ALL SCHOOL NEWS..

Toys for Tots The annual Toys for Tots will be distributing toys to needy families on Monday, December 17th. We ask for your patience, and that you drive with care, as there will be many cars lined up to receive toys. Middle and high school staff, please park by the office in order to free up space in the main parking lot. Thank you.

Desert Chapel Elementary Christmas Presentation The elementary school Christmas musical, “Sing a Song of Christmas” is scheduled for Thursday, December 20th at 6:30 p.m. Please join us for this enjoyable and meaningful evening. There will be a small reception in the small gymnasium following the production. Please see the “In the Know – Christmas Musical,” sent out previously for students’ attire, arrival times, and the designated class donation for the reception.

End of Semester Friday, December 21st is the end of the semester. This is a minimum day, with an 11:30 a.m. dismissal. Report cards will be mailed with final grades for the semester.

Christmas Break Christmas Break is from December 22nd, 2018 to January 6th, 2019. We will return to school on Monday, January 7th, 2019. We wish you a peace-filled and joy-filled Christmas!

Seeking Host Families In January 2019, we will have the exciting privilege of 15 Korean students joining our classes, ranging from grades 3 through 8. The students arrive January 4th and stay until January 30th. We are seeking host families to open their homes to these international students. Host families receive a stipend and are credited for their required volunteer hours. The Korean students need to be transported to and from school. They also have events scheduled for the Saturday of each weekend, and will need to be dropped off and picked up from the church as they depart and return from these events. This is a tremendous experience. We need nine more host families. For more information contact Grace Ulaan at 760-327-2772, or graceu@desertchapel.org.
