*Preparing for Christmas

Preparing for the Christmas season is a very busy time for most folks. During Advent the preparations are everywhere.  Busy moms are cooking and baking, sales clerks are working late and letter carriers are swamped. Churches are getting ready to move from purple vestments to white. Preparations at Valle Catholic are the same.

Advent/Christmas activities at Valle Catholic include:

**Each building began every Monday of Advent with prayer and lighting the Advent Wreath

 **2nd Grader Cecilia Meyer (daughter of Mike & Kaci Meyer) took a turn ringing the Salvation Army bell.
​**Celebrated St. Nicholas Day​ with stories, stockings and candy canes.
**Visits with Santa, Mrs. Claus and some elves:  Grade School Student Council visited PreK, K, and 1st Graders. 
**4th & 5th Graders worked hard during 

Advent to give the Grinch a heart by Christmas by doing good deeds. 

**Elf on the Shelf 

*Kindergarten students in Mrs. Amy Wood’s class presented a Christmas Nativity Play for the grade school classes.

*High School and middle school students did the traditional “12 Days of Christmas“. High School students held Breakfast with Santa.

 **Christmas Concert Grades 6-12 
 **Band director, Mr. Shane Verges played Christmas carols for students each morning before school.  The band also performed carols during lunch. 
Merry Christmas from all of us at Valle Catholic Schools.
