Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Windows and Mirrors: A Program about Diversity for Grades 4-5

Leader Resource 1: Letter to Board of Trustees

Adapt this letter to seek permission for participants to take on some duties of a congregational staff member and invite the staff member to enjoy a day off.

Dear (Name of Board President)

The 4th and 5th grade Windows and Mirrors group is learning about the importance of valuing the people who do service occupations for the benefit of us all. As a Faith in Action project, we want to do the work of our congregation’s custodian, (name of custodian), for one day.

We are requesting permission for (name of custodian) to get a paid day off. We will take responsibility for completing that day’s duties.
