Middle School Newsletter: December 2018
As I write this letter we are in the final stretch of the first semester. That means your child’s 7th or 8th grade year will soon be half over and for some high school is just around the corner. How did that happen! I am grateful everyday to have the opportunity to support this committed group of teachers who faithfully strive to make the middle school experience a positive one for your child as they live in the moment while preparing them for the future. Thank you for trusting us to walk alongside of you and support you as you walk the path of raising this amazing gift from God, your child.
During this season of Advent as we remember and celebrate the most precious gift ever given, God’s Son, Emmanuel, God with us, we pray that you find the time to quietly and prayerfully remember the gift of the Christ Child as we expectantly wait for the Messiah to come again.
O come, O come, Emmanuel.
Wishing you and yours a very blessed Christmas!
