Mara's Memos

Now is the time to decide about next school year.  Registration for our A Beka classes (Threes and Fours) is underway.  As always, registration is on a first come, first serve basis, but we have opened registration to the public.  In order to secure your child's slot for next school year, come to the office and pay your NONREFUNDABLE book fee.  The current book fees are $40 for the Threes and $55 for the Fours.  (Prices might go up depending on if A Beka raises their prices this year.)  If you have any questions for any of our teachers or would like to sit in on one of their classes, please let the office know and we will be glad to make the arrangements for you.  We will be opening registration to the public soon.

Johnny Appleseed Day honors one of America's great legends. Johnny Appleseed was a real person. John Chapman was among the American settlers who were captivated by the movement west across the continent. As Johnny Appleseed travelled west, he planted apple trees along the way, and sold trees to settlers. With every apple tree that was planted, the legend grew.
