‘Get Acquainted Day’ Opens Dade Christian School Year

Organizers of Dade Christian School’s annual “Get Acquainted Day,” which was recently held at the Northwest Miami-Dade Campus called the event a major success after providing students and parents familiarization with the school’s academic program, facilities and faculty for 2012-2013.

“Students met their new teachers and visited with classmates old and new, while family members toured our school to learn about the upcoming school year,” said Maritza Rosado, elementary school principal, noting this year’s program showcased a newly-renovated Crusader Café.

“Parents set up cafeteria accounts for students, and purchased uniforms for physical education classes,” said Matthew Annett, high school principal. “Our used uniform sales were a big hit, since parents can purchase school clothing at a significant discount.”

Another exciting discovery: the soon-to open David Rodriguez Fitness Center where students will enjoy exercising at the school campus.

Freshman and sophomore students learned of new technologies including use of Apple iPads for core classes such as science, math, history, English, and Bible courses, and school-wide Wi-Fi accessibility. “Get Acquainted Day is a great time for school administrators as well,” said Craig Konchak, Director of Development, welcoming alumni. “This is one of my favorite annual events since it marks the first time that students, parents and faculty are reunited after what seems like an endless summer.”

Dade Christian School combines a quality academic program with a commitment to character development and spiritual growth in the Christian tradition. Founded in 1961, the school is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (FACCS), and the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA).
