This Sunday we celebrate the Second Sunday of Advent – a time of preparation for the coming of our Lord on Christmas. Advent always starts four Sundays before Christmas. This year, Christmas will be on a Sunday resulting in four full weeks of Advent. With all of the hustle and bustle that accompanies Christmas, spiritual preparation may easily get lost. This week our second grade class started sharing the story of the coming of Jesus at hall prayer. I love watching the children build the nativity, and it reminds me of why I love being apart of this school.

I would like to thank everyone who worked and purchased books at the Book Fair. Reading is so important to our children. I was reading recently that Finland always rank at the top in children’s literacy worldwide because they READ. They tell stories, and libraries are a very important part of their lives. You want your children to test better? Read to them. Tell them stories. Let them pick out books from bookstores or the library!
