Partnership with Parents
At Covenant Academy we believe we are better together. Every school year, we begin the first day of school with our First Chapel of the school year, a symbolic way to remind us of our partnership in seeking after wisdom together. Parents and teachers join together to raise up another generation to be disciples of Christ. We depend on one another, support one another and sharpen one another as iron sharpens iron. During First Chapel, we as an entire school, parents, teachers and students recite the following from Proverbs Chapter 2.
Parents lead with:
“My child, receive my words
And treasure my commandments within you,
Make your ear attentive to wisdom,
Incline your heart to understanding;
For if you cry for discernment,
Lift your voice for understanding;”
The teachers join in with:
“If you seek her as silver
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will discern the fear of the Lord
And discover the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
The students reply to these words with:
”He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
He is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
Guarding the paths of justice,
And He preserves the way of His godly ones.”
These words of Solomon penned so many years ago remind us that the way of learning wisdom is active, communal and inter-generational. We are better together and so blessed to be part of the community of Covenant Academy.
