From the Desk of the Prinicpal


GHappy New Year! This week we start a new liturgical year. What does that mean? The "church year" begins with Advent each year. During Advent, we focus on the next coming of Christ. You will see a great number of verses from Revelation. Advent culminates with Christmas. It is a reminder of the coming of Christ to fulfill the prophesies of the Messiah.

For schools, this is an incredibly busy time. Factor in curriculum and then top it off with Christmas programs with a helping of overly excited (and distracted) students on the side, and for teachers it feels like we are pulling plow behind us. It is great to be at a school where we can openly share the JOY of Christmas every day!

Oh, and for you that have been asking.... The JOY sign goes up this weekend!

In Christ,
Mr. Manning
