Welcome to Envision Science Academy

Envision Science Academy is a K-8 STEAM public charter school that provides tuition-free education to all students. Join us in the pursuit of excellence at Envision.
”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
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)
Turkey Trot and Canned Food Drive
Envision will hold a Turkey Trot and Canned Food Drive on Thursday, November 21st. We will be collecting canned and non-perishable food items to donate to the local food shelter. Items may be dropped off at the front office.
The Turkey Trot is a 1.5 mile walk/jog that will take place in the front parking lot of our campus during the time students would normally have their "Specials" classes. All classes will participate in the walk/jog, and parents are more than welcome to join us. Please remind students to wear sneakers and jackets on Thursday, as it may be cold outside. If the weather does not cooperate with us, we will reschedule the Turkey Trot for Friday. Please contact Coach Ziminski with any questions at email@example.com.
Yearbook planning is underway and we'd like you to send pictures from school events (starting with Spirit Week) to firstname.lastname@example.org 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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
