Weekly Parent Email – October 8, 2021

October 8, 2021

Each day as we work with your students, we are reminded of that famous quote by Socrates: “Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.” The more inspired and interested a student is in their subject, the more they will learn and retain. As we move into the midterm point of our semester next week, we encourage you and your children to focus on the journey more than the test. 

As a reminder, we will be out for Fall Break next Thursday and Friday (October 14-15). Our weekly email message will return the following week!

Sincerely,

Anya Yeager 

Executive Director, Williamsburg Academy
