As Christ Lutheran School celebrates forty years of providing a high-quality Christian education to students in our area, we give thanks to God for all his blessings to CLS and most especially for you, our current families. We know that there are many educational options available to you, and we are humbled that you have entrusted your children to us. To celebrate our fortieth anniversary we have implemented several programs to thank you for your support over the years and position the school to continue training up children in the way they should go for the next forty years.
First of all, we are rolling back tuition for K-7 to $4,050 per year. This saves you money and simplifies payment as it is now easily divided into nine $450 payments. We know economic times are hard and value the great commitment and investment you make to send your children here. Though we firmly believe a CLS education is worth every penny and more, we want to do everything we can to make it affordable and easy for you. Booster fees are also being simplified and lowered from $1,000 to $900 which divides into $100 per month. No more confusing bills and complicated fractions!
Secondly, to say thank you for the great confidence you have placed in us and your dedication of sticking through principal changes, covid, combined classes, and other difficult times, we are offering a Retention Discount of $100 per previous year of continuous attendance starting in kindergarten. Though 2023-2024 is the first year we will offer this discount, we will count all the time you have spent with us since kindergarten. So, for example, a fifth grader next year who has been with us since kindergarten will receive $500 in credits divided out quarterly. Then the following year he will receive $600. A third grader next year who started at CLS in first grade will receive $200. We are committing to continuing this discount the entire time your student is at CLS. A kindergartener who stays with us through 8th grade will receive a total of $3,600 from this discount over all his or her time at CLS! We appreciate your dedication to our school. You deserve to be rewarded for all you have done for us, and this is our small way of saying thank you to you.
Thirdly, to draw in new students we are giving all new K-7 students a one-time 25% tuition discount. This includes current pre-K families who enroll in kindergarten next year. The purpose of this discount is to grow CLS and put us on a stronger footing for many years to come. Furthermore, many hands make light work. The more students and families attending CLS the more people we have working and praying for the prospering of this mission God has given to us. Beyond that, the more students we have the more friends your children will have to learn, grow, and pray with.
Finally, to further reward your commitment to CLS and incentivize recruiting your friends, we will give current K-6 students who return next year a credit in
May 2024 matching the total enrollment levels we achieve including Pre-K. The more students we get the higher your credit will be! In addition to encouraging you to tell your friends about CLS, we intend this as another way to say thank you for supporting us over the years. We could not do this without you!
Thank you again for your support of Christ Lutheran School over the years. We know that times have not always been easy, and we greatly appreciate your commitment to our mission. We hope these special celebratory fortieth anniversary programs will be a blessing to you even as you have been a great blessing to us. As we seek to grow, our first and foremost concern is you, our current students and their families. We give thanks to God for all of you and the many ways you have been a gift of God to us. We have taught children for forty years, and God willing we will continue to do it for far more than forty more yet to come. Our prayer is that we will one day have the opportunity to bless your grandchildren and greatgrandchildren with an outstanding education as we are doing for your children now.
We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 1:2-3
