Covenant Christian School is a parent-owned and operated school.
We rely on the help of our parents to serve on our school board, volunteer in our classrooms, lend their professional expertise, fundraise for the school’s needs… and spread the word…
This spring, we need our parents to help us spread the word about Covenant Christian School to ensure we fill our Pre-School & Kindergarten classes and add students to other class grades for the 2018-19 School Year. While Covenant values our smaller class sizes and will always seek to maintain smaller class sizes, it is critical to our ongoing financial health that our classrooms are filled to our desired student levels. Covenant parents and families are the school’s best advocates in our community, so we have designed our OPEN Enrollment Campaign around our School Families’ advocacy for Covenant Christian School. We ask that you help Covenant via the methods outlined below:
#1. our $500 referral program
#2. spreading the word to your Churches and MOPS groups
The School Board thanks you for advocating for Covenant Christian School!
#1. Referral Program
Earn a $500 Account Credit for Every New Family you bring to Covenant
For every new student family that you introduce to Covenant Christian School, who successfully enrolls for the 2018-19 School Year, you will receive a $500 referral credit on your school account. We ask that you invite a prospective school family to attend one of our five Spring Enrollment Events in March:
• Watch Us on Wednesdays (7, 14, 21, 28 March)
• Open House (21 March)
Event details + an RSVP form can be found online at:
Please share the Spring Enrollment Events webpage with the families you are referring so they can RSVP.
When the family you have referred fills out their enrollment forms, there is a “Referral Information” section, where they can let us know your family referred them to the school. We will also capture your referral via the RSVP form.
Referral Program Details (the fine print):
- The $500 credit will be applied to your school account as follows: $250 at the end of September 2018, $250 at the end of January 2019.
- The $500 credit can be used towards the cost of Tuition only.
- There is no limit to how many referral credits you can earn. For example, if you introduce five new student families to Covenant you can earn 5 x $500 credits = $2500
- If more than one child in a new student family enrolls, the referral credit will still be $500 for the whole family.
#2. Help Covenant Spread the Word: We are OPEN…
OPEN for New Enrollments in 2018-19
OPEN in March for Watch Us on Wednesdays (7, 14, 21, 28 March)
OPEN for an Open House Event on 21 March
The School needs your help to spread the word in your Church and MOPS Groups (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) that Covenant is OPEN for New Enrollments in 2018-19, and we are OPEN in March with events designed to help families determine if Covenant Christian School is the right place to educate their children.
The School will provide you the content (text blurbs) or printed fliers to use to promote Covenant to your Church and MOPS group. We ask that you contact the appropriate person within your organization to distribute those materials via the appropriate channels.
Example Content to provide to your Church or MOPS Group
A Text Blurb with Weblink could be:
- printed in your Church’s Bulletin that is handed out on Sunday Morning
- included in your Church’s or MOP’s Email Newsletter
- sent-out via a Facebook Post for your Church or MOPS group’s Members
1. copy & paste the blurb
2. modify the blurb if necessary
3. email the blurb to the Contact Person @ your Church or MOPS group.
4. or Post the Blurb (with link) to your Groups’ Facebook page
SHORT Text Blurb
MEDIUM Text Blurb
LONG Text Blurb
Be Creative! How else can you spread the word that Covenant is OPEN?
What relevant Facebook or Social Media Groups are you apart of? Do you know any bloggers who write about raising Christian kids? Please share… Are there any other opportunities Covenant should be aware of to get your OPEN information out into the community? Email Us.
Be sensitive! Some Groups offer their own Preschools...
If the Group you are contacting offers a Preschool program, to avoid being in direct competition with that Group, simply change the text blurbs above:
from: “Preschool–8th Grade” to: “Kindergarten-8th Grade”
A Flier could be inserted into your Church’s Bulletin that is handed out on Sunday Morning
OR to members of the MOPS group
If a printed flier is your groups’ preferred option, and you have confirmation from the authoritative person in your group, fill-out the form below and we will provide you with the requested quantity of fliers to pass onto your group to distribute. You will be notified when the fliers are ready to be picked-up from the School’s Office.
Request Fliers for your Group to Distribute
Be sensitive! Some Groups offer their own Preschools...
If the Group you are contacting offers a Preschool program, to avoid being in direct competition with that Group, we will create two different versions of the Flier. For Groups that offer Preschool, we will reference “Kindergarten-8th Grade” (rather than “Preschool–8th Grade“). There is an option to request the appropriate Flier in the Form.
