Over the course of the past 3 months, we have enrolled families ready to make a positive change for their child's education. We've also met with many families inquiring about our school and alternative education for their child. We've received notes and message from past friends, families, and colleagues offering us support, a helping hand, and wonderfully kind words. We've networked with community members, businesses, educators, and education specialists. It has been humbling, rewarding, and motivating to have so much positive support.
Not only is it empowering to feel the support of so many people as we embark on a new career and life changing dream of our own, but it is heartwarming to have so many families who we've worked with over the years stand by us, confirming that our teaching made a difference for their child. To hear this, years later, as an educator, is honestly, so 'full of warm fuzzies', it's beyond words. We can't express enough how grateful we are to be doing what we are doing.
Well, this weekend we marked the beginning of something just as amazing. We had our first meeting as a school - as a family. All enrolled parents were invited to join us to get to know one another and start a Via Vita tradition - working together to build a school that fits.
We were beyond thrilled to see each family walk through the doors, coming together to talk, learn, share, and of course, enjoy some tasty treats! It was a wonderful experience - working together. The energy in the room was contagious - we were actually making this dream come to life, together! We discussed our thoughts on Via Vita education, growth of the school, marketing and recruitment ideas, community events and support, and details for the summer and school year.
As we approach the end of our 3rd month of enrolment, and the successful first meeting with our school families, we just want to say thank you. To everyone who has shown us support, for working with us, sharing your ideas, helping to build this new school, and truly making positive change in your community, we thank you.
