This past week at CCA has been very eventful! Last Saturday was our final orientation session and we had a great turn out. Nearly all of the 36 families scheduled were in attendance, which is great. We had several less faculty and staff assisting with Saturday’s orientation, but it still went smoothly. And now it is definitely a relief to have both orientations behind us.
In addition to orientation, home visits are conducted for all new students. Ms. Anstaett, West’s School Director and Mr. McClellan, West’s Dean of Students, conduct the visits as another form of introduction to CCA. One of my roles in the fellowship is to schedule and reschedule (if necessary) home visits. Right now, we have a total of 90 new students and have completed 56 home visits (62%), have 9 scheduled and 25 to still be conducted. This leaves us in a great position for home visits, especially because there will be more than 75% completed by the start of school.
And yet again, back-to-school time is fast upon us, with less than 2 weeks before CCA’s first day on August 21st! CCA-West has seen great progress in these past few weeks in regards to both recruitment and readiness of the building. Considering that there are just 12 days until the start of the school year there is still a significant amount of work to be done. Luckily today the student desks were delivered. and now the classrooms are really starting to look like the real deal. It has been a great experience to see how far the building has come since we first moved in in early July. Are recruitment numbers are looking great and we will hopefully enroll a few more students before my time here ends. I can’t believe there is only one week left of the fellowship!
Until next week…
