During this joyous and special time of the year our thoughts and conversations seem to slow down and we begin to think about our relationships: with Jesus, our Church, families and friends. Thoughts such as love, giving, sharing and compassion stand out as guiding rays of light and seem to take on a special sense of importance. We talk to our children about these values and their importance to each of us and to those close to us. This time of the year brings out the best in us and we seem to be more apt to share with others who don’t have as much as we do. The Giving Tree project at St. Peter’s Catholic Church is a wonderful opportunity for the children to really experience this.
Listening to Christmas stories and singing Christmas Carols help us to get into the spirit of Christmas. Last Friday we all watched the Ballet presentation of “Twas Before Christmas” at Koger Center and it was indeed fantastic and the 4K children started to show their high jumps and spin movements when we got back to school. The children will be participating in our Christmas Music Program later this week.
All of us at St. Peters Catholic School wish you and your family a very Merry, Merry Christmas!
