“It’s a wonderful opportunity for parents to talk face-to-face with teachers and principles in a setting convenient for both,” said Anita Widaman, event coordinator and publisher of the Metro Voice newspaper. Metro Voice is the third largest citywide newspaper in the region having served the faith community for 27 years. It has been named the top faith-based newspaper in North America several years.
The Open House caps a weekend in which Christian education is the focus in Kansas City with a large Christian Education and College Expo taking place on the previous Saturday-March 5 in South Kansas City. The Saturday Expo brings together schools from across the region plus homeschooling groups and 50 Christian colleges from 17 states.
“It’s the 18th year for the Expo and it continues to grow but this is our first Northland event,” Widaman said. “We have a lot of experience bringing all levels of education together for the Expo and this new Northland K-12 Open House narrows the focus further for parents north of the river. We are very excited to offer this opportunity for families in the Northland.”
