Executive Director's Welcome
October 1, 2020
Dear Salem Academy Community,
I am honored and humbled to begin serving as the Interim Executive Director for the remainder of this school year. I have been a proud member of our Navigator community for the past thirteen years in various roles and it is a privilege to serve in this new capacity. I look forward to working with all of you in support of our students and staff this year.
In Kathy Egmont’s three years with us she has overseen the expansion of our student body, staff, and facilities, as well as the creation of our current five year strategic plan. I am grateful that she is leaving us with a strong foundation on which to build the coming years.
Our school year is underway and our first in-person hybrid week is complete. Thank you for your support and communication as we launched a completely new school program this fall. As we move throughout the year we continue to put these guiding principles at the forefront of our decision making: health and safety, student engagement, flexibility, and community.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we know that many people have been financially impacted and we have established an emergency response fund to help our families in need. If you have the ability, consider giving a gift today in order to support our community when they need it most.
Finally, we have some important events coming up in the next few weeks:
- October 7th at 6pm: SFC Meeting, our parent group with the ED search firm, Edgility
- October 16th to 18th: Wellness Weekend, our first major fundraiser of the year
My (virtual) door is always open to you. Our success as a community relies on clear and open communication. I can’t wait to engage with you so we can grow Salem Academy and grow awareness for the important work we do.
Interim Executive Director
