December 3rd-7th

This week, the students 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 was as bright as their rainbow outfits and we are so proud of them. Kindergarten also began learning about the most wonderful time of the year… our upcoming Liturgical season, Advent! We discussed that Advent is a time to prepare our hearts for Jesus’ birth by doing acts of service for others. The students even created their own Advent wreaths with four candles to represent each week of Advent. They will be colouring in a flame every week as they anticipate the birth of our Lord.
