Principal's Message


  • Mike McCarthy, Principal Phoenix Families!
    We are so excited to begin with our student scholars TOMORROW, Wednesday, September 6th! Our first class begins at 8:00am but our doors will open and breakfast will be served beginning at 7:30.
    As your scholar arrives tomorrow, they will be greeted by an incredible team of excited teachers ready to engage your scholar from day one! If you are interested in meeting these GREAT team members, please see this virtual introduction and the amazing preparation we have been doing to get ready for our scholars this summer: https://youtu.be/kS009bfaGK0.
    To get started ensuring all scholars begin in the correct place tomorrow, each scholar will pick up a newly printed schedule (one on colored paper) and this will be their ticket into first period. Most schedules are exactly as distributed during the Back to School event with the addition of elective courses. Some schedules show core class placements that have shifted slightly to ensure balance in numbers between classes as many the new registrations have been received since last week. As a general rule, schedules do tend to adjust over the first 2 weeks of a school year to accommodate incoming scholars and to ensure balance. We do our very best to set up each child for success with a balanced schedule and an amazing group of teachers this year.
    As shared in the summer information packet, student-scholars will also have the opportunity to select their preferred electives during the first week of school. These courses will be solidified during week two and we are very excited about the offerings scholars will engage in once they make their selections.
    Again, we cannot wait to welcome our new and returning Phoenix tomorrow!
    We'll see your scholar at the schedule pick up line inside The Forrest (our multipurpose space) tomorrow when busses arrive or as early as 7:30!

    Together We Rise!
    Mike McCarthy
