MSG from Mrs. Fonseca, December 11, 2020

December 11th, 2020

Always be joyful; pray constantly; and for all things give thanks; this is the willof Godfor you in Christ Jesus. 1Thessalonians 5:16-18

Dear Families,

In light of the restrictions being extended to January, our Christmas will definitely feel different this year. It may feel like we are experiencing less joy but the second reading for this Sunday reminds us that God’s will for us is to be faithful and to pray constantly. In spite of what is happening around us, we can still be the light for others by sharing our joy and giving thanks for what we do have. I continue give thanks for my family and the health of those I love and the safety of our community.

A BIG HIGHLIGHT for us this week is the Christmas Concert! Please refer to the other link sent out to you for the program and the video. You will need the password included in this email to view the video.

Another highlight this week was PJ Day with movies and popcorn! We had so much fun spending the day in our pjs and the smell of popcorn wafted in the hallways all day long!

And finally, this week was our door decorating challenge. There was so much creativity and love poured into our hallways this week! I have shared some photos below!

May the joy of the Advent season bring light and love in your hearts.

In Christ,

We collected $285.30 for Chalice on PJ Day! Thank you for your generosity.

Extra Clothes

The students are often coming in muddy and wet from recess. Ensure that your child is ready to go outside rain or shine! Please send an extra pair of pants, shirt and socks with your child. They do not have to be uniform pieces as they will only be used in emergencies.

Please consider supporting our local Knights of Columbus chapter in their annual charity appeal. The Knights do a lot for our community and our school.
