St. Ambrose-Let it Be
In times of trouble, you would hope the people in charge would work with those greatly affected to come up with solutions. Unfortunately, from what I'm hearing, this has not been the case at St. Ambrose.
From what I'm told, a parents group has asked for the names of the 27 Catholic School Board members and have been denied this information from Father Judge. They also requested an extension to August 1st, in an effort to recruit more students. Again, this request was denied. I have never met Father Judge, but I'm sure he is taking orders from a higher force. (No. Not HIM. Probably someone downtown.)
In any event, WGRZ did this story on an effort by parents to keep the school from closing...
SAVE OUR KINDERGARTEN
The Parents of Ambrose Catholic Academy are spearheading a grassroots effort to enroll students into our outstanding Kindergarten program.
The South Buffalo Catholic School Board is threatening to eliminate the
Ambrose Catholic Academy Kindergarten program for the 2012/2013 school year.
For the first time Ambrose has been given a deadline to
have 14 children registered at our campus by 7/1/2012.
We are very close to this number and we need your help,
here’s what we’re offering!!!
NO REGISTRATION FEE AND
½ OFF YOUR TUITION!!!
The Parents, Parish and Alumni have joined together and raised enough money to pay the non-refundable $200.00 registration fee for the next 10 families who enroll in the ACA Kindergarten Program from now until 7/1/2012. In addition, the Parish has graciously offered to give half off the tuition of any Ambrose family who refers a Kindergarten student to the school.
HERE’S WHERE IT GETS REALLY GOOD!!!
We the Parents and Parish would like to pay it forward and are offering our half off referral fee to the first 10 Kindergarten families who register their children at Ambrose Catholic Academy (starting now until 7/1/2012).
To enroll your child and learn more about Ambrose Catholic Academy please call the school directly at 716-824-6360 or email Christine O’Keeffe at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ambrose Catholic Looks to Boost Kindergarten Enrollment with Discounts
I can tell you St. Ambrose has a great parents group, excellent teachers, and the students come out of there with a great education. And also something severely lacking in today's world-manners. Please help spread the word to anyone with school age children looking for smaller classrooms and very good instruction.
When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be...
