During these unprecedented times, I am here for you! I will be posting thoughts, updates and even answering your questions here on this blog. So be sure to check in frequently!
9/25 It is my hope and prayer that all of you are safe and well. I know that these have been challenging times in so many ways, not the least of which is providing an excellent education for your son or daughter either remotely, through a Hybrid model or in-person. I pray for strength and wisdom for each of you as we navigate the 2020-2021 school year and beyond.
Please know that I am here for you. If you would like to phone and discuss admission for your son or daughter for next year, or for some point in the future, please reach out to me. If you would like to tell me about your child and see how Westminster might be able to come alongside and provide an excellent education, I want to help.
We hosted a wonderful group for our Car tours this morning, so if you would like to see our campus and hear more about our programs, please register for a tour. Space is limited.
And finally, our Bible verse for the 2020-2021 school year is: "If God is for us, who can ever be against us?" Romans 8:31 May this verse bring you comfort.
I would love to share with you an email which I just received from a newly accepted parent of a 3 year old:
"I just wanted to reach out to let you know how THRILLED and BLESSED we are to have our daughter at Westminster. We have noticed such an incredible growth and development in her character and faith since the school year has started. I wanted to share a quick story that happened tonight at dinner that had my husband and I just speechless. Our daughter was a little cranky (not her favorite dinner!) and so we asked her to rethink her behavior at the table. She nodded and said, 'You're right. I didn't get my way but I'm still OK.' And she slid off her chair and said she needed to go talk to God about how she was feeling 'because my teacher said that God always cares about how I'm feeling and loves me no matter what."
Three-year old spiritual maturity for all of us!
"Resilience" is a word we often hear today, but it is exciting to see it actually in practice. In walking around Westminster's campus, I am seeing "resilience" every single day. Life is not easy during this time of pandemic, but I am witnessing children laughing and playing and having an amazing time learning with each other. Learning is going on in the classroom, while playing music or going to art class, while building robots, or speaking Spanish, while walking across the stepping stones of our new aquatic pond with fish and lily pads and learning that yes, God loves us very, very much.
8/13 Well, as you might have guessed, I am a huge fan of Christian education. I have seen the results in my three children who all have graduated from Westminster Christian School. But my granddaughter just began school in our PK 3 program last week. She asked to pray last night herself and her prayer was as relayed to me by my daughter, " Dear God, thank you for my day, thank you for my family, thank you for my baby brother the most of all. Also thank you for my dog. Thank you for being my friend. Amen" And that is why so many parents see the eternal value of Christian education.
8/7 I am so excited! I have walked around our beautiful campus and the classrooms are ready! Bulletin Boards are decorating hallways, rooms are scrubbed, and glistening, new family orientations are going on today...and the only thing missing are the HUGS! We are socially distanced, but I can see the smiles from ear to ear on the children, even behind the face coverings!
7/24 Westminster Christian School is planning to be back on campus on our original start date of August 10th. Faculty and staff are all preparing for a safe return for our precious students. We have missed them. If you would like to discuss admission, or have any other questions, please feel free to phone me in the office. I am here to help you!
