Board Election Results are In - Thank You for Voting

We'd like to take this opportunity to let you know the results of the 2021 American Academy election. Nicole Smith won the Board of Directors seat and Aileen VanderWal won the School Advisory Committee seat. Congratulations Nicole and Aileen!

Nicole will bring great experience and perspective to the board having served on the SAC (including as chair) and the PTO (including as President), as well as being an active parent volunteer at both the Castle Pines and Lincoln Meadows campuses. If you have not had a chance, you can read Nicole's bio here.

Aileen will also bring wonderful insight and perspective to the SAC, having 5 children in the local school system, four of whom attend(ed) American Academy. Please read Aileen's bio here.

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Lisa Gillette, our outgoing board member, for having served our community so well for 6 years on the board. Lisa served the last 5 years as board treasurer, and she did that job with integrity and dedication. Lisa has conducted countless internal audits and was integral in our recent refinancing - American Academy will benefit from her efforts for years to come. Thank you for your service to our school and our kids, Lisa!

And thank you to all candidates for stepping up and running for these open seats. Life is very busy, so your willingness to add this to your plate is appreciated.

Thank you to everyone who took the opportunity to vote. If you have any questions please email the BEC.
