Principal Derrick Graves Office Hours

  • Our principal hosts weekly office hours to provide time for families to ask questions, share successes or discuss any concerns.  These sessions are the ideal time for parents to talk about the online learning experience, share suggestions and get clarity on school events. In addition to the virtual office hours listed below, parents can always call the school and contact Turning Point Academy staff by email or through the Microsoft Teams messaging system.

Morning Message

  • We start every school day with a virtual Morning Message meeting for students, parents, and staff.  At that time, students lead the Turning Point Academy, administrators share announcements, celebrate birthdays, words of encouragement, and start the day with a Calm Classroom technique. We also use this time to recognize students and parents for their support and efforts with attendance, virtual learning, and other school events.  Students are expected to join the meeting at 9:10 am Monday-Friday and parents are encouraged to attend as often as possible. 

    The link to the Morning Message is posted daily in the Turning Point Staff and Students Teams under the Morning Message channel.
