The Saints' Sentinel; vol. 19
From the desk of Nicolle Schroeder
I hope this message finds you well. I'm sure if you are like me, you feel as though the season is moving along so quickly.
It's beautiful to walk through Advent along side our students. We as teachers and staff, get to share in their excitement, joy, and at times sadness. This week, Ms. Carr engaged her 4th graders in an activity in which they were to associate Advent vocabulary with other words. One student said, "I put Messiah next to candle because He is the Light of the World." Walking through our 1st grade classroom a student told me, "Mrs. Schroeder, Christmas is a hard time for me because last year we lost our dog 7 days before Christmas." Their ability to reflect and value their emotions is awe inspiring!
May we take a lesson from the children. Let us find the time and space to prepare, quiet, and discipline our hearts for the full joy of Christmas.

The Lucky Draw~
Sorry... it doesn't involve travel to a warm, sunny destination. :(
You would not win a cool tailgate party with Packer tickets for your whole family.
It is NOT a French themed wine basket complete with Parisian chocolates and cheese.
It does involve quality time with our awesome teachers, staff, and principal!
Stay tuned for the big announcement at the Christmas Program!

Scenes from the week~
LOWER YOUR TUITION BILL WITH SCRIP!
SCRIP is a year round fundraising program managed by St. Bernard and St. Pius X. You purchase gift cards or certificates at face value. Merchants have provided these gift cards or certificates to the parishes at a discount that varies and is listed on the SCRIP order form for each parish. These discounts (SCRIP profits or rebates) are then accumulated and recorded for each school family. Fifty percent of the SCRIP profits earned by each family are returned as a credit on their tuition statements twice a year (January and May.)
Scrip rebates for purchases from May – mid-December will be applied to January tuition statements, so get those scrip purchases made in the next two weeks!
