December 15th School Newsletter

Our Christmas music program is tomorrow night at 6:30pm. The program is called “A New Heart” and students have been working really hard preparing. Please do not arrive at the church prior to 6:10pm. A letter from Mrs. Johnson went home digitally and with students about the program. If you have questions please email ojohnson@holyfamilyclarkston.com

 

Holy Family School has a generous staff. Instead of participating in a staff gift exchange, the staff donated $250 to the Asotin County Food Bank. 

 

Our Choir will be singing at Austen Manor on Wednesday. Students are excited to spread Christmas Cheer in our community!

 

This Advent, each class participated in our first annual Advent door decorating competition. Father Root and Sharon Clizer from the parish office judged the doors. The winning door was Kindergarten- Carol Ingram, 2nd place was 6th grade-Sheri Gehring and third place was PK-Sophia Henry. The Kindergarten class earned a trophy for the month. We have a very special trophy! It is the Holy Family. Thank you to all the teachers and parents for creating such wonderful doors.
