Just a reminder that we are halfway through the school year which means at least half of your tuition should be paid. We work hard to pass a tight budget keeping tuition as low as we can. We need everyone’s help in making sure you are paying your tuition on time so we can pay our bills and our teachers’ salaries. Our general fund right now is struggling to stay ahead of bills. Please contact a member of finance if you are unable to have at least half of your tuition paid by January 3 so other arrangements can be made. This is VERY important to keep our school running smoothly.

Thank you Josh Hooyer and Bryan Bonnema
