DECEMBER



December Dates and Events are listed on the school website:   https://www.saintbernardgb.com/events/

December is truly a tribute to Mary, Mother of God. Mary has two special days this month, December 8th which is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and December 12th which is the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas. 

Today is December 8th, hopefully you had the chance to participate in Mass this weekend in honor of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. In other parts of the world, this special day is celebrated with candlelight vigils and processions with floats dedicated to Our Lady. On Thursday, December 12th we will celebrate Mass in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas. This is another special day in which celebrations vary depending on which part of the world it is celebrated. 


Please join us for Mass this Thursday at 8:45 am in lieu of our regular Friday Mass. 

In Christ,
Mrs. Blahnik

GO BEARS!

 
DRESS WARM IN COLD WEATHER
Students should be coming with a warm coat, hat and mittens/gloves now that the weather is getting colder.

WHEN SNOW IS ON THE GROUND
Once the snow is on the ground, students PK-5 MUST have boots, snow pants, jackets, gloves, and hats to play at recess. 
SCHOOL-WIDE ADVENT PROJECT
We are encouraging students to earn these items at home by pitching in a little extra around the house. Maybe students can earn the items by doing something nice for someone else in the home without being asked, or by doing extra jobs to earn a few dollars in change to purchase their reverse Advent Collection item.
❄️December Monthly Collection❄️
This year we are going to be participating in a reverse advent calendar. Rather than treating ourselves each day leading up to Christmas, we are going to give a little to those in need.
Each classroom will be collecting one specific item to bring in on a particular day. This information is listed on the photo.
Our goal is to create 20 care packages for current SBS families who could use a little extra joy during the holidays.
Thank you in advance to all who donate! It will be exciting to see our collection grow each day as Christmas draws near!
