For the past few years I have written to the parents of our students about a topic relevant to families in today’s world. My goal this year is to share my thoughts with you on a weekly basis. In this writing I want to tell you why I feel so blessed with this school year.
First, on Friday I saw so many returning families, and I was touched by the trust that you have placed in us as your school. We value the partnership and will do our best to work with you and your child.
Second, as I saw new families coming in, I was excited at the prospect of forming additional relationships. Thanks for coming through our doors and beginning this new partnership.
Third, this year we have four new teachers whom I believe bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to our faculty. I look forward to seeing them integrate into our current staff.
Fourth, I am completely indebted to all the returning teachers who continue to give of their time and energy in this ministry. It’s no secret salaries are lower at a Christian school than in public school, and these teachers have continued to serve here because of their love for the Lord, His families, and His children.
But the biggest reason I feel excited about this new year is the way in which the Lord blessed us to bring all these new teachers, returning teachers, returning families and new families together! I have truly seen His hand in it. I’m looking forward to see how He will bless this year.
Next week I plan to address the topic of social media.
Thanking God for our Epiphany Lutheran School family,
"Be still and know that I am God."
