Week of December 10, 2018
There's no school mass tomorrow morning- ALL students in grades 3-8 will go to the church at 9:00 for a Penance Service, those that wish to participate in reconciliation will do so, others who are not Catholic or do not want to participate will continue to reflect/pray while at church and waiting for the others.
K-2 can join me in the lobby at 9:00 for our Advent prayer
It's time for the 10 Days of Christmas!!!!
SECRET SANTA- begins next Monday, December 17th- let us know if you need help with 'hiding' your gifts!
RUDY- our Elf on the Shelf has arrived!...
This will be a 'family' affair... If Rudy ends up in your room- it's your task to move Rudy to another classroom or common area the next morning (before students arrive)! Start your creative juices flowing now! Rudy will travel with a list to track where he's been along with some of his supplies! Feel free to include a class treat like kisses and candy canes! Thank you for playing along :) Don't forget to take and send me a photo of Rudy if he arrives in your class!

Third Grade fun
I had the pleasure of spending the day as the 'teacher' in grade 3 Wednesday- we were so busy this is the only picture I took (I know!!!)
What a great group of 8th graders- everyone had fun at the Semi Formal- even though they didn't dance much...
Let there be light
