Weekly Parent Email – July 15, 2022

July 15, 2022

Summer is an exciting time for families. There are so many experiences that provide meaningful growth and development for our children. While many of these experiences happen outside the classroom, they are equally meaningful and engaging.

For my family, these summer experiences have been some of the most memorable. Whether it’s working as a family in the garden, camping, or relaxing at our relatives’ homes, I remember seeing my children grow throughout the summer.

I also want you to know that we are busy preparing for next year! Our team is excited to support you in providing the most meaningful education possible for your child, and I look forward to working with you along the way.

Our partnership with Williamsburg Learning is also vibrant and strong. Williamsburg continues to develop cutting-edge experiences that promote leadership, communication, respect, and a quality liberal arts education. I have yet to see another program that provides this level of educational opportunity for students.

We look forward to a rich and rewarding school year! And in the meantime, I hope you’re getting the most out of your summer learning experiences as a family.

Warmest regards,

John Tripp

Executive Director, LAU
