2017-18 Back to School Family Letter
Dear AXL Families,
Welcome to the 2017-18 academic year! We are excited and honored you have chosen to partner with us for your scholar's education. As you are preparing for back to school, we are sharing key dates, dress code information, orientation scheduling and more. Thank you for supporting AXL Academy and your scholar’s bright future!
EXCITING ADDITIONS FOR 2017-18
Art & P.E.: Creativity inspires scholars and our robust art & physical education programs will have dedicated space and classes for each scholar.
Technology: Each classroom is now equipped with interactive boards to encourage hands-on learning. We have also expanded our handheld technology and each scholar will interact with a tablet or laptop on a regular basis. We have also added a new middle school robotics elective and middle school technology based music elective.
Safe Communities Safe Schools: AXL Academy was selected as one of the pioneers to begin a program which will provide training and support for increased safety, bullying prevention and for the continued growth of our positive school culture.
Field Work: In support of our mission and vision, AXL Academy has drastically increased self-funding for field work for all scholars.
AXL is transitioning more than our school colors with our rebranding; our dress code is also getting a refresh to aid with our robust field work and student comfort. The 2017-18 year is adding more options as we transition to our new dress code which will take effect in the 2018-19 academic year. The excerpt below is from our handbook which is available on our website, www.axlacademy.org.
2017-18 Year: Scholars may wear a plain navy blue, green or grey polo shirt with a collar, either short- or long-sleeved. AXL’s logo on polo shirts is optional on polo shirts only. All scholars will also be permitted to wear t-shirts; all t-shirts must have AXL logo. To order t-shirts, visit main office for more information. Scholars must wear solid colored pants with an appropriate fit, condition, and length. Shorts, skirts, skorts and jumpers must be knee-length.
2018-19 Year: Solid (no graphics), non-hooded, navy blue or grey colored shirt with logo. Scholars must wear solid colored pants with an appropriate fit, condition, and length. Shorts, skirts, skorts and jumpers must be knee-length.
