Christmas at Sussex Christian School
When the calendar turns to December, our thoughts all turn to Christmas. The staff and students of Sussex Christian School are no different! Christmas crafts and decorations become part of the climate through the December days. A few focused events and activities have been part of this month.
Bring a Friend Day: SCS held its second Bring a Friend Day on Friday November 29th. A non-student day in the local public schools gave SCS students the opportunity to invite their friends to see what a day at Sussex Christian School might be like. Fifty-two student guests joined us for the day, which included an entire student-body chapel, where the Principal, Marsha Boyd-Mitchell shared a Christmas message to start off the season.
Salvation Army Christmas Gifts: For the fourth year, SCS has partnered with the Salvation Army to help needy families at Christmas. This year, Sussex Christian School families provided Christmas gifts for 46 needy children in the Sussex area. These toys and gifts will be part of the Christmas boxes that the Salvation Army prepares this time of year for families in the community who are struggling financially.
A Charlie Brown Christmas: On December 5th, students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 presented the classic Charlie Brown Christmas. Probably we all have the tendency to get distracted by the things that Charlie Brown and his friends do at Christmas. What a great way to enter the Christmas season as Linus reminds us all of the real meaning of Christmas, “…And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord appeared…” Thanks to Mrs. Vall MacCallum and Mrs. Andrea Sabean for directing this program!
Santa Claus Parade: High school students, under the direction of Miss Emily Cormier and Mrs. Marissa Morton, prepared a float for the annual Sussex Santa Claus Parade on December 7th. The Grinch (Riley Nice) and his trusty dog, Max (Eric Huggard) along with a number of the residents of Whoville greeted those from the community along the parade route with treats and smiling faces.
Twelve Days of Christmas: Since December 5th, the school’s Spirit Club has been weaving some special and fun elements into each of the twelve school days leading up to Christmas Break. Colouring contests, lunch time activities, dress-up days, and special treats have all been included.
Christmas Chapel: 2013 is wrapping up at SCS this week. The Christmas Chapel for the entire student body will be this Wednesday the 18th with a number of students participating in worship and a skit. Our speaker will be Mr. Kerry Allison, missionary to the Ukraine, who will be sharing his vision about the work at Hope House there, and will help kick off our next missions project; to furnish a double bedroom for the new Hope House 2.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL
