This Week ...

We are so happy to welcome everyone back following our Thanksgiving Break!

During this first week of Advent, we will focus on the significance of this special season in the Church and why the experience of waiting, hope, and preparation are still so important in our lives today. Enjoy the links included below for a bit of Advent inspiration!

In keeping with tradition, we have selected a school-wide Advent Service Project. While there is such great need throughout our community, we have learned that the St. Therese Center (8th Grade's Service Project) is experiencing a tremendous shortage in their food pantry. We are most grateful for any and all contributions. We will continue to accept donations until December 10th. Here is a link to our flyer listing all of the items we are collecting. Thank you!

  1. Identify a problem.
  2. Explore possible solution strategies.
  3. Act on your strategies.

Be sure to practice this skill often – you can do it!
