I wanted to take a minute to say THANK YOU to all of you who support Renovation Church financially. This past week, I took some time to personally send a message to every teacher in the Garretson School District to let them know that we are praying for them and to offer to help purchasing anything needed for their classrooms this year.
So far, we have been able to purchase clear face masks for ALL of the first graders and their teachers (per their request). This will allow these young kids to better see – and respond to – nonverbal communication. We have also been able to come alongside of a local family to purchase backpacks and school supplies for the new year.
We are a small church with limited finances but we want to do everything we can to make this school year successful for our community, teachers, and staff. If you work for the district and are in need of help purchasing extra supplies due to COVID-19, send us a message.
(On a side-note, I also read in the paper that the district is having a difficult time finding substitute teachers since many of them are over the age of 60. As a result, I spoke to Supt. Johnson and signed up to become a substitute teacher this year to help with this burden.)
