“Share the Spirit” of Annunciation School

This winter has been a “buzz” of activity as we have hosted an increased number of school tours and visits from prospective parents. The word is spreading about the great school we have at Annunciation! But we have more to do – let’s fill our seats and continue to help us by inviting your neighbors, family and friends who have potential students to visit our school. I meet with each family before their tour to hear what they are looking for in a school, share our vision for Annunciation, and answer any questions they have. I have truly enjoyed meeting these new families and sharing the great news and success stories about our school!

Continue to “share the spirit” and fill out the Share the Spirit form if you have a family you recommended that registers to get your tuition credit next fall. Thanks for helping us spread the good news!
