Las Cruces Academy

The Las Cruces Academy is running in distance-education mode. Our teachers have set up resources for students online and for pick-up, class content and schedules, and electronic technologies – email, Zoom, Hangouts, ClassDojo, Getepic, Quizlet, DropBox, and diverse online video and text sites.  We continue our outreach, at  Teacher Mark Leisher upgraded our network cabling to be ready for August.

Schools need to function as sources of good, actionable information about COVID-19. We, the Las Cruces Academy, have secured excellent information. Our Board of Trustees and our teachers, who count among themselves 3 PhDs in the sciences and experienced teachers with advanced degrees, have reviewed this information.  We offer a summary of critical points with a link to an excellent presentation by Dr. Michael Lin of Stanford University.

Giving Tuesday, 2019 … and beyond. Our students welcome you to our Giving Tuesday page, which you can reach here. Our goal: assure that our non-profit private school keeps serving children from early kindergarten through 8th grade. Please take the opportunity to work with us, with funds and volunteer work.

Children spend afternoons, weekends and summers in aftercare and camps while their parents work. The areas where children once congregated for unstructured, unsupervised play are now often off limits.”

Las Cruces Academy is a relief in the desert of emotional-social development; with offerings ranging from self-organized free play to art and music classes where creativity can flow freely. Keep reading.
