Written by Meg Jenista Kuykendall from Washington, DC

Older voice: At the start of a new school year, we think of all that God is calling us to make.

Young voice: Making our lunch and making it to the bus stop on time. Making friends and making the team.  Making art, music, math equations and computer code.

All voices: May God the Father guide our making

Young voice: We think, with excitement and fear, of all the work ahead in this new school year.

Older voice: Administration, janitorial staff, teachers, social workers, counselors, cafeteria workers, crossing guards, safety officers, classroom aides, and volunteers all work to keep our students safe, healthy, learning, and flourishing.

All voices: May God the Son our working bless
