The Executive Director's Update

Update For Week of November 25, 2022


Dear MSA Community,

During the Thanksgiving season, when we traditionally take time to give thanks, I write to express my personal gratitude. Thank you to our parents and guardians for supporting Math and Science Academy and for sending us your beautiful children. Your children come with strong values, respect, tolerance, and appreciation. Thank you for your commitment to ensuring their success and our success.

Thank you to all that have contributed to our Give to the Max fund campaign. We raised over $36,000 which was 60% of our goal. If you would still like to contribute you can go to the Giving Tab at the top of our home page and click "Give to the Max".

Thank you all for your continued support and dedication to our wonderful school!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Randy Vetsch

Update For Week of November 11, 2022


Dear MSA Community,
November is National Native American Heritage Month. This is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. This is also a time to educate and raise awareness about Native people.

Next week is the big MSA Give to the Max drive. With the shortage of bus drivers and the challenges of securing buses to transport our students to extra-curricular activities, Math and Science Academy is raising funds this year to purchase two - 15 passenger vans. These vans would allow our activities the opportunity to transport our students to and from events/games/etc.

Thank you for your continued support!

Update For Week of October 21, 2022


Dear MSA Community,

It is that time of the year: Give to the Max.

With the shortage of bus drivers and the challenges of securing buses to transport our students to extra-curricular activities, Math and Science Academy is raising funds this year to purchase two - 15 passenger vans. These vans would allow our activities the opportunity to transport our students to and from events/games/etc. and not have to rely on parents to take off work, make other arrangements, or for our students to have to drive themselves. They would also allow any and all students the opportunity to participate in activities where transportation have been obstacles in the past. The vans could also be used during the school day to transport students/staff to educational events. MSA is hopeful to be able to offer this service to all our school community, and we hope that you will help us make this happen! Visit our website, www.mnmsa.org and click the "Giving" tab.

Thank you for your support!
Randy Vetsch

Update For Week of September 30, 2022


Dear MSA Community,

We have completed our first month of school. We kick off the month of October with our high school Homecoming Dance on October 1st. I have been so impressed with our students and staff. It is such an honor to be part of this incredible school. There is so much going on right now and it is very exciting to see:

* We received another glowing report from Niche.
* Best Public High School in Minnesota (#1 of 461)
* Best Public High School Teachers in Minnesota (#1 of 461)
* Best Middle School in Minnesota (#1 of 384)
*Our expansion is further along as we interviewed a construction management company last week and we are searching for the home for our new school.
*And we have a new potential opportunity as we discuss the possibility of merging with another charter school. (More information was sent in an email)

Warmest Regards,

Randy Vetsch

School is back in session! The first week of school is almost over, and the week has been extremely successful. It is great seeing students back in classrooms with their smiles and enthusiasm for learning.
