Greetings STRIVE Prep Excel Families,

We are thrilled to to welcome students back for the 2018-19 school year! As we move into our 6th year, we are excited for what is in store. This year, we are excited to offer new classes, like computer science and financial literacy. We will be opening our lion's den, which is our student lounge. We will be kicking off our peer mentorship program where our upperclassmen will work with 9th graders to help them through high school. Our committed staff is more prepared than ever to support our students in being their best selves and we are thrilled to continue partnering with you to make our students's school experience great. We would like to invite you to join us for back to school night which will be on Thursday August 30th at 5pm as well as our family council meetings which will be the second Tuesday of every month at 5:30. Our first meeting will be Tuesday September 11th at 5:30 and we hope to see you then!

In service,

Ben Lewis
