Re-Enrollment Contracts Are Due Next Friday!
Dear ADAT Parents,
We are back to business as usual this week, while still feeling a tremendous sense of pride for each of our students after last week’s Intergenerational Day performances.
We wanted to remind you that your re-enrollment forms for 2018-2019 are due next week – Friday, March 2. Please note that March 2 is the date that most of our Day School families leave for our annual Shabbaton at Camp Ramah. So please, get started on your re-enrollment contracts soon, as there have been quite a few changes this year and we want to be able to have enough time to help you through the process.Each year, we arrange our enrollment calendar to give preference to our returning families for class placement and for financial assistance. In order for us to do this, you must complete your contract through Parent Locker and submit your deposit by this deadline. After this date, we immediately begin making our admission decisions, and money designated for current families requesting aid is automatically returned to the general pool and is then allocated for new family financial assistance awards. If we do not know your intent to continue at ADAT, your child’s place in class can be forfeited, and/or his/her financial aid award is no longer valid.
Our school has 110 students. Every. Single. Student. Matters. Please do not wait on your friends to make a decision first or think that your commitment to ADAT alone is not enough. It is. Every student that has committed to enrolling allows us to continue to build the best school possible for your children for next year, including hiring the most talented teachers in April – “prime time” for hiring.
There are many other reasons that the March 2 date is important, and we are happy to explain them further if you would like to contact us. In the meantime, please set aside a few minutes this weekend to complete your re-enrollment contract. That will give you the time to ask us any questions that may arise, and will allow us to continue to grow our school for the 2018-19 school year.
