12/10 Weekly news

Dear Families:

Many thanks to all of you who have generously given gift cards for Youth on Their Own as well as those of you who sent in eggs for our Casa Maria program.  The Youth on Their Own program will continue until Monday, December 17.  You are all appreciated very much.  We talked about how important it is to make a difference in other people’s lives.  Thank you so much for your participation in this important lesson.

With St. Nicholas Day out of the way (such a great performance!), we will still have a very busy week.  Mrs. Scovil, the Museum of Art docent, will be in tomorrow to work again with the kids.  Everyone enjoys her lessons and the project they will be doing with her.

On Thursday we will be having our last vocabulary test (10 words) and an assessment on Hatchet.  We will not be starting another novel study until after Christmas.

On Friday we are looking forward to our Virgin of Guadalupe chapel.  This is another beautiful story, and we always enjoy this chapel.

Thank you again!
