Dear Friends of Synergy,
For the past 15 years, I have had the privilege of helping to start all three Synergy Academies schools. From the
moment we dreamed up a school in 2002 to the time we opened the doors of our first school in 2004 to where
we stand today in 2017, I have always been extremely proud to be a part of the Synergy Family.
That is why it is with a heavy heart that I share with you that this school year will be my final year with Synergy
This was a very difficult decision for me to make because Synergy has been a part of my life for such a long
time. In fact, the kindergarteners that were with us in year one are now high school seniors and will be
graduating from high school this year.
There are no personal emergencies or school emergencies that led to my decision to step down, so rest assured
that there is nothing wrong. Instead, I often rely on my intuition (just like my intuition told me to start a school
15 years ago), and my heart is telling me that it is time to move on, knowing that Synergy is in good hands.
Our Board of Directors oversaw the search process for a new CEO, and I am happy to share with you that
Synergy's Board of Directors appointed Mrs. Rhonda Deomampo to serve as Synergy's New CEO effective July
joined Synergy eleven years ago, and has worked as a 2nd grade teacher, a teacher mentor
at all three Synergy schools, and as Synergy's Director of Special Projects. I know
that Synergy is going to continue to do amazing things under Rhonda's leadership.
I will continue to serve as Synergy's CEO through June 30, 2017. After I leave Synergy, I will be providing
coaching and consulting services to other schools.
Thanks for believing in our schools and thanks for all of your support all of these years!
With great appreciation,
Dr. Meg Palisoc
Co-Founder and CEO
