The student-led worship service of scripture lessons, carols, and candlelight held on Tuesday, December 3 was a truly beautiful remembrance of Christ's birth. We are grateful for the student liturgists who shared the lessons, our talented choir and musicians who presented the carols, and the students on the tech team who coordinated the sound and video. Afterwards, students shared a meal together and exchanged gifts, complete with Santa and his elves!
On Monday, December 2, twelve new members were inducted into the John A. Mackay Chapter of the National Honor Society. These students were selected by their teachers as those who most uphold the ideals of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. During the ceremony, inductees were presented with a yellow rose from current members of the chapter. Congratulations to these well-rounded students!
This Giving Tuesday, we are seeking $6,000 to give our second activity bus a much-needed “facelift.” All donations collected TODAY, Tuesday, December 3, will offset this maintenance expense and free up resources from our budget for our biggest priority – scholarship funds for our students. Won't you help?
