A reminder: our 3rd through 6th graders (and a few older students and adults) have been hard at work preparing their songs for the annual “Lessons and Carols” concert. We are excited to share this beautiful service with you on Thursday, December 7, at 6:30 in the main sanctuary. After the concert, we’ll gather in the gym to celebrate with some hot chocolate and cookies.
We’ll also have art on display from some of our Rhetoric School students.
“Lessons and Carols” is a service celebrating the birth of Jesus that is traditionally followed at Christmas. The story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus is told in nine short Bible readings (read by various members of the Providence community), interspersed with the singing of Christmas hymns and choir music.
Parents of 3rd through 6th graders, please have your student report to his or her homeroom teacher in the small chapel at 6:10 pm. Mrs. Robinson’s homeroom class will meet in the Main Sanctuary at this time.
The student dress for this event is dressy casual; this includes slacks, button down shirts, dress shirts, polos or V-necks for the gentlemen, and dresses, skirts or pants for the ladies. Please no jeans, shorts, t-shirts, or sweatshirts. No hats, please. Christmas colors are optional.

Say Merry Christmas to faculty and staff with Christmas cookies. Natacha Liang and her crew will receive, plate, and distribute your cookies and treats tomorrow after chapel. If you are interested in being part of this festive gift project, please sign up on this Cookie List so we know how many cookies and treats to expect and bring your cookies to the Pearl Street Foyer in the morning.

The Family Under the Bridge Book Party
On December 14th at lunch 1st-6th graders will be celebrating the completion of our most recent family read aloud. We hope you are enjoying this heartwarming story and can complete it before then. We’ve got some fun Paris-themed decor and activities for our 1st-6th grade students. Ask Jenny Kiniry or Ellen Demers if you’d like to jump in.
As part of our Fun Lunch day, we’d like to make some bags of items that can be shared with the homeless through the holidays. We know this is a busy time so no pressure here, but if you would like to participate by sending something by Thursday, December 14th, please sign up here or just place your items in the box we’ll have in the four way foyer. Students will assemble the bags during their lunch break.
