WHY WE WE FOCUS ON JESUS' BIRTHDAY AND DON'T CELEBRATE SANTA . . . . .
As we celebrate the Christmas season, we are excited about all the fun things that we have planned surrounding the celebration of Jesus' birthday! Make sure that you note all of the various classroom and all school activities that we have designed to help ourselves and your children focus on the real meaning of the season. As with other holiday celebrations, we are committed to having children experience Christian and biblical principles around the holidays and we encourage ourselves and you to experience the Lord in special ways around this holiday. Because of this we have developed a few guidelines for us as a school that we believe help to do that. These include such things as not talking about or focusing on secular traditions of Christmas such as Santa Claus, Frosty, etc. We try to talk about gift giving rather than focusing on receiving, and we spend a lot of time talking about both the Old and New Testament scriptures surrounding the birth of Christ. As usual, we are not trying to set guidelines for your family to practice at home, rather practices that we believe are important for us as a Christian school. For example, if your child talks about Santa, etc. we will not tell them in any way that is wrong, but rather encourage discussion back to Christ and His birth. We are excited to be able to share the holidays with your family. We trust it will be a blessed time!
