When we enter a new season, we have no idea what the journey ahead will bring or where we will end up. As a part of the preschool ministry at Messiah, we know that each year will bring its share of successes and challenges. Observing a shy child gain the confidence to voice his needs to a classmate or teacher, watching two students negotiate taking turns with a toy, listening to shouts of triumph as a child masters riding a two-wheeler...what a joy it is to celebrate the many successes of our students. At the same time, how rewarding it is to work together with our preschool families, problem-solving the challenges which are sure to come our way. Before we know it, we will be at the school year's end looking back on the journey we traveled together. The key is that we traveled it together.
So, as September approaches, we at Messiah Preschool heartily embrace the start of the new school year, thankful to be once again granted the privilege to serve those whom God has seen fit to bring our way. And in so doing, "[To] partner with families in teaching each student God's love, in creating a foundation for a lifetime of learning, and in developing caring, confident children" (from Messiah Lutheran Preschool's Mission Statement).
