The 2019-2020 theme, God G.I.D.E.S. My Path, and the verse that goes with it, Psalm 25: 4-5, were compiled as part of process we went through with the teachers. It stems from the desire to equip our students to handle negative situations well, not to give up too easily, and to be able to walk in other’s shoes to understand what others are going through. While seeking out a direction for this year’s theme, a book was recommended to Mr. Eggold called The Formative Five – Fostering Grit, Empath, and other Success Skills Every Student Needs. This helped us set some thoughts about the social and emotional well-being of our students and how we as a school might help them grow in these areas and prepare them for adult life of success.
Show me your ways, LORD, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Psalm 25: 4-5
