Mansfield Christian School welcomed the public to a tandem event over the weekend to help raise funding for their independent studies program and, act as an open house to parents interested in enrolling their child.

In the lower level of the school, families were able to explore the school and discuss with teachers about the Christian-based education and the positive influence it provides.

"Today is the independent studies 'Flaming Hot Breakfast' and an open house here at Mansfield Christian School," eExplained Linda Hoeflich, the elementary principal. "It's a wonderful way for the community to come in, get to know our teachers, see the classrooms, and we also have availability for families to apply for the EdChoice scholarship program. The income-based program which is for incoming kindergarten through third-grade students if they qualify. So, we'd love to tell families how they might attend Mansfield Christian without cost."

And upstairs, the smells of syrup and coffee filled the air as families enjoyed a pancake breakfast with all the fixings.

"Well, today is our annual 'Flaming Hot Breakfast' and it's sponsored by independent studies," says Charlene Eder, Director of Independent Studies for Mansfield Christian School. "And independent studies is the program here at the school where families have a blend, a marriage between Mansfield Christian School and home schooling."

Some of the proceeds from the 'Flaming Hot Breakfast' will go towards a new hybrid program for independent studies, which is completely self-funded. Students will be able to attend Mansfield Christian School two days of the week and the remaining days they would be home-schooled. Information on enrollment for Mansfield Christian, the EdChoice Scholarship or their independent studies program can be obtained by stopping by their main office at 500 Logan Road in Mansfield, calling (419) 756-5651, or by visiting www.mcsflames.org.
