Dear SJB Families,
I hope everyone had a relaxing Thanksgiving weekend. Time with family thinking of all we are given is a special blessing. We have had a busy week at school. I once again visited classrooms and witnessed our amazing teachers at work. Miss Strack's class did a "Neverending Story" where they recalled a previous story they read. Each student had to add a detail form the story as they went around the room. Mrs. Pleus's room was working with place value to really understand the values a digit of a number represents. At the beginning of each math lesson, they have a Mystery Number game where they are given three clues and have to guess the number. There are some amazing math students in that class!
Speaking of 2nd grade, they will receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation tomorrow morning. What a great gift this sacrament is. Please keep these students in your prayers.
The Advent Season is upon us! This Sunday is the first sunday of Advent and we should all spend some time preparing our hearts in a special way for the coming of Christ. In the busyness of the Christmas Season, it is so easy to overlook the blessings and opportunities Advent brings. Reflection on preparation for Christ and making sure we have "room at the inn" is so important.
St. Nick Breakfast also happens this weekend. Go to Mass and then join us in the PAC for pancakes and sausage. It is always a great time! Come bid on some of the wonderful auction items our Arts and Enrichment committee have put together!
