Dear Parents,
I have shared this with your children before, but it bears repeating.  
The little baby Jesus doesn't care that Christmas dinner isn't what you would have chosen.
The little baby Jesus doesn't care if grandma is telling the same story again this year.
The little baby Jesus doesn't care who gets the highest score on the new game.
The little baby Jesus doesn't care how much traffic there was on the way to your relatives.
The little baby Jesus doesn't care who took the last chocolate chip cookie.
The little baby Jesus doesn't care who got the best gift in the Yankee swap.
The little baby Jesus DOES care about PEACE...on earth and the world and GOODWILL... toward men. And goodwill means treating each other with joy and love and respect.  
Have a nice break and this Christmas try to keep in mind what the little baby Jesus cares about.

Faculty & Staff Christmas Party: Last Friday the faculty and staff of BSS were able to kick back, relax, and enjoy each other's company at a HSA sponsored Christmas party. The HSA Hospitality Committee took care of every detail! The faculty and staff were treated to delicious food, drinks, and dessert. Thank-you to our very talented Hospitality Committee for throwing the party, and thank-you to all you do as parents, to raise funds for the HSA so that we can put on this event. It is a true example of what we can come together and do as a community. 

Faculty & Staff Christmas Fund: As previously mentioned we collected a lot of dough - thank-you everyone! On Wednesday Mr. Kelly had the pleasure of delivering bountiful gift cards to our faculty and staff. Because of your generosity our teachers are getting to have a very special Christmas!
