Its 2019. What does that mean?
Mrs. Goodwin will enter into her 3rd year of teaching and finish her certification.
The A1 classroom will usher out its first graduating class of 8th graders.
The A1 program will have lived through its second year.
There are many things to expect in the New Year and already we should be thanking the Lord of his goodness and blessing.
The classroom will tighten its belt with its own resolutions - higher standards for writing and reading content - higher expectation for behavior and a culture of kindness - a greater encouragement to enter deeper into prayer through Litanies and Lectio Divina. There will be more encouragement to push forward, try new things, and explore creative abilities. There will be more opportunities to explore new things, experience new situations, and stretch awareness and abilities.
Instead of living for when school gets out, when your work is done, when its Friday, let's beg for the grace to live each moment intentionally and beautifully. Instead of looking at to do lists, homework packets, and unread emails, let's first look at the face in front of us. Let's make 2019 a year that glorifies Jesus Christ. I think that is a resolution to stand by.
