I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It was good to see all of the smiling faces coming in to school this morning. We only have a few weeks now until Christmas but so much going on before that. Next Thursday evening we have opening night of our fall drama production, Miracle on 34th Street. To preorder tickets for Thursday, Friday, or Saturday’s performances complete this form and return it to the office. Your seats will be reserved for you in the order that they come in. You can also purchase tickets at the door. All performances are at 6 pm.
Next Thursday and Friday we have Parent Conferences for grades 2 through 8. To sign up for a conference, go to Parent Teacher Conference Sign Up Link. The sign up will open at 7pm tonight.
Junior High parents have limited scheduled conference times on Friday for those who need to see all of the JH teachers. There are open times from 1:30 to 4:45 and 6 to 7 on Thursday for those who only need to see just a few JH teachers. 4th and 5th grades also have open times for those who wish to see the non-homeroom teacher. You can check the class newsletter for those times.
Finally, we are preparing for the Christmas Worship Service which will be outside right after school on Thursday, December 15. The gates will open at 2:30 pm for the 3:15 pm service. We welcome grandparents and other family members or friends to attend this beautiful service. Just bundle up if it is cold and bring your own seating. If by chance it is raining, we will move the service to the church but then we will only be able to accommodate parents.
Students will wear long pants and Christmas sweaters or nice shirts or blouses for the worship service. They can also get in the spirit with hats and scarves if they like.
The children have been working very hard to learn songs and instruments and this service is a retelling of the Christmas story. We ask that all guests remain for the entire service which last just an hour. Student will not be released to parents until the end of the service. Thanks for understanding.
Although these next weeks are super busy I hope that we all find time to appreciate our blessings and to remember what Christmas to all about.
