CORINTH CLASSICAL ACADEMY
CORINTH CLASSICAL ACADEMY
Dear Corinth Classical Academy Parents and Students,
Movies are full of phrases which are intended to make them memorable. From the iconic E.T. phone home to the equally iconic may the Force be with you, movie lines can bring us joy. But there are movie lines which border on the absurd. One such line is from the 1970’s film Love Story. The quote, love means never having to say you’re sorry, catapulted the film to a host of awards and is considered the 9th most romantic film of all time. But does love mean never having to say you’re sorry??? As parents and teachers, we understand the foolishness of such a statement. Oftentimes, the only way we can show that we love someone is to ask for and give forgiveness.
I was reminded of this last weekend when reflecting on our Veteran’s Day celebration and what we did well and what could have been done better. Communication is very important for the success of our school. I want to personally apologize for the miscommunication leading up to last Friday’s celebration including the mishap during our National Anthem. Better communication from me could have avoided this. Many parents have reached out to me to offer suggestions for how things might be done next year. Your thoughts and input are always very much appreciated. My promise to you is that we as an administrative team will focus on clearer communication in the future.
I hope you have a blessed week!

The Grammar campus will be Closed for Benchmark Testing- December 3, 4, 5, 10, 11. Closed campus means that visitors are not allowed on campus while testing is going on. Furthermore, we ask that parents do not schedule doctors’ appointments during our Benchmark Days to avoid having students miss testing. Students are asked to bring a cold lunch on these days as we will not be heating up food so as to keep the campus as quiet as possible.
Our Grammar campus is looking for parent volunteers to help as monitors on those days. Please contact Mrs. Martinez if you are able to volunteer email@example.com.
