Advent is Upon Us
We will soon arrive at two of the most celebrated days in our annual calendar. The biggest and brightest of these is Christmas. And after that, New Year’s Eve. Who doesn’t enjoy parties, lights and decorations, and presents? And New Year’s Eve! Don’t we all long to turn the page on 2020 and start a NEW year right about now?
The commercial side of the holidays are a lot of fun. But let’s not miss the most special thing that we celebrate on December 25th. A great way to prioritize the most important thing about this season is to follow the tradition of generations of Christians before us and prepare our hearts to celebrate Jesus’ birth by observing Advent.
Advent. A time to reflect, to anticipate, to hope. A time to rejoice that we are alive in Christ and to remind ourselves that we are still waiting for our full redemption. A time to give thanks that Jesus has come, and to look forward to when He will come again. A time to remember that the best is yet to come.
We certainly hope the best is yet to come. For many, life feels like it couldn’t get much worse. It’s been a tough year. But we have persevered.
If you are weary and your hope is faltering enter Advent and anticipate. Draw near and listen for His footsteps. Sit quietly for a few moments and ask Jesus to speak to your heart. Allow Him to wrap you in warmth and rekindle your hope.

A message for Parents with students in Grades 1-5:
Holy Angels is different than most schools in the Arch in terms of Foreign Languages. The report card was not set up by the Arch to include our three foreign language options for grades 1-5. They are working on this and when it is corrected the teachers will send home your child's foreign language grade. All other grades will show up on their report card. We expect this to be resolved in the next week. Thank you for your patience.

The teachers and staff would also like to thank the families that brought lunch to us on Tuesday, November 24th. It was a great way to spend time together as we headed into the Thanksgiving break.
We could not be more grateful to all the families at Holy Angels for always supporting the teachers and students! You make this a great school!!!

Boys & Girls Club Basketball Leagues
A Message From Max Roy
Hello Washington County community!
I hope this finds you all well as we enter into this holiday season. Here at the Club, we wanted to reach out to let you know that we will be offering our youth basketball leagues from January – February.
We will be doing so in a safe and responsible manner, as we will have some new rules in place to conduct the league. These rules include elements such as mask wearing, limited attendance at games, and social distanced seating.
We will also be sanitizing and disinfecting the gymnasium between games and keeping the operation as smooth as possible to ensure the health of everyone attending our games.
You can find our registration forms online at www.wcbgc.org/sports-leagues.
We hope to see your child there for this great opportunity to learn the fundamentals of basketball and have fun while doing it!
If you should have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to my contact information below.
