Thank you for all your kind words, prayers, and gifts. I truly am blessed with such a loving school family.

Advent Pals

You probably are already aware that we have chosen our Advent Pals.  The students have been asked to do kind deeds for their pal and each other.  They have also been asked to pray for their pal.  We also will be making a few items for each other.

Week 1:  Advent Pal Acrostic.  Students are to write an acrostic poem for their Advent pal.  They are to write or type their advent pal's name on a paper and for each letter in their name, they are to write a short phrase describing that person.  Example:  TOM  Talks to me as a friend, Outstanding at math, Makes me laugh when I'm sad.

Week 2:  Advent Pal Blessing.  I will be sending home an index card for each student to design a blessing/card for their pal.  We will talk about the types of blessings they can write.  Example:  I bless you with good health and a loving family this Advent.

Week 3:  Advent Pal Gift.  This can be homemade or store bought.  Please do not spend more than $5 on your Pal.  The focus isn't on "big" gifts, but the gift of giving.  We will exchange gifts on Friday the 19th at our Advent party.  More info will be sent later.
