Our Father, we praise You for the privilege of new beginnings. Thank You for letting us peek into Your creation and explore Your handiwork. Thank You for the secrets You share with Science Teachers and Students.
Enable us to walk with integrity into the opportunities You lay before us. As we work out of our humanity, teach us to admire the accomplishments of others without envying their acclaim, to follow the example of leaders without belittling their discoveries, to praise the ingenuity of the creative without distracting them with flattery, to lead the learner without manipulating the mind, and to grow wise through reflection, experience and service.
Keep our hearts fresh and our minds open to the possibilities of growth through which You may choose to stretch us.
Help us to handle Your insight with wisdom so that we can honor You in all our ways, for we recognize that we abide in Your kingdom, under Your power, for Your glory. Amen.
Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s):
My name is Leilani Olaso and I am your child’s science teacher. I am delighted to have your child in my class this year, and I am looking forward to a very successful year. I have high expectations for your child and I will do all that I can to help your child achieve those expectations.
I will be expecting all work assigned in class to be completed. Throughout the year, I will also be assigning projects in the current topic being covered. Projects are to be completed at home. Your help and support will not only make your child more successful in school this year but will instill good study habits that will last a lifetime.
Finally, I want you to know that one of my most important goals this year is to keep the lines of communication open with you. Please do not hesitate to contact me at 247-3092, ext. 222 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns during the year.
