Children are you ready? Parent are you ready?

Back to School is just around the corner!!


We have kicked off this time with a wonderful Back to School Supply Giveaway and Journey Kids shared some concerns and excitement they may have for this new school year.

Concerns and Excitements

  1. Elementary

    • Excited about going on field trips

    • Excited about Art Class

    • Excited and worried about having a new teacher and making new friends

    • Excited about the food

  2. Pre-K, K

    • The majority in this class expressed excitement. There were a few who are scared, nervous.

This transition is crucial in a child’s life and in many situations this will set the tone to a good start. In effort to help us all as parents, ease the anxiety and worry, I have included some resources that hopefully will help us as we transition and adding …….. lots of prayer!!!

Thank you!

Thank you all who registered their students, who volunteered to purchase and bag the supplies and who sponsored and made it possible.
