|A Note From Headmaster
Monday and Tuesday will be asynchronous learning days. Students will not report to campus nor will they join any zoom meeting for live instruction. Rather, they will work at home on assignments that will require the designated class and homework time to complete.
I end my blast by sharing news that you might have already heard. Mr. Kersting will become the Archway Scottsdale Headmaster next year. I am excited for this opportunity for him to bless another community. I am so thankful to Mr. Kersting for his influence in my life, given his role as colleague and friend. Please share your congratulations and farewells with him directly; I know he will appreciate it.
Next week the following students will have their panels:
House T-Shirt Day!
Students must wear: uniform shoes, a uniform belt, and uniform pants/shorts/skirt. Students have the option of wearing either their house shirt or their uniform shirt.
How else can students show their House Spirit?
