MCA Weekly Wrap-Up!

Primary & KinderPrep Family News - Feb. 9, 2018

Hello, families!

Can you believe it's already time to start thinking about next school year? We had a wonderful time visiting with families this week at the Winter Update about the new tuition schedule and plans for the upcoming school year. If you were unable to attend, you should be receiving your reenrollment paperwork in the mail soon. As we begin to look toward next year, please tell all your friends to consider Maranatha for their children! We ask that you share your stories of why you chose MCA, and invite them to visit us. We have some great upcoming opportunities for interested families to check us out at the Kindergarten Preview and the Admissions Open House on March 1st. Help us spread the word so we can serve even more wonderful families at Maranatha next year!
