”After a certain high level of technical skill is achieved, science and art tend to coalesce in esthetics, plasticity and form. The greatest scientists are artists as well.” – Albert Einstein
Currently, the board of directors is working through the process of developing the admissions policy and lottery processes for the 2015-2016 academic year. We would like to invite you to join us for an open forum this Friday, Dec 19th, from 4:30-5:30 PM at Envision Science Academy. Childcare will be provided.
Our desired outcomes for the meeting are to share with you our vision in regards to the future student population. When making important decisions, like policies, we desire your feedback. During the meeting, there will be an opportunity for public comment and questions. We will do our best to answer each question. This may occur at the meeting or through follow up communication.

Now Accepting Resumés
Envision’s student body is growing, and we are looking to expand our administrative team, teaching staff, and support personnel. We will offer grades K–7 for the 2015-2016 academic school year. We are currently accepting resumés for several positions, thus creating a pool of candidates for our interview process which will begin February 2015.

Design Challenge Fair
Yearbook planning is underway and we'd like you to send pictures from school events (starting with Spirit Week) to email@example.com and include the grade, class, and name of student, whenever possible. **We will not use candid photos of children if a "photograph opt out" form was submitted.**
Volunteering and Substitute Teaching
When volunteering, we must insist that you maintain the strictest confidence with information gained through interactions with students and teachers. 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 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. Also, if you are interested in being a substitute teacher, please email Mr. Pond at firstname.lastname@example.org.
