Dear Parents and Guardians,
What a week we had at SLG!
Our week started with our annual Children’s Corner which was a huge success! A big thank you to Mrs. Dotzler and Mrs. Mannarino for providing this wonderful opportunity for our students to do some Christmas shopping for family and friends. They had a great time and thank you to all our parent volunteers for assisting with your time in making things go so smoothly.
Our Giving Tuesday was a successful day, and I would like to personally thank all of you that contributed to providing funds that will be used to enrich your children academically and socially with new programs and activities.
On Friday our 7th and 8th grade students participated in CBA’s Model UN competition and 4 of our delegates were recognized for best position paper and best delegate in their specific committees. Congratulations to our 8th graders Kelsey Roseland, Brady Johnson, Patrick Yurcisin, and Chase McManus on this achievement. They have been working diligently for the past several weeks preparing for this event with our moderators Mr. Laux and Mrs. Tommolino.
On Saturday was our Christmas Bazaar which hosted some vendors, great food, and fun activities for the kids including; cookie decorating with Mrs. Claus, a visit from Santa Claus and the Grinch! In addition, the raffle table had all of the “hottest” items and those young and old were able to take a chance at something! Everyone had a fantastic time despite the weather. A huge shout out to Mrs. Sciulla and Mrs. Dimino for the months of planning and preparing for this event. The school looked so festive and I know the students will enjoy your hardwork over the next couple of weeks. Thank you all who volunteered your time in providing our school with the Christmas spirit!
This week as we continue the Advent season, our students will be learning and contributing toward the “reason for the season.” On Thursday, December 8th we will be celebrating mass in recognition of the Immaculate Conception. Please join us at 9:00 AM to worship as a community. Additionally, our preschoolers will be having their conferences so please make sure you find time to discuss all the wonderful things your children are learning with their teacher. Our Christmas Dress Days will continue and the theme for this Friday, December 9th is Christmas Hats/Headbands. Students enjoyed wearing their Christmas socks and I look forward to seeing all the fun they are having.
I hope you have a blessed week!
