Dear Alumni, Donors, and Friends:
Last month Assistant Principal Mary Lakey and I had the tremendous opportunity to attend the National Charter Schools Conference (NCSC 23) in Austin, TX. NCSC 23 proved to be a remarkable experience providing opportunities to exchange innovative ideas, gain insights into emerging educational practices, and connect with passionate individuals who share our commitment to providing exceptional education.
As I reflect on our participation in NCSC 23, I am reminded of a quote from author Jim Stovall that resonates deeply with me: “Education is a lifelong journey whose destination expands as you travel.”
I firmly believe that investing in professional development not only benefits our dedicated faculty and staff but also translates into enhanced educational experiences for our students. It is through ongoing education that we continue to provide high-quality arts-integrated instruction and nurture the talents of each student at Harding Fine Arts Academy.
I would like to express my gratitude for your unwavering support in our pursuit of professional development opportunities. It is your belief in our mission and your dedication to the growth of our school that empowers us to continually strive for excellence.
As we move forward, we will be sharing the knowledge and insights gained at NCSC 23 with our faculty and staff, incorporating innovative practices into our classrooms, and leveraging our learnings to create an even more vibrant and engaging educational environment for our students.
Thank you once again for your ongoing support and for being an integral part of the Firehawk Family. Together, let us continue to embrace the value of lifelong learning and empower our students to achieve their dreams and make a positive impact on the world.
Yours in ARTS,
Taylor C. Stanton
