St. Mark News

December 7th, 2015

Dear St. Mark Families,

December is a very busy month here at school. We hope that you will enjoy various events we have planned to celebrate Jesus’ birth. We will begin sharing our Christmas spirit on Saturday December 12th with Christmas Caroling after 5:00 Mass, and Home and School Winterfest activities following. This will be a great night for St. Mark students and their families!

Our annual Christmas Show is on Wednesday, December 16th at 6:30 PM. Mrs. Wade and the children have been working very hard learning their routines. We are really looking forward to the show this year. We will celebrate a school Mass before we break for the holiday at 8 AM on December 23rd. Its one of our favorite Masses of the year as we celebrate the true meaning of Christmas together. We invite all friends and family to join us if you are available!

St. Mark School children are very kind and giving and they love to make people smile. If you know of anyone who could use our prayers, or who could use help putting a smile on their face please let us know. The children would love to make cards for them!

Finally, as we welcome December, I hope this poem, written by one of our 6th Grade students will put a smile on your face. May you and your family enjoy all the joys of the season!

God bless,

Mrs. Sanson
