December 2nd-6th

This week, Kindergarten continued preparing for their Advent Assembly and did a lovely job leading the prayer service with their Grade 6 buddies this morning. They were definitely awake and ready to sing Stay Awake, Be Ready for the school! Thank you, parents, for practicing the song with them at home. We look forward to staying awake and being ready for our Saviour’s birth as we enter the Advent season.

Also this week, the children worked very hard to learn a hip-hop dance routine and did a fabulous job sharing their new dance skills at this afternoon’s performance. Their dancing looked as sharp as their senior citizen attire and we are so proud of them!
