Mrs. Graham's Update for the Week of 3/17/20
Dear Middle School Families,
Sometimes in curiosity, I like to look at what I call the Bible “verse of the day.” So today is 3/17 which means I’m looking at Genesis 3:17, Exodus 3:17, Leviticus 3:17 and so on. Sometimes it’s pretty random but, then again, so is life, right? I like to see how God can work through the randomness. The verse I wanted to share with you is Daniel 3:17.
If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it,
and he will deliver us.
Welcome to the furnace! For some of us, that might mean figuring out how to work with our precious kiddos who would normally be learning in a classroom right now. For others, it might mean juggling kids at home while work demands continue. For others, it might mean wondering when the next paycheck is coming. In all, things God hears us and promises to deliver us through his gift of salvation. It might not be easy, and it may seem to be never ending, but He is with us through it all. At POP, our daily prayers continue for each of our families.
All of our Middle School learning will be able to be accomplished at home on the student’s iPad and sent digitally. Students will not need textbooks at this time, however I understand that some may prefer them. I checked on this, and Mr. Hahn will allow MS families to access their student belongings in lockers from 9am-12pm tomorrow, March 18th. At this time, a parent must accompany a student to their locker. Unfortunately we cannot allow friend visits in the school at this time. If this time frame doesn’t work for you, please let me know and I will arrange a time to meet you at school.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, March 18th, will be our “pilot” of a Navy Day. Teachers have posted or will post for Navy classes on Edmodo by 9am. Lessons and work time will be 30-45 minutes long. My recommendation is for students to structure and divide the day with some school work in the morning, and some school work in the afternoon, but of course each family and home is different. For now we are exploring the flexibility of virtual learning. As the school situation changes, we may update our schedule and will communicate this to you.
Please reach out to me or any teachers with any concerns. We are here and ready to help!
