From the Principal’s Desk

Dr. Davina Jackson Hicks, MBA, PhD

Head of School

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Together, with the help of our Lord, we have experienced a successful first month of the school year! So far, our Teachers have been working to keep their learning objectives before you in both written format (weekly newsletters by subject) and by electronic correspondence (Class Dojo). We appreciate your feedback as we continue to align our processes in an effort to reach our goal of Straight-A achievement by focusing on Academic Achievement through Activity-Assessment Alignment, and Accountability. Just as a reminder, we need your help by reintegrating the goal of Academic Accomplishment through Timely Attendance, Good Attitudes, and Exposure to Accelerated Activities.


Sonshine Christian Academy is happy to announce that we have recently been granted a license to accept Title XX funding for our After School Program for all grades: Pre-Kindergarten through the 8th! This is a HUGE accomplishment, as our After School program is now in the pending status of earning a 5-Star Rating through the Ohio Department of Education! To see if you qualify for the public funding dollars made available through the Title XX Grant for school aged children for our After School Program, simply complete the Title XX application and submit the form to the Ohio Job and Family Services Department. If you qualify, you will receive a swipe-card to be used for payment, as opposed to the private-pay, out-of-pocket fee of $11.20 per day. I strongly encourage each of you to take advantage of this opportunity, as our After School Program includes the following components:

Time Activity First Floor Accommodations
2:45-2:55PM After School Program Attendance Taken School Multipurpose Room (Gym)
2:56-3:14PM Snack Distribution (2 snack-sized servings from 2 of the 5 food groups
