Greetings CSD Families,
Welcome to the No Excuses University at Charter School of the Dunes (CSD). We are dreamers, thinkers, and doers! I am elated to invite you to a new year at CSD and am honored to be the school-wide principal here. For our legacy families that have been with us for many years, thank you! You are the spark that ignites our school to keep moving forward. To our new families, welcome to an educational experience that balances academics with a strong family atmosphere!
We have set audacious goals for our students this year. Our number one goal at Charter School of the Dunes is that every CSD student, without exception or excuse, will be proficient or advanced in Math, Science, and English/Language Arts. I am proud to lead this effort to make this goal a reality for our students. Together, with parental support, this goal will be attained.
We truly believe that our students deserve the best and it is our personal commitment to ensure that our students receive a high quality education in a safe learning environment every single day.
Our team is excited about the possibilities for this year. They are a dream team; an elite group of highly-qualified, passionate teachers and staff that go above and beyond to meet the needs of our students. Our teachers lead with integrity, passion, and grit. Their content knowledge is exceptional and each day they give their very best to make sure our students are successful. You have entrusted your child's education with us, and our team will ensure that they receive a well-rounded, student-centered education.
Please take a moment to review the handbook with your child as it will provide specific information regarding operational structures and policies necessary to support our work of educating and enriching the lives of the students we serve. Should you ever have any questions, ideas, or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
We look forward to a powerful year filled with accomplishments and new beginnings. Come along for the journey. You'll be glad you did!
