Greetings Imagine Andrews Families,

It’s a great day at Imagine Andrews! I hope everyone is enjoying the summer break and staying cool.

I would like to welcome all returning families to a new school year and all new families to the Imagine Andrews Family. As we move into the 2023-2024 school year, we are excited about the implementation of several new initiatives and already existing initiatives.

Listed below are the “Big Rocks” for the 2023-2024 school year: Big Rocks for 2023-2024

●  Charter School Renewal Process

●  Attendance

●  Emphasis on Mathematics

●  Social Emotional Learning

●  Emphasis on Shared Values & Character Development

I am looking forward to a great school year of teaching & learning and I look forward to partnering with families to continue the tradition of having excellence in all we do. We are committed to 100% effort, 100% of the time!

The first official day of school for all scholars is August 28, 2023. The schoolhouse doors will open at 8:05 a.m. for scholars. Breakfast will be served daily from 8:05 a.m. - 8:25 a.m. Kindergarten through 4th grade will dismiss at 2:40 p.m. Grades 5-8 will dismiss at 3:10 p.m. At that time, scholars will begin going to their classes.
