Dear Team Timothy,
I'm proud of our school. I walked past every classroom today and teachers were teaching and students were learning -- right away! I witnessed several classroom prayers, too. Of course, when we set the bar so high, we will always discover some areas for fine tuning. Today provided some valuable troubleshooting for us in this new frontier. Your support and patience is one of the many things that makes Timothy uniquely strong. In summary, I’m sticking with my conviction all along: no one does it better than Timothy.
I've witnessed some extraordinary moments in my career...but today, Wednesday, August 19th, 2020, was the greatest professional honor of my life -- to walk into school with your children and our teachers who Go Beyond anything we could have ever imagined this time last year. Our teachers are not only committed to Biblically-based education, but personalized and targeted instruction for every student whether they are home learning or on-campus. Even though we were all wearing masks, I’m pretty sure I saw a lot of grins over the top of each mask. There was high energy and excitement on campus today.
Considering it was our first day, we had a good drop off today, too. As students learn which door they are supposed to enter it will get smoother. Our Health & Wellness Committee would also like all parents to stay in their car. It’s just one more way to create a healthy environment and help us continue with on-campus learning. Remember, this is all temporary.
We had nearly every family fill out their Health Check-In this morning. Thank you! Please fill it out again tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day...you get the point. If your child is sick, this is not the year to ask them to tough it out. Just stay home. A rigorous relationship with our health plan will provide the best and most desired outcomes for all.
Tomorrow is a full day of school. You can find the updated school hours here.
We've spent thousands of hours, really since last March, working on a multitude of plans. For reasons out of our control, they've changed scores of times, and yet teachers and staff pressed forward with the next plan. Why? Because of a radical commitment to a mission. FOR THE GLORY OF GOD, TIMOTHY CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS EXISTS TO UPHOLD BIBLICAL TRUTH, IGNITE ACADEMIC GROWTH, AND INSPIRE COURAGEOUS LEADERSHIP ONE STUDENT AT A TIME.
PRESS ON, TIMOTHY.
