December 4 - 8

I can hardly believe that it's December already! We've been so busy learning, planning, and creating that our days go so quickly. I am impressed with the ideas that the children share. They are learning so much in so many ways. They truly are a joy to watch grow as learners.

As we start this Advent season we will begin to prepare for the coming of our Lord. How do we prepare ourselves at home? At school? In our community? What can we do to live out our mission in our daily lives? This past week we set goals for ways to serve others. We made a plan, discussed the things that we needed in order to achieve our plans, things that might get in the way of our plans and how we can overcome those things. As a family perhaps you can plan a way to prepare for Christmas that includes "Caring for Everyone in Our Common Home". 

I would like to request that each child bring a roll of duct tape (the large/wide kind). Your child can choose what pattern or colour that they prefer. Please bring it in by Thursday.
