Greetings GRCMS Community!
I hope you had a wonderful long weekend. I am excited to get our students back into the routines of the week!
So far this school year we have been focusing on worshipping with one another. We have realized that it has been quite a while for some of our students since they have had the opportunity to regularly gather in worship. Last year due to COVID we found ourselves having virtual chapel within our homerooms. It was a blessing to have a more intimate time of worship with our homeroom classmates, but many of us did miss the experience of corporate worship in Village Square.
Many families also moved to a weekly routine of gathering with immediate family in the den in front of the tv to stream a worship experience into their homes. This year we will continue to take precautions to keep each other healthy but we have already had the opportunity to gather outdoors as a student body to worship our all-powerful God! Within our grade levels, we are spending some time talking about how to worship and what it means to worship.
Soon, we will be talking about encouraging one another. The encouragement that so many of you have sent me and our teachers already this year means the world! Thank you for taking the time to reach out to let us know you are praying for us!
As a community, I would like to mention another small but important way you could support your child’s homeroom teacher. That is through being a room parent for the school year. For those of you that don't know what a room parent does, here are a few examples of how to be supportive of our teachers: Bringing in a birthday treat on their special day, sending a card of thanks, lifting them up in prayer, organizing a Christmas class gift, dropping off a coffee, or maybe lunch.
There are so many different options. The idea behind a room parent is to show love and support during the school year. It is amazing how a few kind words or a hot coffee can brighten your day! Please go to the GRCMS 2021-2022 Room Parent sign-up to see if there is a teacher that you could commit to supporting this school year.
Blessings & health to you all!
