Getting in the Holiday Spirit!

This week we got together with our 6th grade buddies to make Christmas cards for members of our community who may be hospital bound or residing in a nursing home this holiday season.  Our buddies helped us to cut, glue and decorate cards that will be delivered by Mrs. Mossor.  Each card had a seasonal message and was signed by both the N2 and 6th grade students. 

In Physical Education we are working on stations. Each class period has several stations set up that the children rotate through.  Stations allow us a hands-on experience, play opportunity, and reinforces turn taking.  We have so much fun in PE!


Our Grandparents' Day celebration is next Thursday,  December 14th.  The show will take place in the school gym, beginning at 9:00 a.m. and ending around 10:00 a.m.  Since N2 will be signing two songs prior to the start of the Lower School Christmas Show and Nativity, the N2  parents are welcome to attend the show.  At the close of the show, grandparents and children will go to the cafeteria to enjoy brunch, if you wish to remain at school you are invited to relax in Mrs.  Fox-Tully's office with coffee and treats.  Per Mrs. Fox-Tully's email, please respond to Ms. Hough if you plan to stay for coffee. 

On Friday, December 15th, the students will have a pizza lunch. The cost of this lunch is $3.00.
If your child does not eat pizza, please pack him/her a lunch because cafeteria service will not be available on that day.
Each student must bring his/her own beverage, but the school will provide a dessert for lunch.     

Please complete the form that went home this week  and return it to school on or before Wednesday, December 13th. Please place the form with the $3.00 in an envelope marked with your child’s name, grade, and “PIZZA LUNCH.”
Lastly, we will be kicking of the holiday season with The HCA Family Christmas Liturgy this Sunday, December 10th at 10 a.m.  Mass will be held in the school gym followed by a milk and cookie reception.  Rumor has it there may be a special visitor!!  We hope to see your family there!

Have a great weekend!
Mrs. Devenney
