Risen Christ Lutheran School Welcomes Military Families
Risen Christ Lutheran School is dedicated to providing resources and support to military-connected students and their families. The Risen Christ point of contact, Principal Rebecca Reid, serves as the primary liaison for military-connected students seeking enrollment as well as for military-connected students currently enrolled at Risen Christ. Principal Reid has completed professional development on special considerations for military students and families under federal law. Risen Christ provides professional development for teachers and support staff detailing special considerations military families and students should receive.
Children in military families move more frequently than their civilian peers. In addition to their mobility, these children may be faced with multiple deployments of one or more parents or family members. At Risen Christ, we understand the importance of providing opportunities for military-connected school families, educators and administrators to understand and discuss the challenges our students face. Our goal is to partner with families to provide a high quality education and superior care for our students within a loving, Christ-centered environment.
