Principal's Message

Welcome Nixon Academy families, 

We are so thankful you are here, and excited for the wonderful year we have planned to help us all successfully achieve educational growth and development during this pandemic. 

I want to extend to you and your family a very warm welcome to Nixon Academy. The elementary school years are an exciting time for the children. You will see the children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. Each year will progressively provide important transitions and attainment of new skills and new knowledge that will enhance each of our children’s ability to apply this learning in many ways. Even with the pandemic we strive to make this year special for the children.

Our faculty at Nixon Academy is committed to providing a challenging and rigorous virtual curriculum that encourages each student’s progress at a developmentally appropriate rate and in a safe environment for all. Virtual learning requires us all to be a little more focused and a lot more independent.  Please help us work with your child to ensure this not so normal learning environment is being successfully implemented at home while we strive to become healthy as a nation again from the COVID 19 virus. 

As a parent and former elementary and middle school teacher, I value the social and emotional development of each of our children as they transition from grade to grade. I value learning. You will hear me say that our children have to be better, smarter, and more talented than we are when they are our age because the world around us is demanding this. Therefore, my aim is to make your child’s learning experience at Nixon Academy challenging, engaging, and exciting. With your help and support together, we will enhance your child’s learning and increase their desire to excel. 

As the principal of Nixon Academy, I believe that it is my responsibility to maintain and to continue to build a supportive and collaborative spirit at our school. 

Together as a school community, we will build on the traditions of the past and meet the challenges of the future in innovative and exciting ways. 

Please stay protected and stay safe.


Tom Tracy, Ed.D
