About Our School
August 1, 2022
Dear Speedway Avenue School Families,
It is with great pleasure that I extend a warm welcome to you and your family at the start of a new year filled with hope and high expectations. This will be a milestone year for our school as your child transitions into a new grade level and for some of our students, their first school experience. I am honored to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education and culture! I look forward to continuing the work of serving our students, growing our staff, and continuing the hard work and dedication it takes to achieve the high expectations we all know are possible.
We are excited to remind you that the first day of school is Tuesday, September 6th! School will begin promptly at 8:25am. Masks are still mandatory. You will receive additional information regarding our Ingress Procedures in the next few weeks. Here are some important dates and reminders to keep you informed leading up to the first day of school:
- Welcome Back BBQ & Supply Giveaway - Saturday August 20th, 12:00 - 3:00 p.m.
In collaboration with The Bridge Movement Global, we welcome all Speedway families to attend the Welcome Back BBQ and pick up a free backpack, supplies, sneakers, clothes, food, and more. The supplies will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis and all students must be accompanied by an adult. This will be a great opportunity to welcome new and returning staff. Lunch applications and school registration must be complete.
