By MHANews – Highlands Ranch, Colorado … Mile High Academy continued with their summer of reconnect on July 12 with a meet-and-greet event for incoming high school students, featuring fellowship, food, and new connections.
The event, attended by 50 students, staff, and families, was a chance to welcome new students to MHA.
“It was fun meeting the new students, getting a chance to see my classmates and spending some time visiting with the families,” Logan Bryant, high school student commented.
The evening began with Andrew Carpenter, new MHA principal, sharing plans for the upcoming school year. The gathering continued with a friendly game of kickball between teams consisting of students and families. While some were enjoying participating in the game, others enjoyed watching the competition, while relaxing and socializing, and cooling down with ice cream treats.
“It truly was a special evening,” Jocelyn Aalborg, vice principal of finance and development, expressed. “We really appreciate our [high] school teachers for organizing the evening’s events so our students and families could reconnect. It felt good to be together, to laugh, to answer questions and to once again see what a great group of students and parents we have in our school family.”
As summer lingers, MHA continues to offer fellowship events for students and families. There are weekly Monday evening baseball pick-up games for the third through fifth graders plus monthly events for others. The next family gathering is for the incoming preschool through second grade at Redstone Park on July 21.
