Principal’s Note:
 

My in-laws are visiting from Rhode Island this week and my Father-in-law loves the Peanuts cartoons.  On Sunday afternoon he was proud to watch the classic Charlie Brown’s Christmas with my three year old daughter and two year old son.  My in-laws also gave the kids a book the retells the story, along with buttons that have songs and quotes from the movie.  Because of the fact that it makes fun sounds, my kids and I have read it at least a dozen times since Sunday.  There is one quote from the movie that always strikes me whenever my kids play it. If you have not seen the movie, Charlie Brown is frustrated and sad that he does not understand Christmas and he is frustrated by how commercialized Christmas has become.  He is surprised that Snoopy is decorating his dog house with Christmas lights in order to win money, he is frustrated that his sister Sally is asking Santa Claus for money, and he is annoyed that the rest of the Peanuts gang does not participate in practicing for the Christmas program and criticize him for getting a scraggly tree.  In his frustration Charlie Brown asks, “Can anyone tell me what Christmas is all about?”  His best friend Linus steps forward and quotes the Christmas story from Luke 2… the true meaning of Christmas is that a Savior has been born in Bethlehem and He is Christ the Lord.

Even though I have heard it many times in the past, and especially in the last few weeks, Linus’ recitation of Luke 2 stirs something inside my gut and in my heart.  Linus reminds me in the face of all that goes on during the Christmas season with the parties, the decorations and the presents that Christmas is not about us, but about Christ coming into the world. At ECS we are diligently preparing for our Christmas programs (Monday, December 18 for the Preschool Program and Tuesday, December 19 for the K-8 Program), learning about Christmas celebrations from around the world and doing Christmas projects to send home.  Yet we hope that in all the busyness of the season we take time to reflect on the fact that Christmas is about Jesus Christ our Lord.

Come celebrate Christmas with us during our Christmas programs, read through Luke 2 again, watch Charlie Brown’s Christmas and let’s celebrate the coming of Christ into the world!

In Christ,

Mr. Alberts

Volunteer Opportunities and Reminders:

Please remember that each family is asked to complete service hours to benefit the life of the school.  Some families have already worked many hours to prepare for the auction, to help with the soccer team, serve pizza or help in classrooms.  Please make sure to log your hours via the school website at this link.  The first half of the service hours fee will be assessed in late January.  

If you are looking for additional opportunities to serve there are always small projects at ECS that require some attention.  Would you consider coming to do some small painting projects, clean up the gym area or help dust the school to make it look nice for the holidays?  If you have time during the day or after school and would like to serve please contact Mr. Alberts at jalberts@everettchristian.org.

Other service opportunities:
