Aspen Academy announces the appointment of Dana Kohls to the position of Interim Lower School Director for the 2017-18 academic year.
Since January, the 8th graders have developed a business idea, written business plans, created and sold products and pitched their ideas to a group of judges. After months of preparation they entered the Aspen Academy Shark Tank as their Capstone project. Here, they presented their business ideas and competed for first place to win seed money for their venture.
1st place: Emily R. (RudSpice)
2nd place: Holly S. (Beads for Dad)
3rd place: Parker D. (Tuber)
Brady M. (The Basketball Mustache) and Grace Y. (Ballet Barre) also made it to the finals
The middle school girls had the opportunity to hear from Kind Campaign Founders Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson on the topic of girl on girl bully. The girls were tasked with filling out a Kind Pledge, a Kind Apology, and a Kind Card. They took their pledges and made them public on our Kind Wall. Our girls walked away from the assembly with a renewed sense of our founding rule, to be kind, and a connection with each other like never before.
Aspen Academy has introduced the Aspen Entrepreneurial Institute Financial Literacy and Financial Management curriculum! From Pre-Kindergarten to 8th Grade, students are excited to learn about money.
"The school has been effective in establishing powerful practices that assist in meeting the needs of students especially when they are coupled with the improvement priorities identified by the External Review Team. The school's leaders overwhelmingly demonstrate both a commitment to and habit of continuous improvement. The whole community lives its mission and adheres to its values in a culture committed to high expectations where all stakeholders hold one another accountable for academic growth, character building, and community service. Aspen Academy has been most effective in building its capacity for establishing a high quality educational program and developing continuous improvement practices to help students excel."
