We have been working hard over recent months to reach out to our parent community and the Greater Brookline Community, involve you in efforts, and partner with you to further improve your child’s experience in our school. I have been impressed and inspired every day since joining your school at CSDA. The students, teachers, parents, and township are absolutely amazing, and it is a true privilege to be on your team. To continue our ongoing school improvement efforts (as great as we are, we can always get better!), we want you to be informed about what we are doing, and why. We need your input, collaboration, and partnership to reach our goal of maximizing learning outcomes for every student at the Captain Samuel Douglass Academy. To share important information about our school, its activities, and its initiatives, we have established the following communication channels: telephone, email, available staff, PowerAnnouncement, an updated website, weekly newsletters, classroom and department webpages, principal’s blog, and a new podcast channel. In the very near future, look for our new CSDA Student News Blog to be posted on our school website. Also, we will have a school video channel and produce programming for our local cable television channel (student participation with parent permission only!). Let’s stay in touch, and let’s work together to exceed our common, ambitious expectations for student learning at CSDA. Together, we will make CSDA truly spectacular!
