Dear Parents, 

We have weathered the storm with all the sickness going around. The kids are mostly back and have been working hard each day on the Nativity play and Advent service, so I really appreciate it when those who aren’t feeling wear a mask – this will keep us all in school and able to participate. On Monday (December 5), we have the honor of presenting a short Advent service to the entire school. The service starts promptly at 8:05, so drop off your eighth grader at the church no later than 7:50 so that we can get in our positions and be ready. We will be presenting the Jesse Tree. The service will last no more than 10-15 minutes, so please come, if you are able. 

The Nativity play script has been researched and written, a storyboard was made to keep us organized, roles have been cast, and props made. We will now focus on blocking and acting out this special play, which will be presented on Thursday, December 15th at 7PM. I will send more details about what time your child needs to be at the church that day as we get closer. 

We had to be creative to be able to include all twenty-five kids in the play in some way, so we have many scenes where kids are “acting” (holding) as trees, animals, stars, etc. In order to blend in with the background and so that the props stand out, the kids should dress in nice jeans (no holes or rips) and a black long-sleeved shirt. Shirts with logos work, but the shirt will need to be turned inside out and the tag cut off. We don’t want anyone burdened with buying clothing (hence the jeans – which everyone has), so please borrow what you need.

I told the kids that they will have only one book report due in December, but it must be turned in by December 16th (the last school day of the month). Please remind them about this and also about the reading log due on Monday. 

Other upcoming:

Thursday, December 8th – Feast of the Immaculate Conception 12:30 in church – dress uniform

Friday, December 9th – Regular uniform (we will still go to Mass, but it will not be all-school)

Thanks, and have a great, warm weekend! Pray for good health!

Chris
