Christmas gifts are an integral part of the season for which we are preparing. As our students prepare their hearts for Jesus’ birth during Advent, the practical preparations for Christmas also begin – including buying Christmas gifts. The giving of Christmas gifts reminds us of the three wise men who presented the Christ child with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
A special thanks to all parent volunteers especially Chelsea Ryan and Jordan Sakalian, who coordinated this year’s Santa Shop as well as the Roddy Family, Ryan Family, Sakalian Family, and Thewes family for their generous contributions. All of the academy students had the opportunity to do their Christmas shopping and even have their special presents gift-wrapped and delivered to their class! Jordan and Chelsea began organizing this project in September and it has proven to be a great success.
