Principal's Message

Happy New Year! We would like to welcome everyone back from the winter break and hope that all were able to enjoy the time to relax and participate in some memorable activities with family and friends. As we move into the second half of the 2017-2018 school year, we want to welcome any families who are new to Young Diplomats Magnet Academy and trust that you will find yourselves to be part of an outstanding and supportive learning community.

In addition to making sure that your child is here on time for morning routines, we also ask our families to continue to be mindful of early dismissal habits as well. Although there are times when an occasional early dismissal is necessary for an appointment or urgent family need, they should be minimal as this loss of instructional time can certainly affect a student’s performance. As always, we appreciate your support as our teachers and students strive to maximize their instructional time shared each day.

As we move into the winter months, all children go outside for recess throughout the winter unless the wind chill temperature becomes unbearable.  Therefore, we ask that you please make sure your child is dressed warmly enough to enjoy this part of our instructional
day.  Our expectation is that all children who are well enough to come to school are well enough to participate in recess.  Please plan accordingly.

From the Parent Coordinator

As we gear up for another exciting school year, I'm excited to assure that my purpose here at Young Diplomats Magnet Academy is to serve as a helpful resource to our families.  Coming into the 2017-2018 school year; I encourage all parents to communicate creative ideas and concerns that many of us have regarding your child's education.  My role in partnership with the principal is to facilitate support networks and workshops of interest to you.
