Advent Silent Entrance/Exit
: With joyful anticipation, we prepare for the birth of Jesus Christ throughout the season of Advent. To mark this season of waiting, we will bookend the week with silent entrance on Mondays and silent dismissal on Fridays. As students enter school on Monday mornings during Advent, the dimmed lights will remind students to remain silent as they prepare themselves for the day. Teachers will hold battery-operated candles and encourage students to complete their normal morning routines. On Fridays, students will leave their classrooms in silence. We encourage students to maintain this silence until they are in the car or on the bus. Thank you for supporting students in these times of silence to pause, wait, and prepare our hearts for the birth of the Lord. The first silent entrance will be on Tuesday, November 30
