Dear Parents,

Merry Christmas to each of you and your families! Here are a few reminders for the remainder of this week.

Christmas Programs: 
We are looking forward to the 1st and 2nd Grade Christmas performance tonight, December 13th, at 6:30pm in the Performing Arts Center @ SAR. Doors for the performance will open at 6pm for seating. Students must be on campus at 6pm and will meet in the cafeteria.

For family and friends that cannot make tonight’s performance, please note the video link for the performance HERE.

PK4 and K5’s Christmas Program is this Thursday, December 15th, at 10:30am in the Performing Arts Center @ SAR. Doors for the performance will open at 10am for seating. All students MUST be picked up at SAR after the program on 12/15 as there will not be a bus back to the NE campus.

What to wear: Students are to wear a Christmas outfit (i.e., Girls – Christmas dress or skirt with a red or green shirt; Boys – Khaki pants with a button-down shirt or Christmas sweater).

  • Half Days / Christmas Break: Please remember that beginning tomorrow, Wednesday December 14th, we will dismiss at 11:45am for the remainder of the week (December 14, 15 and 16). There will be no afternoon extended care on these last three days. The shuttle bus will run on the half-day schedule:

    All students return from Christmas Break on Wednesday, January 4th.

  • Christmas Camp: Calling all K5 through 4th graders for a “Crafts, Cooking and More”camp on December 19 & 20 at the SAR campus from 8:30-3:30. The cost is $80 per day or $150 for both days. Hurry to reserve your spot as space is limited.

Message from PTF:

  • Fruit of the Spirit Awards: Once a month a student from each class is selected for exemplifying the character trait of the month. We are asking for parent volunteers to supply a treat for the recipients of the Fruit of the Spirit awards. Please use the link below to volunteer if you are interested in helping. Thank you in advance for helping us to celebrate these students.!/showSignUp/4090f4ca5a923aafc1-fruit
