Dear SCBA Families,

This week in our Advent journey, we light the Shepherds’ Candle. The Shepherds’ Candle reminds us that the Shepherds were the first to recieve the glorious news of the birth of Jesus Christ. While we have fun with the elves on our shelves and enjoy our Christmas parties, what a blesssing it is to know that this time of year is about so much more!

We had an incredible turnout for our Christmas movie night. A huge thank you to the 6th grade parents and students for making this night happen. 

​This Thursday (12/14) is the annual Rady Children’s Hospital “Fill the Bucket Day. Our student council members will be in the parking lot collecting money that will be donated to Rady Children’s Hospital. All students who bring a minimum donation of $1 are allowed to wear free dress on this day. 

Have a blessed week and Advent season!

​The SCBA Team

 Thought for the Week:
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. Luke 2 : 15-18
