning options and hope that if you haven’t already, that you will take the time to let us know your preference for next year.
I want to give a SHOUT OUT to our formidable teachers and staff! They have persisted in delivering learning continuity and innovating new ways to support our students, all while keeping school safety and COVID regulations in mind.

Words cannot express how much I appreciate you continuing to choose REACH Leadership STEAM Academy for your children. I want to applaud our distance learning families for all that they do to help support their students as they learn remotely. Our school community's survival lies in the strength of and the collaboration between our staff and REACH families. 

I hope you had a relaxing spring break and please continue to stay safe and healthy.

With gratitude,

Dr. Rentie
