Aloha Common Grace ‘ohana, We hope you and your family are staying safe. The pandemic is affecting the way we are able to relate to children, but we are doing all we can. Currently, we are reviewing and revising our policies and procedures to keep our keiki and staff safe throughout the school year. We are also building a curriculum that can accommodate online or face-to-face training and mentoring, based on the effects of the pandemic. This summer, we checked on our in-need families and provided them resources such as school supplies, hand sanitizers, protective masks and general information such as food bank pick-ups and hotlines. With schools most likely going online in the first quarter, it’s vital to reach the kids. These keiki are even more isolated at home and the need for one-on-one attention is greater. Providing mentors is critical. We need your help to continue fostering relationships between mentors and mentees.
