Momentum Academy In The Community  | Involvement Michigan Charter School

"GREAT, small school, where students do NOT fall through the cracks. My children attended Momentum last year and they love it. They both came from the local public school and had OVER 34 students with ONE teacher. Now they are in a classrooms with 14 and 16 students. My kids, the teachers, and the principal know exactly where my child is excelling and where they are struggling. Both of them made massive gains in reading AND math in just one year."
-Momentum Academy Parent

Thank you Mrs. SUDER and Mrs HICKS for all your hard work and dedication to your classrooms. I appreciate all that you do! I am very grateful you teach my son/daughter THANK YOU.
-Momentum Academy Parent

Since my daughter has been in Mrs. Zamm and Ms. Burnett’s class, she has been excited about learning even when she’s at home. She sings and dances on car rides because she’s eager to show me all she has learned. I’m noticing that instead of being bossy all the time she has learned to be a team player at home. She cleans her own bedroom and is very good at following directions. She was taught things that she wouldn’t have learned any other way by Mrs. Zamm. For me, I appreciated how much attention was given to each child at home visits and conferences. It was very apparent that the teachers really knew my daughter. If I could, I’d have Mrs. Zamm and Ms. Burnett keep Braylinn another year! I’ve received nothing but great feelings about this program. It’s been a great year for us.

Momentum Academy Parent Involvement and Commitment Agreement

By enrolling your child at Momentum Academy, you have chosen to participate in a unique educational experience that actively involves both you and your child. We ask that you demonstrate your commitment to Momentum Academy by…

  • Ensuring your child will attend school on a regular basis. He/she should attend school unless he/she is unable to function at school due to illness. We also ask that you schedule vacation in conjunction with school breaks and holidays.
  • Ensuring your child will be on time to school each day. Being on time is critical to minimizing interruptions to instruction and learning time for all children in a class. One child being 5 minutes late each day means a loss of two full school days in a school year for the entire class. Consider the loss over time when there are multiple tardies. Respect the need to have your child at school on time.
  • Provide your child with the necessary materials and time to complete assignments requiring library references, computer access and other research materials.
  • See that your child is dressed properly in adherence to the dress code policy.
  • Attend conferences and communicate with your child’s teachers to monitor progress and to address questions and concerns as they occur.
  • Read and return, on time, as requested, all informational materials sent home by the school and classroom teacher in order to ensure good communication.
  • Adhering to policies and procedures within this handbook and at the school including behavior in the parking lot and on school grounds.
  • Responding respectfully and appropriately to all staff, students, parents, and guests within the Momentum Academy community and at the school.

Complaint Procedure: If you have a disagreement with a teacher or the administration, you should make every attempt to settle the problem with that person, without involving others. Should it not be settled, the two should go to the next line of authority to arbitrate the difficulty (Teacher → Vice Principal → Principal → Superintendent → Board of Directors). It is the goal of Momentum Academy to respond to complaints and problems as soon as possible. Please sign and date the agreement below.
