Treasury's Report - Calvary Lutheran Church and School continues to operate within the financial means of the organization and within the approved budget. Bank of the West should be providing an answer by the end of the week regarding the increase in the line of credit. Our goal is to have the credit available if and when we need to meet the needs of the organization.
The faithfulness of the congregation is amazing. We continue to meet our financial needs purely through the faithfulness of the congregation.
School Report – As of July 26, 2016 Calvary Lutheran School has 101 students enrolled (contracts signed enrollment fees paid) for the coming school year with an 80% retention of students from the prior year. (Yea!) Administration is expecting to receive the enrollment documents and fees for four additional students soon and four to six international students. We are experience a growing interest in our preschool with a projection of an additional 10 to 12 preschoolers; making a grand total of 26 to 28 students. Although Preschool has a license capacity for 49 students, Calvary has set a desired minimum enrollment of 25 and a cap at of 32 students. Reaching license capacity of 49 students for the preschool will require additional staffing. Enrollment targeting advertising is published on Facebook and the local newspaper circulation.
Three day orientation starts August 17. Pastor will be providing a Lutheran Doctrine 101 class for our non-Lutheran staff members and a refresher course for Lutheran staff members.
THANK YOU Dr. C! You are greatly appreciated. Many blessing to you and yours.
