TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT!
Our twelfth annual Advent Service-Walking in the Light of God– is tonight, Thursday, December 17. As you are aware, all students are required to attend. Thanks, in advance, for making sure your child arrives at the school chapel no later than 6:40pm, dressed in plain dark slacks, dark shoes and socks, and plain white shirt/blouse. Jewelry is limited to a watch and stud earrings. Please make sure your child does not have gum or a cell phone with them. Remind family and friends that seating is limited and that we will start on time. Students and staff members have been working hard to create an inspiring, spiritual experience for you. We look forward to seeing you tonight!
May Christ’s gift of Hope, Peace, and Joy fill your heart this Advent and Christmas Season.
There’s still one more day to bring an item for our Advent Giving Tree. Friday morning, Mr. Dave will take all donated hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, and socks to C.U.P. to help those in need have a warmer winter. We are hoping all children will have donated at least one item…for it is in giving that we receive.
Our last school Mass for 2015 is tomorrow at 8:30am. Eighth grade will lead. Please feel free to come and join us in prayer as we look forward to the birth of the Christ Child.
If your child stayed a peacemaker throughout December, they will be treated to a movie and popcorn on Friday, December 18; they also may be out of uniform. For those that earned an Orange W.I.N. slip, they will spend time reflecting on the choices they made during a Second Step lesson.
EARLY DISMISSAL/CHRISTMAS BREAK
Our school Christmas break will begin at 12:30p.m. on Friday, December 18, through Monday, January 4. School will resume on Tuesday, January 5, 2016!
Students in Grades 6-8 will begin a semester of ballroom dancing on Thursday, January 7. We look forward to welcoming back our instructor, Mr. Tom Obermeyer, of Just Dancing Ballroom Studio.
We are sorry to say “Good-bye” to Mrs. Patti Sauer, our 6th-8th grade Language Arts teacher. We wish her well on her new job at St. Louis University working in their stewardship department. We would also like to welcome back Mr. Matthew Guiffre’ who will work with Mrs. Roberta Trost in our Advancement Department and teach science to our 7th and 8th graders.
