OPA Message 6/11/2021

As we wind down the school year, I want to thank all of our champions, staff, and families for an amazing, if somewhat unique, school year. Although this year saw many changes to the way students received instruction, our professors and support staff ensured that all students continued to receive extremely high-quality academic experiences, no matter what instructional model they participated in. It is because of this dedication and our high OPA standards that our champions have shown academic growth based on end of year assessments that is on par with a normal school year. This is a tremendous accomplishment and one that could only happen at OPA!! And these accomplishments will allow us to head into the new school year strong.

Dear OPA Families, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! As you are aware, each Friday we have a minimum day for students in order to provide staff with professional development and time to meet with their Professional Learning Communities (PLCs). On Friday, our professors met with their grade level teams to review, grade and discuss students’ argumentative essays. Each student from every grade level wrote their argumentative essay as part of our writing assessments per trimester.
