THE PASSPORT 11.13.17
During the month of November, our Character Counts trait to focus on is “thankfulness”. We ask all of our community to embrace the theme and be “Doers” this month by helping with the parish food drive. Can your family give some Thanksgiving “side” dishes for local families that are less fortunate than we are? Please bring them by Friday to the school or drop them by the rectory early next week. Happy Thanksgiving!
Our Veterans’ Day tribute flag will remain on display through the end of this week, so please feel free to add names or photos to it.
This year, we are planning our 2nd annual outdoor Christmas Festival instead of our traditional Christmas program in the auditorium. The festival will take place on Thursday, December 14th from 6-8pm. It will include a live nativity, performances by the students, caroling, food, snow and sledding, Santa, and lots of activities for the kids and holiday cheer for our community! Mark your calendars !
