THANKSGIVING CHAPEL & FEAST
It has been a Desert Chapel Christian School tradition to set aside the final day of school prior to Thanksgiving Break to gather together for a special All School Chapel and Pilgrims’ Feast. At present, the kitchen is being completely remodeled, and so, in lieu of a full Thanksgiving feast, we will gather together to enjoy delicious desserts, hot chocolate, and hot apple cider. The All School Chapel will
commence at 10:15 a.m. and we will enjoy worship led by the high school worship team, as well as special presentations by our elementary classes. Following the chapel, we will gather at the middle/high school campus to enjoy baked goods and fellowship. Please plan to join us on Friday, November 22nd, if your schedule allows, as we collectively give thanks for the good gifts that God gives to each of us as an outpouring of His love.
 

AFTER SCHOOL CARE
Donations of games, crafts, puzzles, and coloring supplies to the middle school After School Care program will be greatly appreciated. Items may be dropped off at the MS/HS office.
