What a busy month it has been! July has been full of progress and excitement. In mid-July we had a work day at the school building. I want to thank those of you who took the time to come and help us prepare for the school year. Volunteers included Terry Carter, Fonda Carter, Leanna Coats, Rikki Farmer, Kendra Farmer, Robin Spicer, Michelle Glenn, David Gardner, Ken Sturdivant, Paul Wade, Rhonda Juett, Brian Egerton and some of our future students: Makenzie Murphy, Kaci Carter, Olivia Murphy, Alexa Carter, and Jackson Carter.
While we were able to make a lot of progress, we still have much work to do. There is more cleaning, repairs to the building, some wiring issues, and outdoor work still to be completed. Please let me know if you are able to assist with any these needs. We can arrange to let you in the building. Rhonda, Terry and I will be around the building at different times and would be happy to have extra help in completing these tasks.
We will also be having another workday on Saturday, August 13th starting at 9 a.m., so please stop by if you have any time that day to help out. Even if you only have 15-30 minutes, there are small tasks we can assign you. Every task completed gets us one step closer to opening the doors for school at the end of August. Of course we won't turn down anyone who can stay the whole day!
Watching the classrooms take shape and being able to actually see the space we will be using is so exciting. We still have room for more students to enroll. There are so many benefits to joining our school. Currently, I am working with an admissions officer at Freed Hardeman to enroll us in a program that will provide our graduates with an opportunity for a scholarship. Our class sizes will be small, students will receive individualized attention, and we are going to have monthly enrichment days for hands-on learning. I know we can be a benefit to your child’s academic and spiritual growth. Please consider entrusting us with your children. I promise you will not regret the decision.
Please continue to share our information with anyone you know with school-aged children. We will have a table with enrollment and donor information at the Cane Ridge Lectureship hosted by the North Lexington Church of Christ this week.
If you would like to help the school in a monetary way we will humbly and gratefully accept that as well. A lot of work goes into opening a school and many unforeseen expenses. We are in the process of attaining some corporate sponsors. If you work for a business that might have an interest in sponsoring the school please let us know. If you have already committed money elsewhere for this year, please consider us for your next year donations. I can assure each of you we will be good stewards of the money. We do not take the generosity of our donors lightly.
We have scheduled a School Warming for August 27, 2106 for anyone who would like to see the school. Our goal is to have the building set up for any donor, interested party, or curious minds to be able to come and tour the building and see what you have helped us create. Please make plans to attend this event. It will be held from 3:00-5:00 p.m. I hope to see you there!
