Dear Shannon Forest Christian School Community,
It is hard to believe that September is over and fall is here. I am certain cooler temperatures will be a welcome change for everyone!
I am happy to report that we’ve had a great start to the school year. When I speak about Christian education, one element I reference is excellence. Shannon Forest Christian School has an exceptional faculty and staff dedicated to the art of teaching and the discipleship of each student. They are well trained and extremely committed to who we are academically and spiritually. I am honored to be part of this wonderful community.
I am writing to you today in regard to the 2016-2017 Annual Fund. As you know, we are a tuition-driven institution that depends almost entirely on tuition and donations to fund the education we provide. Shannon Forest, like most schools of its kind, has an Annual Fund in order to raise additional income that supplements our tuition. It is an important part of what we do as a school. Without such a fund, tuition would have to be set at a higher rate to cover the entire cost of a private education. Thankfully, not only does the Annual Fund afford us the flexibility when it comes to setting annual tuition, it supports enrichment programs, enhances teacher salaries and provides additional funding for operational expenses.
I would like to ask that you join our Board of Trustees, Administration, Faculty and Staff who have already given to the Annual Fund this year. Annual Fund contributions may be made in person, by phone or online securely at shannonforest.com/giving. Also, be sure to save the date for the 2016 Crusader Call-a-Thon! All donations given to the Shannon Forest Annual Fund are tax-deductible.
Every gift is important to us and a vital part of who we are as a school. The decision to give rests with you and our Holy God. We rest in that process and trust in the fact that what we raise each year is exactly what God believes we need.
May God be glorified by Shannon Forest Christian School.
In His Service,
Craig L. Bouvier
Head of School
