Weekly Newsletter – November 30, 2017

PRINCIPAL’S NOTE

This Sunday we start Advent, the Christian season of waiting and preparing for the celebration of the birth of Jesus. We invite you to prepare for Christmas with something special this year; perhaps an advent wreath in the home, a special family meal and prayer one night a week, or family attendance at Sunday services or church activities.

ADVENT SERVICE

Our Advent Service is a special service preparing for Christmas. It is our way to praise God and give thanks through violin, praise dance, and singing. This is not a Christmas Pageant, but rather a church service which will hopefully bring you into the real spirit of Christmas.
You are invited to the Advent Full Dress Rehearsal on Wed, Dec 13th , at 10AM, or the Advent Service on Thursday, Dec 14th at 7PM.

ADVENT SERVICE ATTENDANCE AND OUTFIT

All students are a critical part of our Advent Service, and their attendance is mandatory. Students must wear a white button up shirt, black dress pants, and black shoes. Please shop early if you need these uniform items. If you have an issue, please contact the office immediately.

EARLY DISMISSAL MONDAY, DEC 4.

All non-bus riders must be picked up at 12:30 on Monday, Dec 4.

2nd QUARTER MID-TERMS GO HOME TODAY

If your student is not doing well academically, please sign them up for Extended Day now.

CHOCOLATE CANDY SALES

All Candy sales orders and money needs to be turned in by Friday, Dec 1, so we can get the orders back in time for Christmas gifts. Please send correct money amounts in a plastic bag attached to your order sheet. Thank you for supporting our school!

IL SCHOLARSHIPS FOR OUR STUDENTS

We are eagerly waiting for family application information for a new program that can provide our families a 100% tuition and fees scholarship for the 2018-2019 school year. All families on the Free or Reduced Lunch Program are eligible to get these scholarships. We will hold several mandatory meetings in December to give more information and to sign up families to apply on-line at our school on Jan 2, 2018. This is great for you and our school!!!
