This Week in Review:

Dear Families,               

       Our students returned to school on Monday after Thanksgiving break still in holiday mode.  Our adorable Pre-K children enthusiastically entertained family and friends in a Thanksgiving Day performance that was a complete delight to all!  We are now able to move on to everyone’s favorite holiday …. CHRISTMAS!   

       There has already been quite a bit of chatter during lunchtime about elf sightings which adds to this magical time for our children. 

       Our 3rd graders got into the holiday spirit by attending a performance of A Christmas Carol at the Tarrytown Music Hall on Thursday.  The students were enthralled by the performance and truly grasped the message that was portrayed through this classic story.

       It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at Annunciation School thanks to Celeste Hughes who generously donated two wreaths for our front doors.  Teachers and students have also begun to decorate our classrooms and hallways. 

       The Advent wreath will soon be on display as December 2nd marks the first Sunday of Advent. The following Advent Wreath Prayer will be shared with your children on Monday morning:

       Dear Jesus,

As we light the candles on the Advent wreath,

may the light of Your presence bring joy to your hearts.  

Bless our family and our friends,

and be with all those in need this Christmas season.



      Our Values Infusion Program is introducing PATIENCE as the value for the month of December.  Hmm….something we might all want to ponder as we drive through holiday traffic or stand on long lines during this holiday season ……
