- Basketball – practices are every Tuesday and Thursday through the 21st. There will be a basketball camp on January 4th-5th. More details will be available to the players once practices start. The cost for the camp will be $50. There are also two home basketball games on the calendar for Christmas break, January 6th and 7th.
- Christmas Party – we will be having a Christmas party on December 22nd during the second half of the school day. This will be a chance for some refreshments, games, and a gift exchange. Students should bring a $5-10 gift in order to participate in the exchange. Girls should buy gifts for girls, and boys for boys. Please let Pastor Lear know if you would like to volunteer to send in some refreshments for the party. We are also making this day a casual day for all students. There will be an ugly Christmas Sweater contest where the winner(s) will receive a prize!
- Christmas Break – we have a nice, extended Christmas break this year. The academic release days scheduled for the beginning of January will become part of the break, which means no school starting December 23rd and it will not resume until January 10th.
- Honor Roll – With the shortened second quarter due to days off for holidays, we want to extend the opportunity for students who are trying to get honor roll to take tests through the first week of school back from Christmas break. Although it will be the first week of the third quarter, there are many more days in the second half of the year, so we want to make sure that the students striving to attain honor roll can make it. When we have done this in the past, it has only affected a few students, but it was a big help to them.
If we don’t see you before, we hope and pray you have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year with your loved ones!
