Second Week of Advent

Join Assistant Principal Kelley, Mrs. Tsagalakis, and second-grader, Easton C., in the lighting of the second candle of  Advent.  Like our 2020 school theme, the Second Week of Advent calls us to action.  We are reminded that Jesus brings the light of service into our lives.  We must strive to be good and do good.

One of the many ways our students act for the common good is by supporting a global “classmate” through the Unbound Program.  Each grade level has a sponsored student, and periodically throughout the school year, a financial collection is taken to support that child’s education, nutrition, and healthcare.  Meet your child’s Unbound classmate and learn how your child can support them by becoming an Elf-in-Training, dropping off your donation at lunch pick-up, giving it to your teacher (for on campus learners), or by donating directly to the school collection for Unbound.

St. John Parish offers the Advent 2020 Calendar as a resource to help you deepen your family traditions.  Information about the history of the Advent Wreath and Advent prayers is available here.
