? of the Day: 12/12: What are 5 things that you feel are the essence of you - that when you meet Jesus, He will say, "Good job my good and faithful servant, you have done well" because you have prepared - used your essence/the gifts He gave you in the way He wanted you to use them? Ask your parents what they think these might be for you. Be prepared to write about them. Sheep, shepherds, 2 angels PLEASE write the words to "Looking for the Light."
Dear 8th Grade Parents ~ December 9, 2019
Your 8th grader will be performing in our school's Christmas Program on Wednesday, December 18th, in St. Patrick's Church at 6:30pm. We look forward to seeing all of you there. Each one of them has a role in the play and they will never again experience an 8th grade Christmas Program so I know that they will all participate! They have done a wonderful job singing and preparing for it!
That night the 8th Grade class also raises money for the Spirit of Christmas with our annual "Christmas Bake Sale." Each 8th grader is expected to provide a homemade dessert which is wrapped nicely on glass or china, so they make a special Christmas gift and bring greater donations. These can include cookies, brownies, cakes, pies, candies, cupcakes, pops, maybe your family’s special Christmas baked treat - nothing store bought PLEASE! These items should be dropped off at St. Patrick's Church on Wednesday morning at 7:50am when you drop your child for practice at the church. If you have any questions, feel free to let us know. Thank you!!
We also need parents to volunteer to organize desserts on Wednesday morning and to sell them Wednesday night before and after - NOT during - the play. Please sign up on the flyer coming home tomorrow afternoon if you can help in the morning or evening at the St. Patrick’s Church.
