Dear Students, Parents, and Community Members,
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer vacation. As we prepare for a new school year beginning in August, we have exciting things happening at Lee Academy!
First of all, I am excited to let you know that we received our MAIS accreditation rating at the end of the school term. For the second straight year, we applied for and received an A rating for both elementary and secondary, because we meet or exceed all the standards for accreditation. Seventeen of the 23 graduates in the Class of 2013 received the Arkansas Academic Scholarship. They also received numerous other scholarships including the Arkansas Governor’s Scholarship (Allie Hickman). We are very proud of our accreditation rating, but we are even more proud of our students.
We also have a few major projects in progress this summer. We are excited for the new hardwood gym floor and the other gym renovations that will help us improve the physical appearance of our facility. We want to thank the Men’s Association and the Booster Club for their efforts in this project. If you have a chance to come by the school, we invite you to take a peek.
We have also installed a new security system which includes 16 video cameras and a buzzer entry system. We are now able to monitor the entire campus both inside and out plus identify any visitors that come to our doors. Safety is a major priority at our school, and we are so thankful to the Men’s Association for providing this service for us.
We have a new and improved website! We have partnered with School Webmasters to create a visually pleasing and organized website for your informational needs. We invite you to browse the pages of our new site to find bus routes, lunch menus, and registration information as well as a school calendar to keep you up-to-date with the activities at Lee Academy. Please bookmark our site and visit often.
Finally, as we continue our registration process, we are excited to welcome several new families. New students often come our way because they have heard from a friend or neighbor what a great school Lee Academy is to prepare students for the future. We appreciate your help in spreading the word! If you know of anyone that you think would be a good fit for us, please let us know. Working together, we can continue to grow and improve.
Thank you so much for your support and commitment to Lee Academy. I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer.
