Hello Prep Academy students and families!

The print shop has completed printing of the Unit 2 materials for Math 7.  Please come by Central Academy, 1912 Grand Ave, to pick up two workbooks. You’ll need Unit 2 parts1 and 2. Students have had access to the digital version of these materials in Canvas.  The print copies give students an opportunity to work “off-screen”.

Print copies are on the left table in the front foyer.  Our doors are unlocked from 8 – 4. You can park in the drive way and just dash in.

If you want us to mail them to you, please complete this SURVEY.

If you did not pick up your Welcome to Academy bag (pictured below), just let us know when you get here and we’ll get it for you!

Novel Pick up Map

English books for 8th grade classes have been delayed:

Next week your English classes will begin using the novel, “Metamorphosis”.  We’ve had problems with our supplier filling our order for this title.  We hope it will come in this week, but it may be next week before it arrives.  Our back up plan is to provide you with an online copy at no cost.

The second book you need for your class, “The House on Mango Street” has arrived.  However, to reduce the number of times you must come to the building, we will distribute both books together when Metamorphosis comes in.

Of course, the pandemic has impacted some of our suppliers.  We loaded the bags with everything that had been delivered.  And we were able to purchase online subscriptions to textbooks and simulations for some of our classes in the Sciences and Social Sciences. So, when some people got their bags, they were empty.  *Heavy sigh*  If I were to do it again, I’d put a note in every bag that would include this additional information:

ENGLISH NOVELS:

Our English novels and some of our math workbooks did not arrive as expected.  We are planning smaller pick up events to distribute those materials that are arriving late. Please take this SURVEY to help us design the distribution procedure that would work for your family.  We’ll let you know as soon as the materials arrived. Our focus will be on Term 1 classes first, then Term 2 classes.

MISSED THE PICK-UP EVENT:

Some people were not able to come to materials pick up last week. When you log into your classes on Tuesday, your teacher will check if you have the materials you need.  If you did not get your bag and you have Term 1 classes that need materials, please come to Academy during school hours (8 – 4).  When you are in our driveway, give us a call (515-242-7888) and we’ll bring your bag out to you.

GOT THE WRONG STUFF OR MISSING STUFF:

Students, if you get something in your bag that you don’t need any more or by mistake, or if you are missing something, please fill out this ERROR REPORT.  We’ll work out a plan to make it right as soon as possible. (Students must use their log in credentials to complete the error report so we can sync with our library system.)

MATERIALS FOR TERM 2 CLASSES:

If the materials you need are for a Term 2 class, you can always come and get your materials or your bag in October.
