Good Evening BEARS Families and Friends,
The last three weeks have represented for many the period of waiting for the birth of Christ.  It is a period of anticipation, of seeking light, of responding to our call to care for others less fortunate. During the past number of weeks there have been many activities at out school to both prepare for Christmas and to reach out to those in need. We demonstrate who we are as a faith community through these activities. These are the true gifts that make the difference in the life of someone else. Thank you to all for what you do. Thank you too for your continued support of our learners.   Over the next week please take the time to be with your loved ones. May you have a joyous Christmas.

The St. Bernadette Lost and Found will be on display in the foyer this week.   We have many items that need to be claimed.  There are hats, mitts, shoes, sweaters, pants, water bottles, etc., etc., etc.  All items will be on display until the Christmas break.   Please take some time to come in and claim any missing items.

We are busy putting the finishing touches on our Christmas Concert 2018.  Our concert is Thursday December 20th  at 1:00 p.m. in the gym.  We ask that you arrive early since seating may be limited.  Doors will open at 12:30 p.m. We also kindly ask if you will be attending that you stay for the entire show and not leave early so we are not interrupting the concert.   Our students have been practicing diligently and are very excited to perform for our community.  We look forward to seeing you for this special event
