Much thought, prayer, and planning has been put into the idea of returning to the classroom. There have been hours of discussion on what it should look like. Creativity for solutions and restructuring of protocols have been implemented.
The results…an exuberant joy that flows throughout the classroom from being together again! Although smiles were not visible, and hugs were not physical, it did not dampen the enthusiasm of seeing one another again.
Although protocols have changed how school is done, I challenge that perhaps not so much. Students are still excited to be here. Friends are still giggling from being reunited. Teachers and students are still opening books. Halls are still filled with “Good Mornings.” And Christ is still present, and He is still seated on His throne. Yes, it is good to be back!
