Following Directions the Mr. Zeares Way
Mr. Zeares's 2nd Grade learned a valuable lesson in following directions. Mr. Zeares set the gymnasium up with numerous obstacles. The 2nd graders then paired up with one student covering their eyes and the other guided their partner through the obstacles with directions like two steps forward, one step left, and then move forward again. The objective was to make it successfully across the gymnasium without running into anything. Here Lenna Ciampi guides here partner Carter Nevius across the floor.

Prayer of St. Columba

Be a bright flame before me, Oh God, a guiding star above me. Be a smooth path below me, a kindly shepherd behind me today, tonight and for ever. Alone with none but you, my God I journey on my way; what need I fear when you are near, O Lord of night and day? More secure am I within your hand than if a multitude did round me stand.

Amen
