As children grow they are being educated in a number of ways--both formal and informal. Sometimes they learn through instruction, and other times by example; sometimes they can be told and they get it, and other times they must be shown. Whatever the method though, they are learning.
Our children are learning who they are, who others are, how things work, what to value, and more. Things learned now can stay with a child for years, if not a lifetime. This is one of the reasons that I am thankful for the staff at Holy Trinity.
The Holy Trinity staff gives me confidence that our students are being well-instructed formally in the classroom, as well as informally throughout the day. Our staff brings an attitude and energy to what they do that communicates the love of Jesus in so many ways: taking extra time with a student to help them grasp a concept, or correcting them in a way that encourages them to do better; putting in extra hours for a school program, or attending a student's game to support them.
With our staff I can be sure that as our children learn who they are and what is important, they'll also understand that they are loved and cared for and always will be because of the love that God has poured out for us in His Son, Jesus. The love of God in Jesus is demonstrated toward our students by our staff and so I am thankful for them. What a blessing it is to see them working with our students.
