Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the annual prayer walk was held outside of the Madison Academy on the lawn. Families and our school family met to worship and then bathe Madison Campus Elementary and Madison Academy in prayer for everyone who walks the halls: students, teachers, and administrators. We asked for safety, wisdom, and discernment. We also asked for God to become more real in each of our lives and of those who walked the halls and where in classrooms.
Vespers started with praising God in song. Patrick King and Ireland Kroll lead.
Commencement on Sunday, May 31 turned out to be an almost perfect day! The only thing that could have been better was MORE people celebrating… and obviously that was not an option. If you missed the service, check out our YouTube channel.
Some see challenges… we see opportunities! During our post-week meetings, MA educators met (from 6′ apart) to reflect on the successes and learning experiences of virtual school then to ponder the possibilities for the future. Having fostered a culture of continuous improvement, we are eagerly developing intentional plans for multiple scenarios: (1) safe school on campus, (2) virtual school, and (3) a hybrid of both campus attendance and remote learning. Our preparations are not final, as the CDC, local government, and risk management continue to make changes in their recommendations. However, of this we are sure: we will be prepared to implement the necessary plans regardless of what the situation looks like.
Summer is always an exciting time on our campus… renovations, updates, and changes that make the place nicer, safer, and more usable for our students. This summer is no exception! We will bring you photos and details on the switches and upgrades in rooms, technology, and safety. We continue to be grateful for the generous gifts and grants that make these positive changes possible.
Next week is week of prayer. This week is important to the spiritual enrichment of our young people. Please start praying now that our student’s hearts will be receptive to the messages. We are asking families to come and join us in prayer from 11 a.m.-Noon Monday-Friday. Each day we will have a prayer leader leading out in: student prayer requests, for the speaker, for the teachers, and for hearts to be opened and ready.
