1st grade is about to embark on a new adventure: Distance Learning! This will require learning new skills, patience, humility, teamwork, perseverance, and at times a good sense of humor. Our classroom motto is “Practice Makes Progress”, and I believe this situation will only reinforce what I tell my students on a daily basis. Learning how to navigate a mix of online and hands-on learning will take practice to become comfortable with (me too!). Families and teachers will work as a team to answer questions, help, listen to, and encourage the students. We must never forget the fact that God is in control, God is with us, God loves us, and in these trials, God will bring us closer to him. It is my prayer that we come together again soon. Until then, God be with you.
