Dear McNair DLA Community,
On behalf of the staff at McNair Discovery Learning Academy, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year.  We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission to help every student feel welcomed, connected and part of our McNair DLA Family.  At MDLA, we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating rigorous, engaging activities for all students. Our teachers utilize research-based best practices and analyze data to make informed instructional decisions. We believe that all students should be prepared to be productive citizens in a global society. 
We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our students can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, students need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our student’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. Your involvement, partnership, and support are greatly appreciated during the school year as we work to build and maintain our programs.  
 I am confident that this will be an outstanding school year. It is truly a privilege to be part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Please feel free to contact me at 678-875-3402 or at [email protected]
 Best regards,

Shaun Wells
Principal, McNair Discovery Learning Academy
