What a Blessed First Day of Classes!

Posted on September 9, 2016 at 12:20 AM Comments comments (0)

Our first day of classes went extremely well, and our children looked so nice in their uniforms! We're grateful for everyone's patience as we fine-tune our routine, but overall, we're very happy with how things went!  First and foremost, so many of our students stepped up to help us out that we were able to overcome those minor obstacles that we encountered.  Our older students were all super assistants, and even some of our youngest children were there with brooms and rags to help clean up after lunch and to set up and break down tables in the cafeteria.

In the interest of privacy, we've created a private site for sharing photos of our children with participating families.  We hope everyone received the email and could access the pictures of each grade grouping's "first day of class" photos.

Finally, if there are concerns or suggestions, please let us know so we can work to make things even better.  We want this co-op to provide a postive and enriching experience for all of our children.  

God bless & see you next week!

Dearest Jesus, as our school year begins tomorrow, we ask your favor and blessing on all of  us, and on all Christian co-ops and families that seek to share with your little ones the truths your Father has given us through the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the teaching of the Catholic Church. May our efforts this year help us all to grow in love for you and for those around us. Open our eyes and hearts to see as you see, and love as you love. May we daily strive to help our families, teachers and students see the gifts you have given us. Let us be born unto Wonder, Lord. Let us rejoice in you!

Hail Mary...

Our Father...

Dear Jesus, thank you for the many gifts you have given us in our lives. Help us to see the blessings that come, even in trials, so that we may glorify your Father and share His love with others. Please guide the hearts of all our teachers so that they may present well the truths you wish them to share. Please watch over your students, as well, that they may bring their full attention and effort to each class, whether at home or at co-op. May we all work diligently to know you better through the beauty of your creation. Guide us in our quest to encounter and appreciate the good, the true, and the beautiful things you have given us.

Dear Jesus, our greatest Friend, we ask for your favors for Seat of Wisdom Homeschool Cooperative and the relationships formed this academic year. Send your Spirit to help us all —adults, teens, and children — to grow in virtuous friendships that place you first in our lives and give glory to your Father in Heaven. May no person feel alone or ignored. May each child feel loved and special. May our conversations bring you glory and give joy to those around us. Mary, Blessed Mother, help us to be a light to all around us through our kindness, caring and attentiveness to all.

Hail Mary...

Our Father...

Glory Be...

Let us pray:

Lord, draw us closer to you, and to each other. Help us always to see others through the eyes of mercy we desire from you. Build in us a community that trusts you and seeks to give you our very best. Help us reject any temptation that leads us away from you, whether it be grumbling, gossip, lethargy, pride or greed. May we instead encourage one another and pray for one another. May we offer solutions, rather than criticism. Give us eyes of mercy, to see others' failings as opportunities of prayer, not stories to share. Help us to build each other up, rather than to tear each other down with our words and thoughts. Help us be a community committed fully to you.

Hail Mary...

Our Father...

Glory Be...

Let us pray:

Jesus, keep us and our children safe from the many evils present around us and within us. Draw our hearts to what is good, pure, and holy. Help us to overcome the parts of our human nature which displease you. Help us to see that our blessings are not in the things we own, the screens we view, the books we read, or the successes we achieve. Help us rather to seek you in the world around us, the words we read, the scenes we view, the songs we sing, and the people we meet. Walk with us on our journey, hear our sighs, share our smiles, and convict our hearts when we are tempted to stray from the path you lay before us. Help us to do your will.

Hail Mary...

Our Father...

Glory Be...

Let us pray:

Lord, be the ruler of our hearts and our homes. Send your spirit to guide us in our choices, so that we may make the best of the opportunities given us. Grant us the prudence to do what we ought, when we ought, and the wisdom to know when to acknowledge that something greater than laundry or dishes is at stake. Bless us with peace in our homes, among our family members, and in our hearts. Help all in our home to work together and to choose our words wisely, so that we may give you glory and be good examples to those around us. Through your Holy Spirit, strengthen us in virtue and guide us every moment of the day.

 

Hail Mary...

Our Father...

Glory Be...

Let us pray:

Dear Jesus, as we begin our school work, be present to us, and help us to be present to you and to each other -- without distraction or impatience. Remind us as we teach to see the wonder in each child’s eyes, the questions in the heart, and the joy of each accomplishment. Holy Mary, pray for our discretion, so that our corrections may be loving and patient, as are yours. Help us to see the world through their eyes, knowing that what is small and insignificant to us may be overwhelming and catastrophic in their minds. O Holy Spirit, remind us that time is short. Today is the day to share in their “littleness” and play a bit.

 

Hail Mary...

Our Father...

Glory Be...

Let us pray:

Dear Jesus, we look to you as the new school year approaches, placing you first in our lives and seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit in all that we say and do. Remove from our hearts all fears, frustrations, and disappointments of the past. Fill us with your grace, remind us of your love, and help us grow in virtue so that all glory may be yours. Let us look to you with trust in your promises, knowing that it is you, Jesus, who makes all things new for the glory of God the Father. Make us new, too, Lord. Renew us with the gifts only you can give.

Hail Mary...

Our Father...

Glory Be...

Let us pray:

Dear Jesus, Lord and Savior, we lift our hearts before you as we begin this novena. Please look kindly upon the families of Seat of Wisdom Homeschool Cooperative, and gather into our group those families, teachers, and students whom you desire to unite in this effort for the good of our children, our families, and your church. May we -- and all others who seek to serve you -- wholeheartedly enter into this school year with sincere hearts, willing hands, and patient spirits. Through the intercession of Mary, your Mother, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, may our efforts be a pleasing offering to the Father, so that people will know and believe all the Church entrusts to us.

Hail Mary...

Our Father...

Glory Be...

 

Mary, Seat of Wisdom,
