A Note from Mrs. Grant

As this is the second week of Advent, we are all focusing on strengthening our relationship with God. This will be a busy week for sixth grade. Monday and Wednesday we will participate in Mass. Then, on Friday, we will take our annual trip to the Koger Center to see our Strength and Movement teachers perform “The Grinch.”  

Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. There will be a schedule for January going home in the Tuesday folder on Tuesday. Please look for it. We will not have Snack Shack again until January. Thank you for your support!           

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!
