Could we possibly add one more thing to our fall calendars?

October 22, 2018

Could we possibly add one more thing to our fall calendars?  YES!   We added a new recruiting and admissions season.  Everything we do in our marketing and outreach programs is focused on adding new and amazing young people and their families to our Rohan Woods Community.  We actually started this process last spring when we set our Open House dates and began our strategic outreach plan.

We are so thankful we have our volunteers to help with all the fall events! So far this year we participated in two Bayer Services Fairs which help incoming Bayer (Monsanto) employees who may be transitioning to St. Louis, we hosted a booth in the Creative Castle at the St. Louis Art Fair, we participated in a craft booth at the Saint Louis Botanical Garden Missouri Market, we hosted a game at the Warson Woods Fall Festival, and a few weeks ago, we had a table at the Mocha Moms educational event.

In two weeks, on Tuesday, November 6, we will host the Rohan Woods Open House where prospective families experience the school and see our students in action.  We use a mix of digital and print marketing to increase awareness of this event…and we need your help to complement these efforts.

Our current families are our best ambassadors, and we appreciate your willingness to share your love of our school with family, friends, neighbors and colleagues.  More than 50% of our prospective families tell us they heard about Rohan Woods through word-of-mouth from current or past families or from your online reviews.  This especially holds true with our Middle School program, where we have 20 students enrolled - which is quite remarkable since our program is only three years old!

I want to thank you, in advance, for helping to increase the public awareness of Rohan Woods School in the community.  Remember when you share your story, write a review, or invite someone to our Open House on November 6th from 9-11am, you add a personal connection to our print and digital marketing efforts - and that makes all the difference.  

THANK YOU!

A few short weeks ago—St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, New Brunswick, Canada, was home for our Middle School students.  We were on the field trip of a lifetime…spending the week at Huntsman Marine Centre working beside and learning from professional marine biologists.

As the opening day of school approached, with each day that ticked by, the pace became fast and furious.  Most likely, because we were in the midst of realizing our vision that unfolded during the summer.  People often make comments about how teachers have the summer off.  I want to share a littl
