Advent is here and the symbols of this holy season surround us. The Advent wreath is prominently displayed in our church as well as in our classroom. The next four weeks remind us that just as people in ages past, we too await the birth of Jesus.
On December 6th we will observe the feast day of Saint Nicholas. My students will put their shoes in the hallway in anticipation that Saint Nicholas might leave a special surprise for them.
On December 12th the kindergarteners will visit Edmonds Landing, The students will sing for the residence during their lunch hour. Afterwards, the seniors and the children will work together to make gingerbread houses.
On December 19th we will enjoy our very special Polar Express Day. The children will come to school in their pajamas and we will board our pretend train and head for the North Pole.
May this season of Advent bring you much peace and joy!
Mrs. Wachob
