Information will be coming home today regarding tickets for our annual Christmas program and dinner.  Please note: the program itself is free to attend and the doors will open at 6:30 for seating.  Tickets for the dinner will be $8 per person, and the gym doors will open for seating at 5:30pm with dinner service starting at 5:45.  Please see the attached letter for more information!

K-4 students who do not wear costumes are asked to wear dress clothes- no jeans, t-shirts with writing or graphics, or flip flops. Some 3rd and 4th grade students will have costumes- please check with your child next week to see if they have a costume!

5-10th grade students will need to wear all black to serve the Christmas dinner. No jeans, no shirts with graphics or writing, and comfortable black shoes.  School dress code rules still apply, so please do not wear tight fitting clothing.  You will be asked to change.

We are in need of some prop items for the Christmas program.  If you have any of these items we can borrow for the week of the performance, please contact Mrs. Stribling!

  • a twin size bed                                                
  • a stand up privacy screen
  • a tall desk or bistro table and stool                  
  • plaid lap blankets
  • knitted shawls (think grandma style knitted shawls)

From the Principal's Desk . . .

This has been quite an exciting year already… but as always, I am looking forward to celebrating the Christmas season with our school. Seeing the information about the Christmas program reminds me of the great opportunity we have to share Christ’s love and celebrate His birth. Only 7 weeks til Christmas!

In Christ, 

Mr. Horning
