Kindergarten

November 29-December 3

This week, Kindergarten celebrated Christ the King! The children learned that Jesus is not only the ruler of their hearts but everyone’s hearts and that he watches over the entire universe. Now, as we enter the season of Advent, the students will begin preparing their hearts for the coming of our Saviour’s birth and will come to understand the true meaning of Christmas. May God bless you and your families abundantly this Advent Season!
