"The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities." Psalm 103: 8-10
National School Choice Week
School choice is about giving families the opportunity to select the best educational environment for their individual children. As we at Green Oaks School know well, education is not ‘one size fits all’. Every child is different and has unique talents, challenges and learning styles. While we certainly like our option best, we know it is not the right program for everyone.
Next week (January 24-30) we are participating in National School Choice Week. All across America there will be celebrations of effective education options.
At Green Oaks School and GOAL, we will host a “Lunch & Learn” on Monday for anyone who could benefit from having additional information about our programs (see “Lunch & Learn” in the next section). In addition, we will celebrate our school, staff and students in a variety of ways throughout the week.
We want to raise awareness about Green Oaks School, as well as the benefits of empowering parents with the opportunity to choose the best educational environments for their children. Since choosing a school for your child is an intensely personal experience, we want to hear from you. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us why you choose Green Oaks School and GOAL for your student.
