First Day of School Tuesday, September 6th!
Welcome Back to School Message from Executive Director
Greetings Excell Academy students, parents, guardians, and families! This is Mrs. Sabrina Williams, the founder and Executive Director of the greatest school in the state of Minnesota, Excell Academy for Higher Learning. I welcome all of you back to school for our 22nd year of Changing Tomorrows for your Children Today! I have some very important information for the first week of school, so please read this message in its entirety.
This year, I am excited to welcome over 500 students and over 100 staff members and professional consultants who have collaborated to plan the Best Year Ever for our students academically and social-emotionally!
Excell Families, as we begin our first day of the school year tomorrow, I would like to remind you of a few very important ways you can partner with Excell Academy to ensure your student has the best possible learning experience this year:
First – Remember to have your student at school every single day. I cannot emphasize enough how important daily attendance is to your child’s academic and social success!
Second – Remember, Excell Academy is a uniform school and students are expected to wear the proper uniform every single day for the first two weeks of school and then every Monday through Thursday with Fridays being an optional uniform day after the first two weeks of school.
Third – Please be sure to return / submit all registration paperwork / forms if you have not already done so; this includes your families Educational Benefits Form (please turn it in signed even if you do not qualify for benefits; Excell will receive additional funding just for you signing it and submitting it to us).
Your child’s immunization records must also be submitted to Excell Academy immediately; if we don’t have your child’s most updated immunization records, this may cause a disruption in your child’s enrollment. Please remember, the state of MN requires all children to be fully immunized in order to attend public schools.
Next, and of great importance, please be sure your child gets 9-10 hours of sleep each night. This is a proven way to help your child’s brain development, ability to learn more effectively, and to be more cognitively receptive to critical and creative thinking and learning.
Finally, if you are dropping your student off at school, please note the student drop off and pick area is in the back of the building. If you are a new parent or a parent of a younger student and would like to walk your child to their classroom, please park in the front and for security and crowd control, please be sure to limit your time in the classroom to five minutes or less.
Please know it is our top priority to provide a safe, welcoming, and intellectually and socially engaging learning environment for our students. We thank you in advance for collaborating and cooperating with all policies and protocols as we make this the Best School Year ever for our students, staff, and families!
Have an enjoyable Labor Day holiday today, and we look forward to welcoming all of our wonderful students tomorrow morning at 8:45am!
Founder, Executive Director
