The meaning of FAMILY

Written By: Chad Griffin
Family can be understood by several definitions. At Calvary, family is used very often in context to describe the culture of this place. Often at open houses I will talk about family to those touring and looking at our school. I will begin stating that Calvary is very similar to your family--no one is perfect and no school is perfect--but what's important is the community that makes up that family and the impact it has on you.
Because at the end if the day nothing is more important than family. This past week was a great reminder of what an impact the Calvary family makes. My wife lost her father this past week in Florida. With no immediate family close by, it was our Calvary family that was there. The support that we received from calls, text, cards, meals, help with our kids getting them back and forth while I was still coaching was exactly what you expect from family.  Whatever we needed, no questions asked, it just got done.

We are so grateful for this place and the teachers, coaches, and families that make this place different. In 2002 we moved to Savannah without a family, but we found a home at Calvary Day School, and we found family.

Chad Griffin is the Athletic Director for Calvary Day School. He is thankful for the ability to serve our student-athletes, coaches, and support staff through athletic endeavors. Griffin sincerely believes the values of “Building Champions through Christ,” and uses this motto to challenge our student-athletes to be the best young men and women they can be. Griffin prays that student-athletes will not only find individual success, but also spiritual success through true salvation that matters — a relationship with Jesus Christ.
