Officially Enrolled for the School Year 2014-2015

Kids are officially enrolled today.  We went early but they were already so many  people out there so we had to fall in line.  Hubby and I  set aside a certain amount  for school tuition so that when it's time to  enroll, we can just pay it all upfront.  Here's the breakdown of our payments ($3,725):
  • $3,255 - tuition (fully paid)
  • $400 - books
  • $70 - Discount Cards

We brought all their school supplies and they put it away in their classrooms. My daughter's  teacher is  the teacher aide that they have  last year, she doesn't talk much but she's nice.     
 Here's my son with his classmate Haley.
 My son's  teacher is super nice and very organized.  You will really know what to do as parents because she  make sure to  put it in writing which I really love!
 MY daughter loved her when she was in second grade.  She said that she   might  be the hardest one that she's had but she learned so much.
 We brought home their textbooks.  We covered them , put their name tags on it, and got it ready for MOnday!
I have  some forms to  fill up such as the lunch charts and I need to make  check for it.  I also have to fill up the form for the volunteer work  during lunch preparations.
 In private school, we have to pay our tuition, books, food, every parents also does volunteer work during lunch time as  only one employees is hired in the cafeteria, the rest are all volunteers.
Every year, we pick one Mom to be the classroom Mom.  Classroom Moms plays a major role in assisting the teachers  during  special events and occasions.  

It is expensive to send your kids to private school but it's worth every penny because the teacher can really focus on each child since there not many students in one class.   We also love the fact that the kids can still learn about God in the classroom.

  1. I taught at a private school several years ago. The one I taught at was very low quality compared to the public schools in the area though. I even had to buy my own chalk.

    1. Yeah, teachers and parents have to buy everything they need. Over here, teachers are really good.

  9. Where the heck did summer go? We have never thought about doing private school, but our neighbors do and they seem to like it. It's not in our budget, but maybe one day!

  15. Good luck to your kids! I'm sure they'll do great in school! I love that they leave their school supplies in school. That lessens the kids' load when they travel to and from school each day.

How I wish it's cheaper so I don't need to do wo part time jobs. Oh well, we love the Christian school where they are now so it's all worth it.
