“Today in the town of David, a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”
The children had a busy and exciting month of December. They practiced for the combined Montessori, Elementary and French School concert that began at 6 in the evening on Dec. 9th, Friday. The Montessori children opened the program on the stage of the Saint Maur Fine Arts auditorium, singing “Mary’s Little Boy Child” and “Jingle Bell Rock” in front of a full house, gaining valuable experience while sharing the joy of Chirstmas.
The children also enjoyed a pizza luncheon.
For this season of gift-giving, as when the three kings brought incense, Frankincense and myrrh to baby Jesus, the children learned how to give cards and presents, how to receive them, and what to say to each other in the exchange of gifts and written Season’s Greetings. They also discovered how to hold the present with both hands, practiced looking into the person’s eyes, and express simple phrases such as “Merry Christmas. This is for you” and “Thank you, (actual name). Merry Christmas”—all with a smile.
Please have a memorable, fun-filled, and meaningful Christmas holidays with the family, your relatives and dear friends. We look forward to a great second semester in 2017, which will be in the Year of the Rooster. Merry Christmas to you, one and all!
