Dean's Annual Message

August 2020

Greetings! Welcome to the Founders Academy Public Charter School!

We are entering our seventh year as a school community focused on our pillars of
character-building, leadership, U.S. History and liberty in grades 6-12. Our school's mission continues to
guide our character, curriculum, and culture at Founders.

We know this year will present new challenges for all of us. By following the Leadership Code of
Conduct, and finding new opportunities to lead we will come out stronger on the other side of this
pandemic.

For teachers, new opportunities to broaden their lessons, challenge their students, and advance
the mission of the school will be a part of daily life. This new way of life will encourage teachers to
expand on their creativity and enhance instruction through the Socratic seminar, Harkness Method,
project-based learning, and other teaching styles outlined in our charter.

Parents and donors will play a vital role in creating a safe and productive learning environment
for all students. We know each family has their own obstacles to overcome but together we will succeed.
We are all in this together and look forward to a new chapter in our school, education and world.
We look forward to seeing you all in a mask or on Zoom soon! Have a great year!
