“At many times throughout their lives, children will feel the world has turned topsy-turvy. It’s not the ever-present smile that will help them feel secure. It’s knowing that love can hold many feelings, including sadness, and that they can count on the people they love to be with them until the world turns right side up again.”
– Fred Rogers
As each day passes, our collective sense of what is normal is redefined. The impact of this pandemic has affected our families in various ways. Despite these difficulties, be encouraged that just being present for the people we love is enough. Whether cooking a meal, playing a game or shutting out the constant stimuli of the newsfeeds and enjoying a walk through nature, these are the demonstrations of presence that will keep us emotionally and spiritually healthy.
A Message For Our Sterling Family
Save the Date:
Wednesday, April 15th: 6:30 – 8:30 PM LHU Board Meeting
Summer Camp Registration:
Sterling is still planning to hold summer camps this year as long as the Governor allows for care centers to be open at that time. Our teachers are excited to get back to Sterling and have a great summer with our students! At this time only your completed registration form is needed. No deposit will be collected. Once it is confirmed that camps are good to go, we will contact all pre-registered families with payment information.
This week our entire community–faculty, administration, students and families–has been actively engaged in the Distance Learning experience. We’re exceedingly proud of our faculty and staff for working diligently and creatively to continue fulfilling our mission in these troubling times. While we continue to learn and tweak our plans, we are proud of and confident in the value of the education and support Sterling is offering families at this time.
New weekly work plans will be shared from your child’s teacher on Sunday evening by 5pm. These plans are opportunities for your child to continue learning.
Last week we invited you to connect with AmazonSmile and iGive as you do your online shopping as a simple way to continue to support our beloved school.
In case you missed it, here are simple instructions on how to have a percentage of your Amazon purchases donated to Sterling and how to register with iGive so that Sterling receives cash back from many of the places that you may already shop.
