Congratulations to our teachers of the month for the 2023-24 school year!
Congratulations to Foundation Academy for winning an Outstanding Attendance award at the annual leadership summit held this July. Foundation Academy was one of 10 schools across the ACCEL network that achieved an Average Daily Attendance (ADA) of 92% or higher – no small feat in a year where schools nationwide reported high rates of pandemic-related absenteeism.
Recognizing the hard work and success of our schools and school leaders is an important tradition at ACCEL Schools. While schools across the country are still recovering from challenges related to the pandemic, we have seen a surge in success from schools serving historically underrecognized communities.
“We are mission driven to make quality education available to all children regardless of geographic location or life circumstances,” said ACCEL Schools CEO Ron Packard who presented the awards on July 17. “It is an honor to recognize the staff and leadership who are putting ACCEL’s ideals into action and creating positive change in the lives of the students and communities who need it most.”
Congratulations to every member of our Foundation Academy community for contributing to our success in 2023. We are honored to accept this Accely award on behalf of our entire team and look forward to another great school year.
Our annual re-enrollment process is now open for current families! Invitations have been sent via email to re-enroll using the method that is most convenient for your family (online at https://bit.ly/3wPVsCi, in-person, or paper form). Your early decision and response helps us plan effectively for the upcoming school year. Thank you again for being part of our school family!
The Local Wellness Policy is a written document that guides a local educational agency’s (LEA) or school district’s efforts to establish a school environment that promotes students’ health, well-being, and ability to learn. The Wellness Policy Committee has been created as an effort to manage and develop our school’s healthy habits.
» A Wellness Committee will be appointed to each school
» The committee may include parents and guardians, students, representatives of the school nutrition program, physical education teachers, or any other interested stakeholder that is aligned with the goals of the policy

This is a great opportunity to help promote and support student health and wellness, and create a positive, safe, and health-promoting learning environment. Please contact email@example.com for more information.

Greetings Foundation Academy Families:
On behalf of the staff, I am happy to welcome you to the 2021-22 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will continue to work together to provide our scholars the best opportunities in preparing them to be productive citizens and creative, critical thinkers!
We are proud to announce that have some great projects planned for this upcoming school year. We are installing another playground area off the west wing doors featuring a Gaga Pit. We will also be utilizing our traverse wall in the gym. We are expanding our cafeteria equipped with sound-proof barriers. Each classroom now will be completed with a doc camera and an interactive or SmartBoard for teaching and learning.
I would also like to introduce Mrs. Deb Rife, our new assistant principal. She joined us July 1, 2021 and brings a wealth of experience and skills to our community.
Again, we thank you for choosing Foundation Academy as your choice of educational advancement and success. Our door remains open and I welcome your questions, concerns, and suggestions. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment with our Administrative Assistant, Miss Julie Cornell. We look forward to making this year our best year yet!
Yours in Education,
Mitzi Kimani, Principal
