Dear St. Jane Frances de Chantal Community,
Good morning and happy 2nd Sunday of Advent! This week’s readings focus is on peace – we are called to pray for it in our families, our workplace and in everywhere we walk.
Looking ahead, here is what is coming up:·We are excited to welcome students and families back tomorrow. School is in session Monday.
· ACRE testing & Onward Readers testing continues this week. Both assessments help to inform the teachers on what they focus on in religion and in reading.
·The school’s Advent prayer service continues during the Mondays in Advent. You are welcome to join us for morning prayer & announcements.
· Santa’s Workshop is extended for this Monday & Tuesday.
·We need a dozen Dads to volunteer for a project this December. Please see Mrs. Whited for more details.
