Welcome Back + Thank You + Around the Corner

WELCOME BACK!
The first day back from a break can be a struggle. Please try and support your student by making sure they have a good night’s sleep, a healthy breakfast, and arrive to school on time. We hope everyone had a safe and an enjoyable Spring Break.

 

THANK YOU!
logoThere are so many worthwhile organizations in the in this great city, and it’s easy to get lost in the nonprofit shuffle, but we are so grateful to everyone who supported Odyssey School during our first ever Amplify Austin Campaign. We exceeded our original goal thanks to our community’s generous support!

Odyssey’s mission is simple: we are committed to the development of academic excellence and self-acceptance for students who struggle in traditional educational settings. We believe that all children can be successful in their intellectual, creative, and social development. Our goal is to help every student discover their individual potential for greatness.

All of our students have struggled in one way or another in a traditional academic environment, and a lot of students with learning differences have been sadly labeled as “lazy,” “unmotivated,” The staff and teachers at Odyssey are able to reassure students, build confidence, and create arenas to inspire and ensure academic and social successes.

Again, thank you to all of the amazing families and friends of Odyssey. We are so grateful.

Amplify 2016 has ended, but you can always spread the word about Odyssey and make a donation HERE.
