....... CCDS INFORMER
Mrs. Roberts - Headmistress

 

Dear CCDS Families,

Welcome to the last week of school for 2009!
It is a wonderful week of preparation in many ways. In
chapel and in classrooms, children have been learning
about the meaning of Advent and the gifts we can offer
that do not need batteries or fall out of popularity.

The Christmas Program, Miracle on Orange Avenue,
will be presented at 6:00 on Tuesday night (children
are to arrive at 5:45). Mrs. Moody and the children
are very excited about this program. Parents who are new to CCDS this year are
in for a wonderful surprise. From the 6th graders who have the speaking parts
to the kindergarten and Junior Kindergarten kids who will steal your hearts away,
I promise you will love the show and be so proud of our CCDS students.

On Thursday, students will arrive in party clothes. (This is the day to wash
and mend those sweaters for Closing Chapel.) First, we will prepare for closing
Christmas Chapel. Next, the students and staff will feel very honored to attend
the Christmas Luncheon hosted by the 5th grade parents.
Finally, we will process
to Church where Father Edward will read the real story of Christmas accompanied
by illustrations depicting the story through great art that spans the centuries.
Before the 1:00 dismissal, Mrs. Moody will lead us in singing Christmas carols.

On Friday morning, Closing Chapel will begin at 8:15. Children are to arrive
in dress uniform, including dress shoes at the normal time, 7:55. I encourage
all parents to attend, not only because dismissal for Christmas vacation is
immediately after (about 8:30), but more importantly because the service
is beautiful. During the service, Father Edward will share a few thoughts with us.
The children will be singing Silent Night holding candles. The glow of candlelight
represents the light of Christ spreading His love among us. It is a beautiful way
to begin the holidays.

So in this time of preparation, amidst the inevitable hustle and bustle of the
holidays, I wish us quiet moments. I wish us moments to reflect on the
importance of the Christ Child. I wish us moments to savor the joys, as well
as the responsibilities, children bring into our lives. I wish us all peaceful
moments and time to ponder our hopes and dreams for our children and
their futures. Merry Christmas!

Nancy Roberts
Headmistress

.......... CCDS Mission Statement

The Educational Mission of
Christ Episcopal Church is
predicated on Anglican
Theologians of The 17th
Century who suggested that
human reason offers a tool to
interpret scriptures and to
wrestle with the most difficult
issues of humanity. It is our
desire to establish a learning
environment that fosters the
development of reason and
critical thinking skills to serve
in the exploration of the deepest
issues of humanity and to better
understand our responsibilities
as individuals for the well-being
of society. It is an environment
founded on the love of God and
the love of our fellow human beings.
