Protection and provision have been a part of the ongoing mission of Constanza School since its inception as a care center almost fifteen years ago. During the pandemic, these themes are even more clear – the school staff has modified the operation to include a relief food operation. The school has been buying food wholesale and repacking it to distribute to needy families in our community.
Along with the food items, staff share materials to help with families’ spiritual and emotional well-being. Teachers and counselors have maintained connections with their students via cell phones and social media. The school staff has even figured out ways to loan library books and celebrate birthdays and grade-level promotions.
Summer work has begun to prepare for having kids and staff back on campus in the fall. Stay tuned!
Given the challenges posed to the Constanza community by the pandemic over the few months, everyone shares in the joy of a job well done!
