I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving break!

 

Christmas Program

The school Christmas program will be on Thursday, December 18 at 1:45. The program will be at church and students will be dismissed from church. The Kindergarten class will sing “All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth.” I will be sending home the lyrics to the song. I will also post a video on the blog to allow the students to practice at home with the music.

Raffle tickets

Please turn in your raffle tickets. The drawing for the tickets will take place on Wednesday (12/3).

Spirit shirts

Students will be able to wear their spirit shirts this Friday. There will be no mass this first Friday of the month. Rather, mass will be on Monday, December 8th.
