Welcome Back to School!

Dear IATS Families,

Welcome Back!
I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your student.

We have learned a great deal from our first year and despite the challenges that may arise, we must always believe in our ability to rise above these challenges and come out stronger on the other end. Based on the work we did this summer; all signs point to having an incredible and productive school year. Our enrollment has grown this year and we had an 80% retention rate of returning students. Our team is excited and ready to serve our students and families.

I am excited about the new staff that has joined our school this year. Let me introduce you to our new staff:

Parent Advisory Council

We are very blessed to have outstanding parents in our school. As partners, we share the responsibility for our student’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. Our Parent Advisory Council provides that direct connection of partnership to our school community. They serve as a liaison to our school team and Board of Directors.
