Advent Begins

Advent - Week One
This week our Advent focus is on hope. We have started our Road To Bethlehem unit in religion and will be learning about how to prepare ourselves for the birth of Jesus. Please take the time to ask your child what they have been learning about the season of Advent. A good question for tonight would be about the Angel Gabriel. Who did the Angel Gabriel visit and what was his message?

Advent - Week Two
This week our Advent focus is on peace. Children are encouraged to think of ways that they can create peace in their hearts, in the classroom and on the school yard as they prepare themselves for Jesus' birth. We are continuing to bring in canned food for the Stittsville Food Bank and winter socks packed with toiletries for the Ottawa Mission.
