From the Headmaster
The new school year is just around the corner! When students return to school, they will meet several new faculty members. Mrs. Stacy Zeiger joins our faculty as English teacher for grades 9, 10, and 12. Dr. Vince Palmer, our new Academic Dean, is settling into his new office. Mrs. Rachel Velazquez will teach grade 3, and Ms. Allison Sweeney will teach PK3/4. Additionally, Mrs. Lorna Vandzura will return as morning extended care and lunch coordinator. We are very thankful to God for providing these well-trained, highly qualified individuals.
With input from faculty, staff, parents, and students, our plans include – but are not limited to – providing initiatives for attracting new students and then maintaining a high reenrollment rate, increasing financial aid, offering a greater variety of courses (including dual credit college courses), implementing a K-12 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program, upgrading technology, and making physical improvements to the school.
A few changes in the works or already approved for this year are a German language elective for upper elementary and middle school, a radio broadcasting elective for high school, a marriage and the family course for grades 11 and 12, a mock trial elective for high school, robotics and intramurals for elementary students, upgraded laptop computers for teachers, and a new, zero-turn John Deere mower.
Have a great remainder of the summer! I look forward to seeing you in September. Please pray for the faculty, staff, and me as we make our final preparations. Thank you in advance for your prayer support. Please don’t stop!
