I can’t believe that our Christmas break is starting next week already. I hope that you had an opportunity to join us for the Christmas program this week. The children did a wonderful job of displaying the gifts and talents that God gave them through singing, instrumental music, and acting out the arrival of baby Jesus. The program was truly about the greatest news on earth. The arrival of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Our school schedule for next week will be regular school hours on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. On Thursday, December 22nd we will have an early dismissal. The elementary school will dismiss at 11:30 and the middle school at 11:45 (Please note: the C.A.R.E.S. program will NOT be available on Thursday). We are due to return from Christmas break on Tuesday, January 3rd for a full day of school.
With the winter season upon us, sometimes it is necessary to delay the opening of school or to close the school for the day because of the weather. Saint Joseph School will make necessary weather announcements on our School website (www.sjshanover.org); Facebook, and through the REMIND app system and also on our local television stations (WGAL-TV Channel 8; FOX 43-TV and WHTM-TV (ABC 27). Please note: If needed – we have a Snow make-up day scheduled for Monday, January 2nd if we are closed any day next week for adverse weather.
On behalf of the Faculty and Staff of Saint Joseph School, I wish you a Very Merry Christmas, and a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year!
