I want to send a huge thank you to the Chiricolo Family for donating a beautiful Christmas Tree for our classroom. It seems that those mischievous elves were at work in the past few months and ours went missing!

12/8 School Mass Immaculate Conception
12/15 Christmas Show 7:00
12/16 Polar Express Day
12/22 First Grade Christmas Prayer Service at 10:00 and Christmas Party
Christmas Show and Christmas Prayer Service attire: The children will be dressed as angels/characters for both. We ask that the boys wear pants, dress shoes and a lightweight festive shirt. For the girls, something festive with dress shoes but no heels. It gets hot on stage and on the altar wearing the costumes, so it's best to stay clear from sweaters!
For the Christmas Show, please plan on dropping off your child at 6:15 in the classroom.
Parents are welcome at the Prayer Service.
On Polar Express Day, the children may wear pajamas with sneakers. Please no slippers.
