The South Campus Serials – 1.22.21

This week’s South Campus Serials brought to you by a special guest, our new culture and events coordinator, Dana Smith!

I am so happy for the opportunity to address you as your Culture and Events Coordinator and am so thankful for the opportunity to serve alongside you in this role to maintain the amazing atmosphere we have at our school.

For those of you who don’t me, I have been an Academy mom for 12 years. I have three boys at the Academy in 11th grade, 9th grade and 5th grade traditional. (It’s very hard for me to believe I will be enrolling my oldest son for his senior year next year!) We have been incredibly blessed by our time at the Academy and can’t say enough about the impact it has had on our children and family. 

As Culture and Events Coordinator I will be serving our students and families in our various special events on and off campus. It has been a very, um…interesting year to start this job since we all know nothing has been normal. I was so grateful for your enthusiasm and involvement in our Drive Thru Christmas feast. I look forward to seeing all you Dads on February 24th for Donuts with Dads. 

As well as special events and fun activities on campus, I also coordinate our House Parents. With our current Covid precautions, unfortunately we haven’t been able to see you as often as we’d like. But, we are hopeful that next year we will be able to enjoy all our house events. And by the way, I could use your help! If you’d be interested in hearing more about what being a House Parent means, please fill out this form. Then I will contact you soon to get you more information. 

Please reach out to me if I can help you in any way!
