Advent Activities at SJLS!

“Joy to the world, the Lord is come

Let earth receive her King

Let every heart prepare Him room

And Heaven and nature sing

And Heaven and nature sing

And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.“ LSB 387

During this Advent season the St. John’s students have many opportunities to sing Christmas praises and help others prepare for the celebration of Christ’s birth. Many students participate and lead Advent Services and also a few of the grades participate in the Orange Circle Tree Lighting.

This past weekend a small group of Mrs. Fink’s 4th grade students went over to the Town and Country Retirement Home. We brought our own set of hand chimes and played carols for the residents there. As we walked around and played, more and more people followed the sound of the music to see where our group was. The residents were overjoyed with our singing, but also the smiles that we brought with us. 

Around school, students like to find ways to bring joy to each other during this holiday season. This week, the 5th grade music class went caroling to different classes and lifted them up with some Christmas sing-a-longs. Also, last week, some of the 1st grade students went to school offices and classrooms sharing Christmas songs with others. 

There are many ways we are able to spread the joys of Christmas to others. Let us continue to look for ways to be the light to others this season!
