We began this school year anticipating new adventures and accomplishments. The 2019-2020 year has delivered. Our theme this school year is “Rise Up”. The last month has shown what a tremendous community we have at Clyde C. Miller Career Academy. Every day I receive emails, calls and text celebrating the myriad of ways that our staff, students, parents and community members are supporting one another during this challenging time. I am so very proud to be a Phoenix! We are a Community of Love. Finish the year out strong.
I am excited to announce that the district secured a venue for an in-person graduation for the Class of 2020! Details regarding venue, date and time are forthcoming so please keep reading emails, listening to voicemails and checking social media post to stay abreast of the most up to date information. We all look forward to celebrating together. Prom is still under consideration. Both events are subject to local and state regulations as far as gathering size and social distancing. Administration will share information regarding senior checkout and the last class day for seniors early next week.
School is still in session. Although our building is closed, instruction is going forward on Microsoft Teams. Students can access their assignments, meeting times and teacher office hours by visiting our school website and following the directions outlined on the front page. Many students are feeling like what is the point? Why should they do posted assignments if they were happy with their 3rd quarter grade? Learning is the goal of school. Grades provide insight around mastery of content. Telling the whole story goes far beyond a piece of paper. Do the work for you. Remember who we are at CA and what our mission is, “Every student career and college ready”. Our core values at CA are Responsibility, Choices and Consequences. The choices we make today will have consequences down the line. The study habits developed today will pay off in the future. Please stay the course and commit to growing as learners by attempting to complete the uploaded lessons. We do understand that some students are experiencing extenuating circumstances. Please contact a teacher and/or staff member to arrange extended time to submit assignments. We are here to help.
Every day that passes, we miss our students even more! Please reach out if you need support or guidance during this time. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for updates and celebrations. Stay safe and healthy!
