DECEMBER 13TH – CHRISTMAS CONCERT
St. Bernadette School Annual Christmas Concert will be held on Thursday December 13th immediately following the Lights of Hope Ceremony. Students are asked to be at the school no later then 6pm and are invited into the parish hall for cookies and hot chocolate. At around 6:05pm everyone is invited to the courtyard where Fr. Paul will bless the lights and they will be turned on for the first time this year.
Immediately following the ceremony, students will head to the classroom to meet their teacher and parents & guests are welcome to enter into the church to find their seat. We ask parents to remind their guests that although we are in the church to watch a performance, we are still in a place of worship and proper etiquette applies.
The Stingers Club will be available on Friday, December 21st from 12:00pm to 6:00pm, please contact Sheila at firstname.lastname@example.org to advise her if you will be needing Stingers Club. For those who are already registered there is an extra $10.00 fee.

We are asking for all school families to please donate items & participate in this very special fundraiser. Please drop off items to the Grade 6 classroom as soon as possible.
FAMILY CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS
This Christmas season we at St. Bernadette are excited to start a new tradition.
We are inviting all families in the school to bring in a Christmas ornament (bought or handmade) with your family name and the year your family started at St. Bernadette written on it. Families who wish to participate can drop off their ornament to the office anytime. We will start placing the ornaments on the tree starting the first week of December.
The Family Tree will be located in the alcove between the learning commons and the gym. All ornaments brought in will be displayed every year.
We look forward to seeing all the ornaments and recognizing all the wonderful families we have in our community!
