    Yesterday marked the first day of Advent, a time of preparation of the coming of Christ.  In class today we secretly chose our Advent Pals.  Each student chose the name of another classmate or myself as their Advent Pal for the next 3 weeks.  We will be completing projects/activities in class during this time for our Advent Pal.  On December 20 we will have a class celebration during which we will reveal our Advent Pal to each other.  During this celebration students will exchange a small gift with each other.  These gifts can be handmade or store bought, costing no more than $5.00.  Please send the gift to school with only the Advent Pal name labeled by Wednesday December 18.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by note or email.


    Tomorrow December 3 is our class field trip to the Verdin Bell Company, the Peace Bell in Newport and the Cathedral Basilica in Covington.  Students must have their permission slips returned by TOMORROW morning in order to participate.  
Each student will need to PACK their lunch for this field trip.  Before our visit at the Cathedral Basilica, we will be eating lunch in the Covington Latin School cafeteria.

Currently I have 3 drivers for this field trip, but am in need of additional drivers.  Please let me know by email tonight if you are able to drive and attend with us.
