Our Seventeenth Week!

A few things I need to tell you about this week. First, our school mass will be on Tuesday this week celebrating the beginning of the "Year of Mercy."
Second, we have the Faith In Action Christmas Angel Tree: students are asked to gather Angel Tree donations for Clare House. If you would like to participate, please send in individually wrapped kid snacks. We are collecting them in a tote by the front office.
Lastly, There is a winter break reading challenge. For more information, please click on the link below.

Kindergarten Secret Santa Gift Exchange

I would like for each student in the class to bring a gift wrapped book (under $5.00) to school by Wednesday, December 16th. I will put all the books under our classroom Christmas tree and we will have a gift exchange on Thursday, December 17th. Please do not put names on the gifts as we will keep it a secret until we pick the books.
