A Christmas Greeting from Cardinal Leger Catholic School Community Council It’s December and Christmas is right around the corner. A moment ago the school year began. One blink later, the snow is flying and we’re busy with ice skates, tobogganing, and toques. And to add to our already busy lives, Christmas always proves to be the busiest time of the year. As we rush to buy one more gift, bake one more batch of cookies, and hang one more garland, we must encourage each other to do just one more thing....share a moment to celebrate the true spirit of Christmas. Set me down Lord, on my knees now to pray, For in this position I can’t rush away. Help me remember that Christ high above Came down to the stable with nothing...just love. So when I get smothered in false holiday spirit, Play ‘O Holy Night’ and make sure I hear it! Help me realize that back to Christ we must rush Before He gets trampled in the holiday crush, For already He’s missing from “xmas” cards, And holiday decorations that light up our yards. Slow me down, Lord, when I’m off to false starts, For the spirit of Christmas is your love in our hearts. On behalf of the CLCSCC, thank you for all your support. We’ve accomplished a great deal already and we look forward to 2009 with great anticipation as we continue to work together to build our school community. For now though, we’re just taking a moment to count our blessings......a safe and happy school environment for our children is one of them.
