Dear Parents and Guardians,

     We began the preparation for Christmas last week with the 1st Sunday of Advent. Students have been sharing their good deeds and acts of love during this season of Advent by participating in a very special activity designed by Sister Marie. We help children prepare for the birth of Christ in a variety of ways, always focusing on the spiritual development of our students.

      The feast of our patron, St. Nicholas on December 6th is another special addition to our Christmas Season. We will have a Prayer Service and then party with Santa to recognize our patron and ask him to pray for us.

    Our December Service Project - a joint venture between me and the 8th graders -- a Toy Drive. This toy drive will benefit children in Jersey City to help make their Christmas a little brighter.

   Our STEM Showcase organized by Mrs. Ellen Millan is scheduled for Wednesday, December 14th. Our Junior High students have been working for the past several weeks to create STEM projects that will dazzle us, I am sure.

     We have a Scholastic Holiday Book Fair scheduled for December 13th - 15th, and our Annual Children's Christmas Concert is set for Thursday, December 15 at 7PM in the church. Don't forget Breakfast with Santa - this is one of the most popular events of the school year - It is set for Saturday, December 17th. 

     It is well to remember that a grateful heart fills us with joy. May you have a blessed and joyous Christmas season.

Bernadette Miglin
