Let me begin by taking a moment to recognize what a great job EVERYONE in our school family has done in their various roles throughout the sudden pivot we’ve all experienced in the past two weeks.
, as a parent and administrator, I’ve been inspired by your willingness to learn (without a single complaint) entirely new methods of delivery, assessment, communications, etc.
, you have cleaned like never before, and
, you’ve been rock stars, scrambling to do the ordinary (report cards, etc.) that isn’t so simple any more while simultaneously figuring out brand new tasks (like remote admission processes!). Thank you all!
, your consistent messages of grace and patience mean more than you’ll ever know. It has been wonderful to see the Lord use your emails, posts, and text messages to encourage our staff; it’s amazing how the right word has come at just the right time again and again. Seeing and hearing those messages also helps your kids know that they’re in good hands and they’ll be okay.
, I am grateful for you too! Many of us have received messages from you, expressing love and support while thanking us for the work we’re doing. While some seniors might mope about what they could “lose” in these special weeks to come, ours are sending emails to administrators letting us know they’re praying for us and offering to help teachers set up online learning structures. You’re amazing, and I miss you all.
The learning curve for us all will continue to be steep, and while none of us will be perfect, we will make it. When a concern arises, we will assume the best of one another and lead with gentle questions
