Dear Parent(s),
    Welcome to our second week of Advent.  A week that means preparing.  As we prepare for the coming of Christ and all that comes with the coming of Christmas, what a wonderful way to prepare for Christmas then coming  and listening to our children sing on Thursday night.  Please have your children come dressed nicely (no hats or items on their heads that would block other  parents from seeing their own children performing) and send them to the classrooms without coats by 6:15.  The production begins at 6:30. This coming week all students who are Catholic will have the opportunity to receive Reconciliation on Tuesday.  Yet, another way to prepare our hearts for the coming of Jesus at Christmas.
    The following are the topics we will be covering this coming week:
