Christmas Performances

This Thursday, our school will put on two Christmas performances for parents (9:30 and 1:15).  Please note that we have gone with two performances in an attempt to cut them down and create shorter events.  We want people to stick around for all acts so students are validated in their efforts. Please note that performances are 30 minutes after the start of AM and PM.  This is to allow classes to get settled and organized. Thanks in advance for your support everyone.

Week 3 of Advent: Joy

Advent is about preparation and reflection. At this point in the journey, we can’t help but realize that the Saviour is coming and we can experience a sense of Joy in all we do. Not the kind of joy that depends on how much we have, what car we drive or how many talents we have developed. It is the kind of joy that recognizes that Jesus came into this world because he wanted to…for us. Not for the person we are expected to become, but for the person we actually are. Simple, yet profound, unconditional love. That is the message that puts a smile on our face and that is the truth we want to convey to our students. Please join us in reminding your children this week how much they are loved and how we can experience joy as a people of faith together in the Advent Journey.
