Dear 21C Families, just a quick note to share that we have a lot of great news coming. New leadership and promotions from within have led to many new hires and/or pending new hires. We have been aggressively recruiting math, science and English teachers, and aggressively trying to build a music and arts program. In addition, we’ve been recruiting for tutors. We know our students prefer in-person learning over online. You should already see results and you will continue to see more. Your children mean the world to us and we are working very hard to meet your demands. One last thought. If you want to engage and/or form a parent group, please let us know. Dr. Pete Morikis is very interested in assisting. Please let him know your interests. Together, we can only get better. Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less
