Welcome to a new school year! Teachers and staff are planning for a wonderful year of learning and growth founded on God's amazing, unfailing Word! Bulletin boards are up, floors are polished, and nametags are in place. Seems like we are nearly ready to open doors!
Much more, though, is needed. Please pray or simply read through this list of ways to start a good school year. Let's launch it well!
J Bless your children and pray for them daily and more often. Pray for those to whom you entrust their care and learning.
J Have items on hand such as extra supplies for homework, projects, and for celebrating student effort. The $5-7 is well worth it. A star chart can go a long way with an elementary student…
J Have a talk with the family as a group and even individually about your hopes and support for them over the year. Write down some of these things and refer to them. Avoid putting them down as rules. Instead, consider writing them as goals or even "tools" for help.
J Run through book bag packing, shoe finding, and clothing organizing. Practice how you'll leave in the mornings. Write up a schedule if needed. Include the things that must be done each day.
J Check out your Fast Direct subscription and start using it with teachers and others.
J Answer the question "how will I serve at school this year?" Let office staff know.
J Make prompt payments to avoid costly late fees. LSUS does not receive these fees. They stay with the company to offset costs of recovering payments. What a waste of money.
J Ask, ask, ask! Share, share, share! Thank, thank, thank! Give hugs all around!
We start this year with the theme verse!
And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.
May this year be especially wonderful for you and your family! May the additions and changes you encounter in life strengthen you and bless you. Here's to a great start!
