Learning at Home
From Dr. Bowar:
Based on the governor’s recommendation to help stop the spread of COVID-19, the Sioux Center Christian School building is closed through the end of the school year.
But school is still open! Learning is still taking place, and we are committed to providing the best possible Christian education for our students, even if it's in an unconventional way!
Our teachers have created take-home packets for students to continue their studies at home, and teachers are creatively keeping in touch with students and families through various technologies. Also, teachers are available each day for students to contact via text, phone, or email, having the ability to ask questions, just as if they were in the classroom. Our teachers are stepping up to the challenge and doing so well!
We continue Teaching for Transformation with this learning at home and also are encouraging students to reach out as Servant Workers by sending pictures and notes of encouragement to those who live in nursing homes or are shut in for health safety reasons. We want to be the hands and feet of Jesus – even with physical distancing :) – and act as witnesses of the love, comfort, joy, and peace we have in a God who has this all in His hands!
We ask for your prayers for Sioux Center Christian School and all the schools across the nation. Thank you for continuing to support Christ-centered education!
We can do this because we know God's got this!
