Ms. Shouse is ALL IN!

Thank you for all you do for our school. As you have heard many times, the cost of tuition and fees simply does NOT cover the entire cost to educate our students. That is why we have an annual campaign called our ALL IN! campaign. We are asking you to help us raise the necessary resources to operate our school. The reason we have a $400,000 need is because we strive to keep tuition costs reasonable and affordable to ALL IN! our community.

As you think about how your family will participate in this year’s ALL IN! campaign, please think about all the great teachers we have across all our campuses. Here is an example from our Indiana Campus, Aleshia Shouse.

“Aleshia makes a positive impact on students daily. She is a teacher’s teacher. She is passionate about her job as band instructor but even more importantly comes alongside her students to grow them to walk in wisdom, stature and favor like Jesus. Her love for music, band, students, and Christ shine through all that she does both inside and outside of school.” 

 

 

You can give online or send in your pledge card when you are ready. Please help us meet the needs of our school. We are asking you to please be “ALL IN!

Thank you and God bless you and our school!
