12/2-12/6

Hello Families!

I hope you are enjoying the Thanksgiving Holiday so far! I love how this long weekend always gives me a chance to recharge and ruminate before the beginning of Advent!

The 6th grade will be very busy this week starting a new trimester, finishing their compare and contrast rough drafts, and practicing for the Christmas Program. We will also be continuing the beautiful tradition of Hallway Advent Prayer on Tuesday, 12/3 and will continue hallway prayer through the Season of Advent. This wonderful celebration begins each morning (except Mondays due to Monday Morning Prayer) at 8:35AM. Lastly, I would like to remind you that the Activity Center is in use from 3:00PM-5:30PM each day by the ELC. For safety reasons, please understand the Activity Center is not available as a play area after school.
