|Head of School's Message: Oct. 20|
If student enrollment is a hard metric of a school’s health, then attendance at Open House is a soft measurement. On Saturday close to 250 families visited the campus, the largest number in several years. The event was scheduled to start at 9 a.m. but families were lining up on Armada Drive by 8:30 a.m. It felt like an Apple Store before a new product launch.
Once inside the gates, members of our parent body who volunteered in large numbers greeted families. We are so grateful. On a beautiful fall morning with the Kidspace Pumpkin Festival as an alternative draw and AYSO soccer games going ahead as scheduled, Chandler parents, many of them new to the school this year, spent Saturday morning talking to prospective applicants. Chandler’s mission stresses “commitment to community in students.” When our parent body models this commitment it rubs off on the kids. Thank you for walking the community service walk by spending time on a Saturday morning as an ambassador for Chandler. You made a big difference. You inspire us!
