Starting the School Year with Spirit-First Education
While students begin the school year, member-educators in Atlanta are earnestly preparing for 2010, when we officially start our Sunlight Activity. The Atlanta center is fortunate to have a wealth of professional educators. Working together with Sukyo Mahikari staff and members of the Sukyo Mahikari Youth Group, educators are honing age-specific lesson plans, following the regional curriculum initiated by Viviano Shocho, life-long educator and director of the Detroit Sukyo Mahikari center.
At our September meeting of the Sunlight Activity planning committee, we divided the center's 50 children into three age groups: 0 to 4, 5 to 10, and 11 to 16. We decided that each group should have two teachers and at least one youth group member, who will serve as an assistant. We determined the framework for lesson plans through March 2010. Covering three months of lessons per meeting, we should have 2010 planned in entirety by December, ready for the new year to begin!
Viviano Shocho visited Atlanta in June and facilitated a "Nurturing Youth Workshop," attended by educators and non-educators alike. Inspired by the event and under the guidance of local staff members, our educators are excited to lead a fundamental and enduring form of community service: nurturing young people.
The Virtues Project™introductory course is scheduled for October 3 and 4, from 9 a.m. to
4 p.m. and is open to all members and guests. Honored by the United Nations as a model global program for families of all cultures, The Virtues Project™ is a way of instilling moral (some would say spiritual) values in our children. Director Viviano, who offers this course throughout the country, leads this event.
