Proverbs 3:5-6 - Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And do not lean on your own understanding, In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.
This passage is a sure promise from a loving God, and one I cling to when the road ahead is not clear. This week took some twists and turns for us as a school and a nation. You may have experienced some bumps in the road as your family navigated close quarters and homeschooling online. You may have looked at your calendar like I did and suddenly found it filled with question marks. That is a very odd feeling. But, I can tell you with confidence that God is making our paths straight, and we can trust Him.
My prayer this week has been, "How can we make our educational path more manageable for our families and teachers?" The answer God gave me is, "Change your expectations, not your standards."
Our goal is to do everything with excellence and to the glory of God. We need God's wisdom to know what that looks like right now. Above all else, we want our community to stay healthy, in touch with the needs of their own families, and in tune to what God is doing in their lives through all of this.
Next, we want to provide academic excellence in a Christ-centered community. So, we are going to begin a new schedule for secondary students next week.
Thank you for your flexibility during this time and for your continued support of our staff. Everything we do is with the good of our community in mind. Stay healthy. You are loved and prayed for!
