This week we were working on a lot of Advent. We had our service Wednesday. We also started the primarily rounds of the Geography Bee and finished up our Christmas art project this week. On Friday we finished up the walk-a-thon by tying blankets for Friends Of Kids With Cancer.
From Mrs. R.
What a thrill it was to hear your kids share the message of our Savior this week, through song, drama, and art! Thank you for getting kids to the service and all your help behind the scenes with learning songs/parts. In Christ we Stand and serve a Savior who loves us so much that he put aside heaven to live with us, be our friend, and rescue us from sin. I pray the service gave you a new perspective on the Advent season and the special days ahead.

Christmas ArtStudents worked hard all month on our Christmas canvas projects. Stop by the halls of the main building between noon on Tuesday and Wednesday 8:00 a.m. to see the Jr. High Christmas display.
In art the rest of the month, one project will be inspired by the art of an American classic, Norman Rockwell, and the other will explore positive and negative space.
