Volunteering and Substitute Teaching

In the course of their time at ESA, volunteers and substitute teachers may become aware of information about the school and specific students, which may include such information as their academic performance, behavior, health, disabilities and related matters. By volunteering, participants must agree to not disclose or discuss any information about students, except with school employees who have a need to know. Please print and complete the volunteer/substitute confidentiality agreement at http://www.envisionscienceacademy.com/yahoo_site_admin/assets/docs/Volunteer_Confidentiality_Agreement.282160620.pdf and return it to the front office prior to your next volunteering or substitute teaching experience.
If you are interested in volunteering or substituting, please complete a background check at http://www.envisionscienceacademy.com/parents/volunteering. Also, if you are interested in being a substitute teacher, please email Mr. Pond at email@example.com.
Envision will be closed on Tuesday, November 11, for a teacher professional development day, during which we will engage our faculty in training related to differentiated instruction, interdisciplinary units, and project-based learning. We will be open on our regular schedule on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday that week.
November 17-21 will be our first “Spirit Week!” On spirit days, students may dress in appropriately fitting attire that reflects the following themes. If not in themed attire, students should wear their regular school uniforms.
Monday - Pajama Day (PJs should be weather/school appropriate and worn with regular shoes.)
Tuesday - Favorite Story/Book Character Day (Let's bring these great characters to life at ESA!)
Wednesday - “Wacky Tacky” Day (Dress in clothes that are silly and/or clash in color, pattern or style!)
Thursday - Career Day (Dress as something that you might want to be when you grow up!)
Friday - ESA T-shirt and Jeans Day (moving forward, we will do t-shirt/jeans day at least monthly!)
Official Envision Science Academy spirit wear is on sale now and will end on Nov 2nd. We will not be stocking any extra shirts or sweatshirts for sale, so place your order ASAP. Please note, these will be distributed in time for our ESA T-shirt & Jeans Day. To place your order, visit http://stores.inksoft.com/Envision_spirit.
Greetings current and future ESA parents. Information regarding the 2015-2016 enrollment and admissions process will be posted soon. Open house events and tours will be scheduled for late fall and early winter, prior to the lottery. Tours are not currently available during the school day as they disrupt instructional time and present a security issue. Please visit our website often and sign up to receive emails regarding the latest enrollment information. Thank you for your interest in Envision Science Academy!
