The Advent Admissions office is a busy, busy place these days- all kinds of good things are happening!

On October 2, we hosted an open house for prospective parents.  It was a huge success with lots of interest in Advent.  Just ask Mrs. Yancey- she is giving tours daily! We recognize choosing a school for you and your child can be very daunting, but we will do all we can to help you along the process. Applying at Advent has become simpler through our online application.  Don’t forget that the priority application deadline for Pre-K is November 16. Re-enrollment for current students will be in January 2017.

At the end of October, we had friends and former families of the Advent on campus to reconnect. Going down memory lane was so much fun. It was a wonderful opportunity to learn what our Advent graduates are doing now! We learned a new author is on the rise from the class of 1998. We look forward to her book being released soon! Please let us know what is happening in your world.

This past week our darling siblings came in to the school to be screened for admittance next year. Screening involves a series of fun exercises to see where each child is developmentally.  I am not sure who was more excited, the older siblings or the ones being screened.  However, I will say many of the young siblings were not ready to leave when the screening was finished.  One said to me, “That’s it? It’s over?”  Then they began to cry. Yes, they want to be here as well!

We encourage you to be “talking” Advent all the time. We encourage you to tell your friends.  We are always ready to show off the school we love. Our Pre-K parents joined us last week for coffee. We would love for your friends or co-workers to come and see Advent in action. To help facilitate this, we are having “Panther Perks” every Tuesday morning during the month of November, and then again every Tuesday in February. Please join us. Start here…go anywhere!
