Hello Dear RMS Parents,

When we took over our lovely new campus and moved our little school last fall, it was the beginning of an exciting and challenging new phase in our development. The site offered the potential for everything we could ever want to do, but presented us with the challenge of growing into it, and growing in a way that was organic and would enhance the quality of all our programs, not diminish it. Accordingly, we mapped a 5 year growth strategy that covered each program, how they related to each other, a finance and fundraising plan that would allow us to take the time to “grow smart,” and site development plans to accompany the growth envisioned.

Although I am a firm believer that plans are mainly for God’s amusement, we’re one year into that plan and I’m happy to report that we’ve made steady progress on all fronts, thanks be to God.

One of the most exciting milestones we’ve hit is that we are full in our Elementary program!  Don’t worry, however. If your child is enrolled in Primary, they have a guaranteed spot in Elementary. In fact, we have plans in place to expand our elementary further to make sure that every child matriculating from Primary will be guaranteed a spot in Elementary.

But here’s where we need your help.  From here on out, our expansion plan for Elementary and Erdkinder will be organic growth, meaning children moving up from Primary and Elementary respectively. We currently still have spots in our Primary and Toddler environments, especially for 2 and 3 yr olds. We’ve also designed a special pricing plan to help families begin the Montessori journey at the optimal time for their children. What we need now are REFERALS.

To that end, we’re launching a “Referral Bonanza” and this is how it will work:

  1. Any referred family that decides to apply after their observation and visit will have their application fee waived.
  2. If a referred family is admitted and decides to enroll, the referring family will get a $500 tuition discount.
    • If you feel you don’t need that discount but your referred friend does, you can gift it to them!

We’re ramping up our marketing effort, and anticipate getting close to full enrollment by next Fall, God willing. So now is the time to get your friends to come and see what Renaissance is all about. And don’t forget we have rolling admissions in Toddler, and the possibility of January starts for Primary. So don’t wait to encourage your friends to “come and see”.

Forward this email to your friend using the button below. Tell them to schedule their visit now while space is still available.

Thank you, and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask me!

Sean

PS – We are only enrolling 2 and 3 yr olds, but we recognize, of course, that children come from families. So if a family you know has Elementary aged children in addition to Toddler and Primary aged children, please know that we will consider their elementary aged child for placement in our elementary, should they decide to apply as a family.
