Our annual Open House was one of the most successful Open Houses we have had in the past few years. Prospective families began arriving at our school at 12:45, fifteen minutes before we were scheduled to start! The constant flow of newcomers to our school did not relent until 3:45. Many of the families remarked about finding out about us via our recent marketing efforts with Cincinnati Family Magazine (Special thanks to Anneliese Clear for heading up this effort!) and some direct mail pieces we recently sent out while others heard from us by word of mouth. Regardless of how they heard of us or the age of their children, they had one thing in common. They were each searching for a learning environment that would provide an educational experience for their child that would work with how their child learns best. They were looking for a school and for teachers that would inspire in their child the desire to learn and to discover, the development of their child's creative thought processes, and the self-discipline to approach life's challenges and opportunities. Our visitors were able to meet many current CMA parents and learn from them why they have chosen CMA for their children. Our CMA students modeled their wonderful work habits and their joyful scholarship. And of course, our amazing faculty and staff shared their knowledge and warmly opened their doors to the visiting children and families. Thanks to all those who helped make this Open House one to remember!
