Dear MCS Families,
As we enter the holiday seasons, I want to take this opportunity to personally thank you for supporting Maranatha Christian Schools. Every year God’s vision for our school comes to greater fruition because of your ongoing generosity. We are seeing not only a physical transformation on campus, but more importantly a spiritual, academic, athletic and artistic transformation in our students across all divisions as well.
In 2014, MCS conducted an analysis of regional salary comparisons that revealed a gap which placed MCS employees and teachers well below fair market compensation in the field of education within San Diego County. As part of our initial Strategic Plan in 2015, we implemented a 6-year plan to narrow the gap and since then, you have been making that happen!
Thanks to your financial gifts over the last four years, we have been able to fulfill our annual goals to give significant salary increases to ALL of our employees each and every year. We are making tremendous strides to compensate our faculty and staff on a respectable and competitive level, consistent with the surrounding school districts. With your support we will continue to retain and attract highly qualified Christian faculty and staff, and have a fully funded Salary Matrix by the year 2021.
I am thrilled to announce that, once again this year, 100% of the proceeds from our EAGLE FUND will go to MCS teacher and employee salary increases. The most important thing we see coming from this effort is an overwhelming partnership, fostering a genuine feeling of love and appreciation for our faculty and staff. As a parent of four MCS students and a former classroom teacher, I see how this beautiful partnership is having a positive impact on the future of MCS.
We want to provide an opportunity for you to give to our Annual Eagle Fund and to make an impact for our faculty and staff this holiday season. Our goal for the 2019-2020 school year is to raise $220,000. My prayer is that everyone would contribute to this noble goal–whatever your level of participation.
When this plan was launched in 2015, we knew it was a big objective, but it is clear now that when our community works together, collectively we can make a tremendous difference! The salary gap is indeed closing and the finish-line is in sight! When the funds are raised, we will be at 90% of our targeted salary mark for faculty and staff!
Thank you for prayerfully considering Maranatha Christian Schools in your end-of-the-year giving. May God bless you and your family this holiday season.
“My children are blessed every day by the teachers at MCS! Our teachers are genuinely dedicated to providing a solid educational and spiritual foundation for their students. They consistently go above and beyond their classroom duties to create a loving and joy-filled school community that truly feels like family. You can just feel the love our teachers have for their calling and for our children!” Sophia-Parent
