Dear Parents and Guardians,
Thank you to all who joined us for our Family Mass at St. Mary’s this past Sunday. I greatly appreciate your participation in our gathering as a school community. Thank you to our students who showed their school pride in their uniforms. Thank you to Mrs. Walters, Mrs. Bullock and the 5th-grade students for preparing the Mass. Thank you to Mr. Mason and our school choir for helping us celebrate the Eucharist with song.
Tonight is our Christmas Program at Temple College. Students should arrive at 5:45. Please make sure that your child finds his or her teacher and checks in. The program will begin at 6:30. Following the performance students will be dismissed by grade from the stage, beginning with Kindergarten. Pre-K students will be dismissed to their parents after they perform their songs.
Elementary Students (Pre-K - 5th): Girls will wear white shirts with either skirts or pants in their Christmas color of choice (green, red, gold, or silver), and dress shoes. Boys will wear white shirts and slacks in their Christmas color of choice (green, red, gold, or silver) or dark slacks, Christmas colored shirt and tie. Both boys and girls will wear a tinsel garland that will be provided for them.
Middle School Students: Boys will wear their Sunday best in the Christmas colors of their choice (green, red, gold, or silver), or dark slacks, Christmas colored shirt and tie and dress shoes. Girls will wear Sunday best (either skirts to the knee, or slacks) in the Christmas colors of their choice (green, red, gold, or silver), and dress shoes.
Have you picked up your Giving Tree ornament yet? There are quite a few still on the tree outside the office. Each ornament has written upon it the details of the Christmas wishes of a person in our community who is less fortunate.
If you would like to help one of these people, simply take an ornament, record with Ms. Morales or Mrs. Brown which ornament you have selected, and bring a wrapped gift back to school by Dec. 16th, using the ideas on the ornament. Attach the ornament to the wrapped gift so it can be given to the correct person. If you bring more than one gift please put them together in a bag or write the name on the second gift. If you have questions please ask.
On Friday, December 16th we will carry on the tradition of Sunday Best dress on the last day of school before Christmas vacation. This is a special dress-up day for the students and we are looking forward to it. Please make sure your students follow the guidelines set up for this day.

*Dress pants a with a nice blouse or sweater (no jeans or t-shirts)
* Nice shoes may be worn. Please, no heels or open toes. Boots are fine as long as the heals are not high. School shoes are acceptable but no non-uniform tennis shoes please.

Congratulations to Ms. Saaty and out Student Council for holding Kid’s Night In last Friday night. The evening was very successful and the kids had a ball playing games and hanging out with friends. I have no doubt this will become a Christmas tradition for the Student Council and school community.
Have a wonderful week.
