This Sunday is the Third Sunday of Advent. The waiting and watching for us are almost over. Perhaps God is waiting, too. Is God waiting for us to be light for the world, to make peace? Is God waiting for us to care more, to forgive more, to love more? Is God waiting for us to recognize Him already with us?
Next Tuesday and Wednesday your child will have an opportunity to do some Christmas shopping. Home and School is hosting our 4
annual Holiday Treasures event. Information was sent home this week.
Next Thursday, will be a Christmas dress down day. Wear your ugly or beautiful Christmas sweaters or anything red or green to celebrate the season.
Thank you to those who returned your registration and fee for next year. If you have not done this, please do so by Friday, December 14th. There is a $25.00 late fee after that date. If for some reason you are unable to pay your registration fee, please call me to make arrangements. We would still like you to register. Planning for the 2019-2020 school year has started. We are already getting calls about open spots for next year. Sunday, January 27th is the beginning of Catholic Schools Week and our Open House. More information will be coming in January.
If you are shopping with Amazon, please use AmazonSmile. It is the same website operated by Amazon. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, their foundation will donate 0.5% back to St. Mary's. See the link on the left.
