Principal's Corner

Dear St. Clare families and friends,

Happy Advent!  During this season of patient waiting and joyful hope, we look forward to several events that bring us closer to the bright promise of Jesus’ birth!

We begin the season with our Advent Reconciliation Service for grades 2-8 on December 6. In addition to our regular Thursday Masses, our Student Council will lead us in a special Advent Prayer Service on December 18.

Our students look forward to reaching out to those in need during Advent. As well as a few extra food drives for St. Vincent de Paul, the entire school is participating in The Great Toy Drive sponsored by KGW.

Of course, the season wouldn’t be complete without some fun traditions that we look forward to every year. These include a visit from St. Nicholas, class parties, Advent Angel gift exchanges, and our annual Christmas program which will be held on December 17 with a reception following.

At school during this busy season, we find quiet time to ask God to help us prepare for the coming of His son. 

Wishing you peace, joy, hope, and many blessings during this very special season!

Debbi Monahan, Principal
