Welcome to Platte River Academy! We are a public school of choice in the Douglas County School District. You will see, as you read the many links and pages on this website, that this school was not started with a “business as usual” idea or model. Our school was started to rewrite the rulebook and to extend the boundaries of the “possible.” We have had a magnificent strategy and it has worked brilliantly for over 18 years. We are very committed to continuing the school’s success and progress.
PRA is a charter school that has earned many prestigious awards, including the John Irwin School of Excellence Award (every year since 2001) and the Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award. These are some incredible honors and they showcase all of the care, love, and hard work that has gone into this school.Click here for full article...

Springboard Education is the after school program at Platte River Academy and we hope you will consider enrolling your child in Springboard for the rest of the 2016-17 school year.
Amanda Hall, the Site Coordinator, graduated from UNC in 2001. Her experience with children includes training on the classical pedagogy at the Classical Academy in Fort Collins, working as a 3rd Grade Aide at Imagine Indigo Ranch in Colorado Springs and working as a Team Coach for the Ambassadors of Compassion program at CRMS.

Parents love that Springboard programs continuously deliver exciting, motivating and fun activities for students that extend their learning into the out-of-school-time environment.
All you need to do to enroll your child in Springboard is sign up through our Springboard Parent Portal at www.parent.springboardkids.com.

Holiday Gift Giving Is About To Get Easier!
PRA Parents: Let us help you with your Holiday gift giving for teachers and staff at PRA! Instead of buying individual gift cards or gifts, join all PRA families and give to this fund. The total combined money is given to each teacher/staff to pick out their own gift card(s). We did this last year for end of the year giving and it was very well received! …Here’s how it works:
We’ve gone TECHIE! All orders will be online for your convenience – to order Click here . https://platteriveracademy.revtrak.net/tek9.asp?pg=RW_TeacherDonation
Choose which child wants to contribute. You will need to complete one order per child.
Indicate the teacher/staff that you would like to give to and the dollar amount you would like to contribute ($1-???). This allows for you to give a little amount to a lot of people. It can add up when you have all the school contributing even $1.00! The full amount that you give will go to the teacher/staff.
Complete the family information and pay for the total with your credit card. The deadline for submitting your contribution and payment is Friday, November 11, 2016.
Now the fun part…after all the gift contributions have been received, each teacher/staff member will be notified of the amount received from all the students and given an Order Form to choose the exact cards in the money increments they want. They can choose exactly which stores, restaurants etc. that they would like to receive gift cards from. Each teacher/staff will receive the gift cards they selected and a note card with the names of the all the participating families — only names are given, not the amounts.
Participation is Optional and Contribution Amounts are Confidential! If you choose to participate, just click on the link in step one above. Thank you for your participation! PRA-PTO

Are you retired or inactive military? Do you have a ‘retired’ uniform hanging in your closet? We are still looking for a uniform from the United States Navy to display on the bulletin boards for our Veteran’s Day Celebration. If you have this uniform and are willing to ‘loan’ us for approximately 2-3 weeks, please contact Rochelle at email@example.com We have begun decorating our halls and would love anything you might like to loan us ASAP. Thank you.
Veteran’s Day is on November 11th and as many of you know, it is a HUGE celebration at PRA. Please send in photos of family and friends who have served in our military. Ideally, send them in an attachment to our Volunteer Coordinators Rochelle Monahan and Heidi Kruglet who are overseeing this event. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cannot convert them to a “soft” format, we will be happy to scan the picture and then return it to you. Also, if you would please fill out the form found in our e-folder entitled In Honor of a Veteran Who Served or is Serving Our Country, we will display these pictures on the walls of our main hallway and in a slide show presentation at the celebration. We look forward to a special event and thank you for your help!!!
Michael E. Munier, III, Principal and Veteran
