Blessed By Our “Extended Family” At Calvary Day School

If you’ve been around Calvary long enough, I’m sure the phrase “it is truly a family” has been brought to your attention.  This statement is frequently stated at parent meetings, open house events, sporting events, and other Calvary functions.  As I bring my own children to school every day, I am once again reminded of this idea of “family” at Calvary.  I am very fortunate and blessed to be able to work at the same place where my kids go to school each and every day.  To be able to walk in the cafeteria at lunch and see my kids daily far outweighs the prospect of working in the business world trying to chase the dollar.  Although there is nothing wrong with trying to make the best living for your family, I am just so appreciative of the time I get to spend seeing my children.  I think it speaks volumes that so many of our staff have their own children either at Calvary Day School or the Early Learning Center. They know that not only does it give them a chance to see their kids during the day, but they also know that their kids are being well cared for due to the wonderful Calvary “extended family.” Family is a concept that many of us take for granted. I know that not only as an employee here, but as a  parent as well, I am very blessed to be where I am and thank God daily for His blessings at Calvary.
