Hello, Achieve Language Academy Families!

It’s another great day to be a part of this incredible community.


Please note the following information:

  • Wednesday, October 20, we will celebrate Unity Day. Students are encouraged to wear ORANGE to help promote acceptance of all students, anti-bullying, and unity. Students may also receive a ticket to redeem as a non-uniform day during the week of October 25-29.

  • There is NO SCHOOL on October 21-22 due to the Education Minnesota (MEA) break.

  • Fall Conferences will begin soon. It is also important to remember that conferences will be held virtually this year. Please watch for information from your student’s classroom teacher on how to access the online conferences.

  • October 27, Evening Conferences Available

  • October 28, Evening Conferences Available

  • October 29, School Hours Conferences Available

  • Also, remember that there is NO SCHOOL on Friday, October 29.

  • The ALA Board of Directors has open positions for Parents and Community Members. If you, or someone you know is interested in potentially joining the Board, please let Dr. Windham know. Dr. Windham will then forward this information to the Board Membership Sub-Committee.

  • The ALA Board of Directors also continues to work on finalizing the new Strategic Plan. The current goal is to present this plan at the January Board meeting, which will establish the course for the school over the next 3-5 years. All parents, students and stakeholders will be invited to attend this meeting. However, before the full rollout of the Strategic Plan has been finalized, students and parents will be invited to join in a special meeting before Winter Break to hear the proposed plan and provide feedback during the meeting. The date of this meeting will be shared once the draft of the Strategic Plan has been completed by the Board of Directors. Please watch for these important meetings as we work to plan our future together.


Thank you and have a wonderful day.
