Dear Teachers,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year at Ivy Hawn Charter School of the Arts. We have had six wonderful & highly successful years. We expect 2017-2018 to be even better!

The high quality of our programs, climate & student achievement were due to the efforts of an outstanding faculty & staff who lived the Ivy Hawn Way every day.

“I will do my best every day.

I will treat others with kindness and respect.

I will take responsibility for my words, choices, and actions.”

For the 2017-2018 school year,  we have added exciting new electives, provide exciting opportunities for new and increased success for students in academics and the arts. Additionally, we streamlined operational procedures & processes for our faculty & staff.

I am so pleased to be the Principal of Ivy Hawn and so excited about what we will do together in 2017-2018. Ivy Hawn is a special place where the adults support one simple mission: “To foster intelligence, individuality and artistry for a lifetime.” As the Principal of this K-8 School, I feel that my main responsibility is to ensure that our staff, policies, and organization produce successful students in all walks of life. College & career readiness skills must be part of what we provide in 2017-2018.

This year we will continue the tradition of excellence and broaden & deepen its meaning in all that we do. I encourage you to remember that the career you have chosen provides the best hope there is for influencing the future of our world.

Have a great year,

Kelly Conway
