AND SHE BROUGHT FORTH HER FIRSTBORN SON, AND WRAPPED HIM IN SWADDLING

CLOTHES, AND LAID HIM IN A MANGER, BECAUSE

THERE WAS NO ROOM FOR THEM IN THE INN.  -LUKE 2:7

 

A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU! Our Thanksgiving luncheon was a great time of fun and fellowship for our students, staff, and faculty.  This was due in part to the participation of our wonderful parents who supplied us with food. We also want to thank all the parents and staff who helped in the kitchen serving, etc. We had such great support from parents and friends who helped to make this luncheon a great success! Thank you to everyone who had a part in helping to make this event for Mountain View a memorable one!

A NOTE FROM THE OFFICE:  TUITION AND ANY PAST DUE BALANCES MUST BE IN THE OFFICE BY DECEMBER 13TH — NO EXCEPTIONS. It is very important that all accounts be up-to-date before the Christmas break so we can close out the books for the end of the year.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact Mrs. Calvert.

PRE-SCHOOL CHRISTMAS PROGRAM – MONDAY, DECEMBER 9 – 9:00 A.M.  THE ELEMENTARY PROGRAM WILL IMMEDIATELY FOLLOW.

Cake:  Christmas Acts of Kindness Experiment:  It is finally Christmas break, and the kids are out of school! Now the real fun begins….except the teacher gave homework! But along the way, a group project becomes much more to a group of kinds than they could have ever imagined.  Join along as they embark on an exciting experiment that will change the way they experience Christmas forever.  God’s kindness proves God’s love for us and is at the root of every detail of The Christmas Story!

Don’t let this Christmas season overwhelm you.  Don’t feel you have to do everything, or go into debt just to impress other people.  Focus instead on Jesus.  Make this Christmas one of “exceedingly great joy.”  Excerpt from Hope for Each Day by Billy Graham
