Christmas Production- Dec 18th   6:00 pm


St Angela Merici Parish School is proud to present the ” A Christmas Carol” as a production for the parents.  This play is to allow our students to have the experience of theater arts and to share their talents with their peers and families.  The script has been read by a couple of staff members, including the administration.  The songs will include fun songs “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth” to “The First Noel”.  This will be
presented on Tuesday, December 18th at 6:00 pm in the church.  All students are involved with the production, but as always, is optional for the children.


Christmas Prayer Service   Dec. 20th   9:30 am



We also would like the parents to join us on Thursday, December 20th at 9:30 am to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.  All of our students will be participating in the story of the birth of our Jesus Christ with prayers, spiritual songs and celebration.  This is NOT optional for our students to attend due to it is part of the school day.  We highly encourage our parents to show for this celebration due to the majority of our parents do come
to school that day to celebrate Christmas parties.

We have a production and a prayer service this school year and are very excited about both days.

Halloween Costumes and Dress Policy:

Students may come to school dressed in a Halloween Costume.  Our school will be having our annual costume parade around the whole school led by our President and Vice President.

Students who wish to wear a costume must follow the school policies:

No full masks (due to safety reasons and making sure our little students are not afraid)

No weapons, appropriate female attire and every costume must have shoes.

All students will change into casual free dress after the parade and pictures.

If a student does not wish to wear a costume to school, they may either wear their school uniform or a Halloween shirt.

The parade starts around 8:15 in the morning and students will be outside for pictures and trick or treating.  The rest of the school day, the students will be playing in activities created by our own student council.

Our school will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week with a focus on “The Best Me is Drug Free”

  It is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against substance abuse.
