Well, the upcoming two weeks are sure to be a blast with the Christmas Program, Service Missions, plus all the usual lessons! With all of this to keep us busy, it is imperative that your child remains focused through to the end. We have a lot to get done in these two weeks!
Christmas Concert News
We are just one week away from sharing our Christmas Musical – “The Light Before Christmas”. As students prepare to choose their Christmas attire for the performance, we once again would like to remind parents about the dress code request – RED, WHITE, BLACK, or SILVER chapel wear. This does exclude khakis for the boys, and girls are reminded to double check those skirt lengths! Students are also encouraged to take their sunglasses to their classroom teacher early next week. They will be labelled and kept in the classrooms until after Friday’s performances. The afternoon performance will begin at 1:30 pm, with a second performance commencing at 6:30 pm. Students are asked to return to their classrooms by 6:00 pm in order to line up and complete any final preparations. It is our prayer that you will be blessed by the sharing of the story of Jesus and the story of light!
Christmas Service Project
At Grace Christian School it is our hope that students will recognize how God uses his children to bless others, and that it truly is better to give than to receive. What a better time than the holiday season to share the love of Jesus with others in our community? So, that is exactly what we plan to! Students from Grades 1-6 will be travelling to Beach Grove Nursing Home & Andrews of Stratford to deliver their Christmas Musical on Thursday, December 18th. More details will be sent home next week, in addition to a permission slip.
