Prayer

Prayer for a New School Year

Lord, please bless all our teachers, friends and relatives as they make their way back to their classrooms for another year.

Help them to feel excitement and joy in the promise of a new start.

Give them everything they need to start their classes. Give them all they need all year.

Give them imagination and creativity to make wonders out of what they do have.

Help them stretch their budgets and their supplies. Give them wisdom all year.

Help them quickly spot the little souls who are going to need something extra from them this year.

Help them have just the right words of encouragement for each student.

Give them loads of love.

Help the love in their hearts just overflow so they always have plenty to spare.

We can’t conjure it up Lord, but you give in abundance... please supply all the love teachers need.

Please supply them energy too, Lord.

Please let them sleep well at night so they are rested and refreshed each morning.

Don’t let them take their problems and worries to bed with them at night.

Give them patience with students, with parents, and with their administration.

Again, Lord, it’s you who supplies in abundance. Please keep the students and teachers safe this year. Keep them safe from accidents or evil intent.

Let the students be excited about this wonderful world and all there is to learn about it.

Help them to be interested in each other, for there’s a wealth to learn about and from each other, and this is true for teachers and parents as well.

Give the parents willing hearts, both to help in the classroom if they can, and certainly to be involved in their children’s homework and in their stories as the year goes on.

Let this be a truly wonderful year for everyone involved in education.

Let everyone feel, at the end of the year, that they learned all they could and gave the best they had.

Amen

Classroom Changes

Throughout the summer we did a lot of cleaning and moving around of classrooms.

The first floor will hold our 3K - 2nd Grade classrooms.

The second floor will have 3rd-8th Grade classrooms.

The library will again be used this year.

COVID Protocols

More information will be sent home with paperwork for a signature, but here is a summary of protocols.


MASKS: Masks will be optional. Please still keep masks available and have one at school in the event we may need them. (For example: working too close together, symptoms in class)

VIRTUAL PLANS: Virtual will not be used, but is in our back pocket if a situation arises that would require it. ( For example, students being quarantine.)

COHORTS: We will keep groups of students together. We will Cohort Grades. 3K-5K, 1-4, 5-8 for recesses and lunch. Students in grades 1 and 2, 3 and 4, 5 and 6, and 7 and 8 will work together for different purposes.

POSITIVE CASE: If a student tests positive we will watch the cohort for spread and symptoms. Families should keep kids home if they develop symptoms. If we discover spread is taking place, we will quarantine the grade, which could lead to virtual.

Last year our parents did an amazing job keeping kids home when they were sick, that is what gave us so much success. We will post guidelines for that again.

We are planning to do events, field trips, etc. again this year, keeping in mind our cohorts.
