May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, that your way may be known on earth, your saving power among all nations. Psalm 67:1-2
Dear Rejoice Family,
We have completed our first full week of Rejoicing@Home distance learning and I want to thank and commend you all for this accomplishment! I know it has not been easy for everyone to adjust to school at home in addition to all the other demands you are addressing. Thank you for your patience and support as we navigate and continue to develop this new method of educating and equipping your precious children.
Our teachers have held numerous virtual meetings and spent countless hours preparing quality lessons for the students in an effort to engage their hearts and minds. Our goal is not only to educate but also to continue to connect and build relationship with students to reinforce the understanding that they are important to us and valued image-bearers of the one true God. It is our privilege and high honor to partner with you in this endeavor.
Please let us know of any struggles you may be having in this process or of any way we can minister to your family. We will be checking in with our families and ask that you use our prayer page on Facebook or email your teacher directly with any needs you may have. We are diligently praying for each family and want to walk alongside you during this unprecedented time. As we face the challenging days ahead, may we trust in the assurance that: “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged”. Deut 31:8
We have extended our campus closure through April 30th to follow the guidelines of our civic leaders. We will continue to monitor the situation but are also preparing contingencies for end of the year events/procedures should we need to remain closed for the remainder of the semester. We will remain in contact you with further information.
In Christ’s Love,
Rejoice Christian School
