As we enter the 3rd and final week of Advent, I pray that all of you are blessed with the joy of the season, the Saviors birth and the excitement that surrounds it. Please try to remind your children that we should always be preparing: for special holidays like Christmas, for school by doing homework, and for the second coming of Jesus, which is the final judgment. The children went to confession this past week as a class, and going forth they should always try to make decisions based on what would make Jesus happy. Being kind, helping others, praying and going to church, these are the best birthday gifts we can give to Him.
Many students have brought in clementine crates, small wooden boxes or shoe boxes for our Christmas activity scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. If your child has not come in with a small box yet, please try to have one by Tuesday. Also if you have an extra roll of wrapping paper you can spare, please send that in also. Thank you!
Monday the K-1st and 2nd grades perform their Christmas show for the student body in the morning. Then in the afternoon the 3rd-4th and 5th perform.
I believe the arrival time for parents and students of 3-4-5 to arrive at school Monday night for the parents/family performance, will be 5:30. The show is at 6:00. You will drop your child off and they will come to the classroom before the show starts. You will then collect your child from their homeroom after the shows conclusion.
Wednesday the students will see the 6th-7th and 8th Christmas performance during the school day and the parents/family show is Wednesday evening.
