Spring Orientation a Success!
Thank you to all of the families and volunteers who helped make our spring orientation successful. Together we made sure that students ate well, played hard, worked even harder, and made meaningful connections with their classmates. Best of all, orientation always includes casual introductions to the term’s cluster topics, so students will be able to hit the ground running when classes start today.
Welcome New Students and Families
As we begin our spring term, we want to welcome the new students and families that have joined us recently. Orientation is a great opportunity for new students to meet their classmates and teachers in a fun, relaxed, and supportive environment. We look forward to getting to know families as well over the coming months. Welcome new community members: we’re glad you’re here!
We have begun planning for the Spring Auction, our biggest fundraiser of the year. If you would like to be a part of the team please contact Tania. In addition, we are currently collecting items for the event. If you have a connection to a local business or would like to donate something, please let us know.
All families should have received tuition and re-enrollment information for next year. Current Explorations students will be eligible for priority enrollment until Monday, April 1, at which point we will begin accepting applications from new students. To ensure your family’s place at Explorations Academy next year, please complete that paperwork along with the enrollment fee by March 31. We are happy to print out materials for any family that requires a hard copy. Please contact Bacchus if you have any questions.
Student Volunteers for Big Consent Event
Students with a track record of completing all their work are invited to represent Explorations Academy at the Big Consent Event, hosted by Whatcom Community College on Friday, March 1. Please check out Big Consent Event’s website for more information.
Last Week of Matching Offer
Don’t miss your chance to double your contribution to EA! During the month of February, all donations to the school will be matched up to $5000. These matching funds have been pooled by several supporters of the school, including Bacchus who is donating his paycheck for the month he spent leading the Vietnam Expedition. We are happy to accept your donation at the school or through our donation page.
As always, thank you for supporting a world-class education.
