Shed Some Light for December 3, 2016

YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

During the season of Advent, the students meet each week for an Advent Prayer Service to prepare for the coming of Jesus at Christmas time.  Our theme this year is “You are the Light of the World.” The students are living this idea by showing love to others through acts of kindness and compassion.  Throughout these four weeks, take a moment to reflect how you can be the light for someone during a time of darkness.

ANNUAL FOOD DRIVE IS A SUCCESS

The Christ Our Savior Student Council along with St. Jude the Apostle Parish sponsored our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive in the days prior to Thanksgiving.  We are grateful to all COS families and staff who generously donated can goods and nonperishable items to those most in need in our area. We collected items to help the Parish make up 125 food baskets.  Grade 5 collected the most items per student.  Well done, COS students!

BOOK FAIR, MUSIC CONCERT AND CHRISTMAS RAFFLE

The Scholastic Book Fair will be at Christ Our Savior Catholic School the week of December 12.  Please feel free to stop in during the week and do some Christmas shopping. The best gift you can give a child is the love of literature!  Share this gift with a youngster.  The Book Fair will also be open before and after our Christmas Music Concert on Wednesday, December 14.  The concert will begin at 7:00 P.M. in the Gym. ALL ARE WELCOME to attend. Would you like the opportunity to win a little extra cash just in time for Christmas?  Then stop by the school office and pick up a 5/12 raffle ticket ….or two… (12 prizes- $5 per ticket).   Raffle prizes are as follows:  1st prize – $1,000; 2nd Prize – $250; Prizes 3 thru 12 – $100 each. The drawing will take place on Wednesday, December 14 after our Christmas Concert.  Winner need not be present. Thank you for your loyal support!

In Christ’s Love,
