Christmas is Coming!
This is sure to be an exciting time in Religion class. We have many fun things to look forward to as we await the celebration of the birth of Jesus...

6th grade: We will continue to create and share our Jesse tree ornament. So far, we have had an absolute blast making these ornaments. It is so fun to have the students share their crafty side and teach the class about the Old Testament. Huge thanks to to Faye and Renee O'Neill for sewing our actual "Jesse Trees".  We will learn all about advent as we continue with a few more "sessions" this month.

7th grade: We will continue to deepen our understanding of the life of Jesus as we reflect on his birth and the season of advent. We will be making newsletters about "The Coming of Christ" to share with our little buddies. We will also explore the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12.

8th grade: We will be performing a short version of The Nativity for the lower grades right before the break begins. We will also create drawings of common Christmas symbols and include the Catholic meanings behind these symbols to display and remind others about the true meaning of Christmas.

Let's start off this 2nd trimester with clarity of expectations and refreshed determination to demonstrate our very best in all subjects.
