06 Jul School Update #1
Dear Calvary Christian School Applicant,
I pray this email finds each and every one of you well.
As promised in our information meeting, I’m touching base with all applicants concerning the status of the elementary school.
I’m pleased to announce that we have completed our first hurdle: we have enough students to begin the kindergarten program, with the potential to open up 1st and 2nd grades (or a combo class). We announced this wonderful news at our preschool graduation on Friday.
So, without a doubt, Calvary Christian School will begin next year with a kindergarten class, with the potential to add 1st and 2nd grades.
This does not mean, however, that we will close the door—just yet—on upper grades (3-5). Beginning this week, we will commence with our community outreach, airing a commercial on our radio stations. We’ll give an update or final decision sometime in June.
We’d love for you to partner with us to get the word out, letting other potential families know about our school. As stated at the information meeting, we will open any elementary grade/s if we have the minimum of 12 students per grade level, even if we need to do a combination class.
If a family is interested, they can find all registration information on the preschool website: https://calvarychurchpreschool.com/
Here’s where we go:
- Beginning this week, we are interviewing potential principals.
- After the principal is hired, we’ll hire a registrar.
- With both the principal and registrar, we’ll commence hiring teachers.
- All curriculum, classroom set-up, and all preparatory aspects will begin ASAP.
- Our next major communication will be after we have hired our principal. You’ll receive and email update at that point.
As stated at our information meeting, there will be bumps along the way—due to our late start. We ask that you forgive us upfront for any delays, late calls, or other hinderances you may receive. It is not our intention to create chaos, but we hope to communicate clearly and effectively as we commence.
In the meantime, don’t hesitate to call or email if you have a questions. We’ll get to it ASAP.
Once again, we thank you for entrusting us with your precious gift/s—your children. We count it an honor to partner with you, nurturing and educating your child within a Christian context, teaching them to love God and others, mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially. As I stated, we want your child to be the best loved and taught in Albuquerque. Or to put it another way, we want school fun and a blast!
If you elect to respond to this email, please do so personally to me. Please do not “respond all” as to respect the privacy of each family. Much appreciated!
