On Tuesday, April 4th 2017, School in the Square held its second annual admissions lottery to determine who would be chosen for our second 6th grade class. Immediately after the event, the S2 staff all gathered together and enthusiastically called the families of the chosen students to share the good news. It was wonderful to hear the relief and excitement families expressed at hearing of their child’s acceptance. We promptly sent packets to their homes with the information they needed to complete their applications and officially enroll.

Two weeks later, on April 18th, we invited new families to attend a morning or evening Admissions Celebration Event as a way to welcome them to the school and provide any assistance with the application packets. Mr. Meyers, the executive director, shared a few words to express his appreciation to our first class of 6th graders in a new school, and made a promise to the incoming class that they will be engaged, educated and empowered throughout their three years with us. The school’s new principal, Mrs. Amon, also had the opportunity to address the new families and she gave a warm and enthusiastic welcome. Finally, a parent of a current 6th grader spoke to share their gratitude for all that the school has done for their child and family over the past 8 months - it was a touching moment and illustrated exactly the kind of impact we want to have on every student who passes through our halls.

The finale came with awesome performances from our hip hop dance and step teams, ending both events on a note of high energy and positivity! Attending families received S2 t-shirts and had the opportunity to play games in the gym to win more S2 swag, which was a lot of fun. Mr. Met even came by in the morning to join in the festivities!

During the receptions Mr. Meyers and Mrs. Amon really enjoyed meeting many of next year’s students, starting the vital process of getting to know each child and family individually in order to serve them best in the coming years. The S2 teachers and staff are so excited to meet and work with our second class of sixth graders here at School in the Square!
