The "Christmas Countdown" has begun. There are only 3 weeks until Christmas break. This translates into a lot of work, excitement, and fun filled activities. Please see the Upcoming Events and Announcement sections on the Home page of our website for a schedule of these events.
With winter, comes mittens, touques, snow pants, etc. Please ensure that your child’s name is on their winter gear as many of the children have very similar things. It will help students keep track of their winter clothing as they are going out on break and coming back in. If your child’s belongings do get misplaced, please look in the Lost and Found box that is on the shelf above the coat racks in the foyer. If your child comes home with something that does not belong to them, please bring it back and place it in the Lost and Found box. Also the students need to have indoor footwear every day.
Thursday, December 19, is our last day of school before the Christmas break (December 20 to January 5). We will be having a Christmas party that afternoon and school will be dismissed at 3:00 p.m. The students return to school on January 6.
As you know, in an effort to encourage school spirit and team work, as well as have a lot of fun, we have divided the students into two teams. Our team challenges for the month of December are going to be during our Christmas party on December 19. Each student is encouraged to dress in “Christmas” fashion (no Santa Claus themes please) that day. Pictures and words on clothing will be acceptable and encouraged to see which team can foster the greater Christmas spirit. We will be having an organized pot luck hot lunch for our party. You will be contacted later to discuss how and what you can contribute to our Christmas dinner. Following our hot lunch, the students will be involved in a talent show as well as other activities in which their team will earn points that will help their teams to be declared the school champions.
Please note that we will be at the rink playing sneaker hockey and broomball for gym every Thursday in December and skating in January. Your children will need a helmet that fits properly, with a chin strap, to ensure safety if they fall. Please ensure that your children’s skates are sharpened for January. It is not easy to skate on dull skates.
Orders are quickly coming in for our “Christmas Bake Sale”. Please note the last day to place an order is Thursday, December 12 as the last orders are to go out on Wednesday, December 18. With this in mind, please bring in your orders as your receive them. Our bakers/packagers will not be able to accommodate a huge rush at the end.
We would like to invite you, your family and friends to Harvest Live Victory Church’s annual children’s Christmas Pageant held on Sunday, December 8 at 10:00 am as well as the Candle Light Service held on Sunday, December 24 at 7:00 pm. These are fun filled events that you don’t want to miss.
Please pray for the students and staff. We believe that God has greater and greater things in store for us as we progress through this school year. We know that each life that is a part of Lakeland Christian Academy is going to be changed as we press on in the things of God.
God bless you,
