A couple of weeks ago we had a parent/child work day to clean our school before the teachers’ first days. I had no idea how many people planned to help out, and was delighted that 18 moms, grandmothers and children arrived at the school ready to work!
Adults and children were working side by side and really making a difference! Inside and out there were suds, and laughter, and conversation.
Three families brand new to our school came to help. Another mom rearranged her work schedule because she thought it was an important lesson for her children to know they could make a difference by helping.
In the words of one teacher: “I feel so blessed by this gift, that when I arrive at the school it will be clean and ready for us to set up!”
Thank you children and families for this generous gift of time and love and hard work to Amazing Grace Preschool!
