Thought for the Week: PEACE: It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart.

Parent Action Item: We understand that from time to time it is necessary to sign children out during the school day. Please write a note in your child’s agenda and call the office to let them know. Students must come to the office to verify that they are leaving the building.

Prayer for the Second Week of Advent

God of power and mercy open our hearts in welcome.

 for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
