In the midst of the reopening of public and private schools during the COVID-19 pandemic, the success of creating a safe environment at Landmark Christian School will depend on a shared commitment to the values that have always undergirded our community: selflessness, taking care of one another, and good leadership by everyone who counts themselves a War Eagle. We not only belong together, but we must also move forward together, stronger, as never before to fulfill the promise of Landmark Christian School in this moment of uncertainty and disruption.
I just wanted to take a minute to share how grateful we are for Coach White’s 7th grade Bible - Kindness Challenge. Our daughter has woken up each morning excited to spread Jesus’s loving-kindness with our neighbors. Quarantine has been a creative catalyst! It keeps Charlotte thinking creatively and focusing on putting the needs of others ahead of her own.
We live in a sinful world, and racism is one of those sins. As a board, we believe the death of George Floyd and all forms of racism against the Black community are intolerable. Our hearts are broken for this family and far too many others who have been negatively impacted by acts of indifference. Our desire as a Board is to acknowledge current events, knowing our response will teach our children more about our relationship with God and our love for others. As a Landmark community, we must be actively anti-racism.
