A Note from Miss Geene
As this is the third week of Advent, we will continue to focus on strengthening our relationship with God. This week will be a short week, but a busy one. On Tuesday, the students will participate in the Christmas Music Concert. Please make sure the students arrive in Neglia Hall by 6:30pm. On Thursday, the students will participate in an Advent prayer retreat and will be dismissed at 11:30am. If I don’t see you before break, I hope each of your families have a wonderful Christmas!
There will be no Snack Shack this week.
Below is a list of the students who are on Honor Guard this week. If your student is participating, they must stay until the end. Please do not pick them up during car line unless I have been given a note. Thank you for your support!
