While we all are under the Covid19Cloud, we are still working to get our students back into the school year schedule as soon as possible.
Our original plan had been to have full-time classes beginning TOMORROW, Tuesday 11 August. BUT we will be continuing our tutoring schedule for this semester. One student at a time. No mingling. Working from distance of 6 feet as often as possible.
Today, we are doing last minute preparations – locating the missing math book, trying to figure out phonics for our partially hearing children, making horizontal spaces empty so they are easier to clean between tutoring sessions. We are trusting God that all things will come together for His glory even as I feel like I am stumbling around in the clutter of the classroom today!
In an effort to help our students learn at home (they LOVE youtube!) we have been preparing videos as part of review and homework. Praying that parents will join them in watching and will learn the signs too. Pray with us for this school year. We are praying for the other schools on the island and the restrictions on numbers.
Personally, I am thanking God that our numbers are limited and our ability to serve the young students is excellent. We have three adult deaf learners waiting for their turn in the tutoring schedule so pray with me for willing signing Spanish-English speaking volunteers to help out with those desiring to improve their skill sets.
