Principal's Message

It does not seem possible that we are at the end of another school year; the year has flown by!  It is difficult to adequately express how much I have enjoyed this year and what an honor and privilege it has been working with such an incredible group of students, parents and staff members.  As I reflect on this year, we are blessed with so many wonderful people at Excel Academy. 
We are already looking forward to next year and I know that we will only continue to get better!  We are losing Mr. Cherry, he is moving back to Texas. We will have some new faces around Excel in August.  In math for grades 7/8 we will be welcoming Ms. Petcoff, she comes to us with great experience. Ashley Taylor will be our new teacher for our Social Emotional curriculum, she will work closely with Mrs. Bamat. Finally, Mrs. Anderson will have Angela Ruiz fill in as her long term sub in middle school. I am thrilled to welcome them to the staff and look forward to working with them!  I know they will be wonderful!  We are so excited about our new team members and cannot wait for all of you to meet them! 
Thank you again for giving me the opportunity to serve the students and parents of Excel Academy.  It is truly an honor.  I hope that everyone has a fabulous summer and I can't wait to see you in August!
Mrs. Gjellum
