Hi SPS Families,
I hope everyone is having a nice week and I still can't believe we are already in December! Before we know it, we will be celebrating Christmas!
Please join us on Saturday for our annual "Festival of Lights", which will take place right after the 4:00 mass. After mass, we will have a short blessing of the manger that is right by the south side entrance of the church, and then we will all head inside the gym for fun! We will have crafts, games, cookies and hot cocoa, and of course, a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus!
Students in grades 3-8 will be attending our school Advent reconciliation in the church at 1:00 on Monday.
We have a 1:30 dismissal on Tuesday, December 6th. The teachers and I will be listening to a presentation regarding some exciting and new curriculum ideas for next school year.
Also on December 6th, it is St. Nicholas Day! Our Junior Honor Society will go to all of the classrooms, talking with the kids about why we celebrate this day and give a little history on how this day came about. Each student will receive a candy cane from the JHS.
Santa's Secret Workshop returns to SPS on Wednesday, December 7th and will run through Friday, December 9th. The kids get to buy you and your family thoughtful gifts and we will even take care of the wrapping! Please see the attached schedule for when your kids will go to the shop, which will be in the Hospitality Room.
As always, if you need anything, please do not hesitate to contact me.
