The Classical School Blog, Week of August 4th


Parents, please take a moment to mark your calendars. The following are important dates that you do not want to miss:

A Message from Sarah Donovan, Director of Extended Educational Programs

We welcome the 2016-2017 school year with joy! We will soon be coming together in a brand new, restored E2 building. The blessing and beauty of this new space are beyond words and we cannot wait to share it with all of you!

“In God We Trust” Phil. 3:20: This verse encompasses our school year theme. Trust is a powerful word that we lay at the feet of our Lord. Thank you also for trusting us with your child’s heart, mind, and spirit. We are honored to walk alongside you on this journey.

A Message from Joe Fana, Principal of The Classical School

As summer comes to a close and we approach the new school year, we are reminded of the hectic schedule that will soon ensue. Whether it is shuttling children to and from school or after school extracurricular activities, your time with your family is precious. Quality family time is worth every second – take advantage of it! Look for those opportunities to talk with your children about their day at school, asking them about their ‘highs and lows’. Give them your undivided attention and ask the same of them. Never accept the one-word answers, but dig deeper. This will not only allow for you to know more about your child’s day but will give your child the opportunity to feel valued and heard. Remember that the time we have with our children is limited – make the best of those treasured moments by putting down the electronic devices and connecting with one another.


Parent Training and Meet the Teacher
