CONTRIBUTE TO THE TEACHER CHRISTMAS GIFT FUND
St. Benedict’s is blessed with very talented, dedicated, and loving teachers and staff. We know there are times of the year that many parents wish to express thanks and appreciation. While this is certainly understandable, and appreciated, St. Benedict’s Episcopal School encourages all families to direct their gifts to the Parent Association Teacher Appreciation Fund.
DECEMBER CHAPEL FESTIVITIES
Along with all things Advent, Christmas, Hanukkah, and December, Chapel at St. Benedict's this month is also a special time in the life of our community. Parties, concerts, and celebrations are abundant during this time, and as your chaplain it's my hope that we can also set aside time for reflection, prayer, and worship. Please make special note of the following important chapel dates and times in the coming weeks:
3's, PK-4's, and Kindergarten:
Your weekly Wednesday Chapels remain the same! Family and friends are always welcome to join us at 9:15 for this special, short service in the Nave. Please keep an eye out in your newsletters for your child's turn to be a Chapel Leader with us.
