Dear UMA Families,
We began the school year having reached our goal of re-opening UMA at a new downtown site. By the end of the year, we were working through a worldwide pandemic and the reckoning of our own societal shortcomings. Amy and I would like to thank you for the partnership between the school and your family as we reflect on this school year. The feedback, communication, and input we received have been appreciated. One of the things that makes UMA special is the opportunity to speak more intimately with families when it comes to issues of a child’s education.
UMA will examine and incorporate data and comments collected from surveys regarding distance learning as planning for next year moves into high gear. The school will consider what went well and what can be improved. More information about the start of the 2020 school year will be communicated later this summer.
On a personal note, I would like to thank you for the opportunity to work with you and your child(ren) over these past two years. I will be leaving UMA at the end of this month and will have many positive memories of the students here; I have enjoyed seeing their growth. I wish you and your family well.
