Advent is the time that the Church designates for the preparation of
Christmas. We reflect on the “true reason for the season” and get
ready for the birth of our Lord. Last night’s Lower School Special
Arts Christmas Program certainly gave everyone in the audience the
“message” about the miracle of the birth of Jesus. We are proud of
not only the talents of our Movement, Chorus and Drama students in
grades 1-4, but we are most grateful to these children for delivering
the “true message of Christmas” with their singing, dancing and
acting. We extend our congratulations and appreciation for their
teachers, Mrs. Metzler and Mrs. Santiago, who directed such fantastic
and spiritually moving performances.
This weekend and next week, our concert band (grades 5-8) gets their
opportunity to share their talents with the various audiences they
will have. On Saturday, they are the entertainment for the
Charleston Yacht Club Children’s Christmas Party. On Sunday, they
will perform at Second Sunday on King Street from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
at the corner of Beaufain and King streets, next to the Daughters of
St. Paul bookstore. They can showcase their skills for the
Charleston community. Then, next Thursday, December 17, both the
Beginner Band and Concert Band will perform their Christmas concerts
at CCS beginning at 6:30 p.m. We look forward to these performances
under the direction of our band teacher, Mrs. Draftz.
Next week will be exams for our 8th grade class, Monday through
Thursday. On Friday, we will have our schoolwide spelling bee before
we conclude the day with early dismissal at 11:15 a.m. for the
Yours in Christ,
Father in heaven, our hearts desire the warmth of your love and our
minds are searching for the light of your Word. Increase our longing
for Christ – http://www.catholic.org/clife/jesus our Savior
and give us the strength – http://www.catholic.org/prayers/prayer.php?p=2917
to grow in love, that the dawn of his coming may find us rejoicing
in his presence and welcoming the light of his truth. We ask this in
the name of Jesus – http://www.catholic.org/clife/jesus the Lord.

The Charleston Catholic School educates a socially diverse student
body in a nurturing family environment within the sacred tradition
and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Teachers challenge the
students to discover their own unique gifts through creative inquiry
and critical thinking in the core academic subjects and the arts.
Our small, loving environment enables students to learn self
discipline through responsible decision-making and to develop a sense
of compassion for others.
