Team Academy News

Hello everyone! We are excited to get back into the building and the swing of things. Our team will spend the first week issuing lockers and going through the policies and procedures of the school. Your child(ren) will need the school supplies listed on the IRM School Supply List. Please reach out to Mrs. Smith if you have any questions/issues obtaining these items. The school will provide an agenda and Student Handbook on the first week of school. If it is lost, it can be replaced for $5 at the School Store, which is open during homeroom.

Team Academy’s Philosophy and Mission

Each member of Team Academy will be fully valued and will help establish acceptable behavioral norms that ensure that all members are safe and included in the community. It will be the responsibility of each team member to uphold their end of the commitment and to help hold others accountable as well. Here are the principles that establish the framework of the Full Value Commitment:

  • Safety (physical and emotional)

  • Commitment

  • Respect

  • Responsibility

Communication with Team Academy Teachers

All teachers on Team Academy view communication as an essential element in the success of our students. There are many ways in which you can communicate with the teachers if you have a question, comment, concern, or compliment! Our emails are listed above, that is the best way to contact us. The student agenda is also a simple form of contact that can be used. Additionally, you can call the school (578-7030) and ask to speak to any Teacher from Team Academy to schedule a team conference. We are available on Tuesdays, Thursday, and Fridays from 9:30 AM- 10:15 AM.
