I will be saying merry Christmas in a more formal fashion as the date approaches, so I wanted to share a couple of thank you's instead this week.
Thank you to all of the parents, who in the midst of increasingly hectic weeks leading up to Christmas, supported our students by donating time, treasure, or talent to the all of the amazing activities. Your gifts and sacrifices are never unnoticed.
Thank you to all of the students who prepared and participated in our traditional Advent events including Lessons and Carols, the Garden Christmas Pageant, baby items drive, and the Re-Purpurse drive. You are always loved for who you are not just what you do, but when you embrace the call to virtue and holiness, all of our lives are enriched and inspired.
Thank you to all of faculty who have sacrificed some sanity to embrace the spirit of the season. Your impact reaches into eternity, and I am personally always aware of how seriously you embrace the call to not only teach, but proclaim Christ to our students.
And because I know it is on the radar - no pun intended - I will do my best to make a decision on Thursday evening about Friday to determine the status of school. These storms aren't fun to predict, but I understand how it helps families to plan accordingly. If I can't by Thursday and the weather pattern changes, I will eagerly await Ray Brewer's weather reporting on the roadside at 5:00 a.m. on Friday to make a decision by 5:30 a.m. We only notify if there is a delay or cancellation.
Yours Truly In Christ,
