Dear St. Thomas Family:

As we prepare for Thanksgiving, we have been reminding the students to pray for those who do not have enough to eat, maybe have no one who loves them to share a meal, or are just far away from family due to work, military service, or circumstances.  As you sit down to your own celebration dinners, maybe your family could extend our efforts and offer a prayer at table for those whose Thanksgiving needs a little more Thanks and a little more Giving.

Congratulations to our local Spelling Bee winner, Isidro Jiz and Runner-up, Danyelle Russell, and congratulations to all who participated!  Good job!

When we return on November 26th, we will be just a short sleigh ride from Christmas!  Many activities and events loom large, so update your calendars!
