A Letter from Interim Head of School
Dear Friends & Families of BASIS San Antonio:
Welcome to the second half of the 2014-2015 school year! Change is the theme as we move forward, and I am excited to be your Interim Head of School.
Change can be very scary for students & a little unnerving for adults, but change can also be a good thing! We are changing & growing on a daily basis, welcoming new students and ensuring our current students are academically successful … and happy!
Are you new to BASIS San Antonio? Come join us for a tour, and check us out! We still have a few spots available in each grade and welcome the opportunity to show you what makes us uniquely extraordinary!
Do you have a student already enrolled in BASIS San Antonio? Watch one of our basketball games, or check out our soccer team … visit our science fair, or be our guest at our awards ceremonies. Come be an active member of the BASIS San Antonio community!
Change is a good thing. It shows growth and experience. Not sure? Look at your child. Hasn’t (s)he gotten taller, and smarter, since August? As amazing a child as (s)he was last fall, imagine the changes as the school year continues to unfold! The same thing is true at our school. BASIS San Antonio has gotten off to a great start – join me as we watch BASIS San Antonio change & grow! We’re happy to have you as a part of our family!
Leigh Ann Hinsch, M.Ed.
Interim Head of School
