The Christmas Program K-8th grade NEXT THURSDAY!
 Our 2017 Christmas Program, “Candy-Coated Christmas Carol” is being held on Thursday, December 14, at 7pm. Students K-8th Grade are asked to meet in their classrooms at 6:40pm wearing their “Christmas Best” outfit to get ready for the performance.  Dress Rehearsal is at 1:45 pm that day. It is open to the public for all who may not be able to come that night! Please excuse the sound checks and minor bleeps.

Christmas Store Thank you!
A HUGE "thank you" to all of the moms, dads and grandparents that volunteered their time at the Christmas Shop this week. Special thank you to Charlene Tegtmeier for all the work she put setting it up. 
This was such a fun and wonderful event, not only for the children, but the adults as well! We don't know who had a better time - the volunteers (helping children pick out gifts, listening to why they're choosing that certain item, and watching their faces as they help wrap everything up) or the children (taking their time looking over everything, anxious to find the perfect gift)?  
Advent Church Services
This week and through December the students will be attending the midweek Advent church services at 10:00 am each Wednesday in place of Wednesday morning chapel service. You are welcome and invited to come to any or all of these services, celebrating the joyous Christmas season.
