Advent Glove Drive
We are collecting gloves for Mercy Watch to give to the homeless during Advent. Gloves can be purchased at the Dollar Store and are much needed! Collection for gloves will occur from 12/4 through 12/19. Thank you for thinking of those unfortunate brothers and sisters of ours who are outside in this cold weather.
Christmas Nativity Play
Our play rehearsals are going well. We will continue practicing 3-4 days per week. Students have been told what to wear under their costumes. Please make sure your child has what they need for their costume. All students will wear socks during the play.
Dress Rehearsals: Please have your child’s costume pieces available for dress rehearsals.
12/20 – 6:30pm - Please have your child meet in the Cry Room to dress in costumes.
Help Needed after 12/20 Performances
Following our Nativity Play in the church, there will be a Band concert in the gym. I am asking any and all of the 8th Grade parents and students to help me to clean up the church following the Band concert. Costumes, props, etc. will need to be brought back to the 8th Grade classroom and put away. Remember, that I will be having surgery the next morning and will be unable to clean up and put these things away during the break. I would appreciate any and all help! Thank you, in advance!
Christmas Party – 8th Grade
We will be having a Christmas Party on the morning after our Christmas Program. The party will be 12/21 from 8:45-10:15. I am having a Rotator Cuff Repair (shoulder) surgery that morning and apologize that I will not be there. I will make sure that the substitute teacher has all of the details for this party to be fun for your children.
We are completely out of graph paper. If your child needs graph paper, please purchase some for the New Year. I try to make sure that you are not supplying paper for other students. Many students are asking others for graph paper and I think that they should bring in their own. Please check with your child to find out about their current supply.
Also, we are almost out of Kleenex. Students go through a large amount of tissue during the winter months. If you could please send 2 boxes of tissue in with your child before the New Year, that would be much appreciated!
