It is hard to believe that it is already time to start talking about next year; however, a look at the calendar shows us it’s May! Enrollment packets are going out and may have already arrived at your house. You will notice on the packet that it asks you to have the enrollment forms back by May 27. We greatly appreciate your help with this!
I am already busy showing new families around HCS and getting enrollment in on time assures your family a spot for next year. It also helps us in planning for the fall. If for any reason you need to speak with me prior to enrollment, please drop me a note or give me a call and we can connect. We continue to promise that we will partner with you to make a Christian education possible so please communicate with me if you have concerns or if you simply want to talk about financial or other issues.
As we continue to grow, additional staff is hired from time to time and so I want to update you with our teaching staff and placement, as of May 3. We continue to be blessed with teachers who are not only gifted from the academic perspective, but most importantly, are committed to nurturing your child’s faith.
We welcome two new teachers to our teaching family for next year: Whitney Holmes, who will be teaching in first grade. Whitney spent the first semester student teaching with Mrs. Toering and is soon to be taking over for Mrs. Wielard in first grade when she takes her maternity leave. Kristen Koetje will be joining the third grade team in the fall. Kristen has spent the last eight years teaching several different grades at Jenison Christian. Both Whitney and Kristen are finishing up their respective Special Education degrees as well. We welcome both to Hudsonville Christian School. A listing of the grade level teaching staff assignments for next fall is included at the end of this Home Communicator.
Standing Firm … Moving Forward
Dan Pott, Superintendent
