Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 

Great work yesterday everyone.  Students, teachers and parents were all very engaged in learning throughout the day. It is so apparent that WE ARE COMMUNITY -- it was so awesome to see everyone be there for others; helping each other throughout the day.

My personal expression of gratitude today is that I have the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people in the Aspen Academy community.  Thank you all for being YOU! 

There's a FREE webinar for parents supporting students with ADHD at home available here.

Please continue to reach out directly at if I can help with anything at all along the way.  I can be reached via email or directly in Google Hangouts.

Be Safe and Be Well, Mr. Skipwith
