Dear CSMA family,

Welcome to a new school year! It is with great pleasure that we write to welcome you to the 2015-2016 school year at Classical Studies Magnet Academy. We hope that your summer has been filled with fun family activities enjoyed at a leisurely pace under beautiful, blue skies filled with sunshine. Summer concludes quickly and our thoughts turn to preparing for the beginning of another school year. This is always an exciting time of the year.

The Classical Studies Magnet Academy staff looks forward to the honor of working with the parents and community to provide another year of educational opportunities for our scholars. The type of education that enables each scholar to have the courage and academic understanding to reach for any goal and overcome any challenge so that every child can truly realize they have the ability to become whatever they dream. I would like to challenge each scholar attending CSMA this school year to have the courage to reach for their dreams and the commitment to complete the hard work it takes to achieve the goals. Developing courage and backing it with hard work will help allow each scholar to have the confidence in their abilities so they can earn successes they can be proud of accomplishing.

Our educators at CSMA are excited about the new students they will have in their classes and wait with great anticipation for the opportunity to help develop the potential abilities in each child. As you know, education takes everyone working together. With a commitment to courage and hard work I am convinced every student can be successful. I would like to encourage each parent to make a commitment to working hand-in-hand with the school in order to give our scholars the best education available.

Once again, welcome back to another exciting school year. 

With great excitement,

Helen D. Giles, Principal
