Weekly Update - December 1, 2017
Dear Parents,

This past Tuesday (Giving Tuesday) we had representatives from Daystar, Sallie's House, Pet Pal, and Clothes to Kids come to our morning assembly to speak about what their organizations do for the community. Our hope is that the speakers ignited a spark to get the kids thinking about what they can do to help others.

Our intent during these three weeks before Christmas vacation is not to stress families out with one more thing to do, it's to encourage you to take time out from the craziness of the season and think about the true meaning of Christmas. Giving to others whether it's your time, talent or treasure is really what it's all about.

I encourage you to have a conversation with your children and talk about what you would like to accomplish as a family this Advent season to prepare your hearts for Christmas. I'm sure you can come up with some meaningful ways to help others.

Enjoy your weekend!!

Yours in Christ,
Mrs. Bogataj
Updates and Reminders
**We have started our annual Day of Giving collection. This is different than the toy drive that we just finished. Please look at the flyer below and encourage your children to bring in items from the list. The list may look overwhelming at first, but we do not expect you to bring an item for each organization . Just do what you can. We are blessed more than we know and giving to those less fortunate is a wonderful way to thank God for our own blessings. Day of Giving
