American Academy (AA) could not wait to open its doors to all K-8 students. Thrilled to have their students back, Executive Director of Schools, Erin Kane – along with Castle Pines middle school Principal Michelle Daley, Castle Pines Mayor Tera Radloff and deputies from the the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office – warmly welcomed students back for the new year.
Parents also took part in the back-to-school spirit. With the help of the AA parent teacher organization, student families were able to secure a sidewalk spirit square for their returning student. With designs of bright chalk art graphics and words of encouragement, family trees and a little school humor, these sidewalk squares lifted the back-to-school spirits of all AA students and faculty.
