A new idea for your family Advent calendar this year!
In the true spirit of Christmas we are asking that our students in grades 7, 8, 9 and 10, and their families, fill their own “reverse Advent calendar”. The idea behind the reverse Advent calendar is to add an useful item of basic human household or personal need to a box each day leading up to Christmas rather than removing a daily treat from an Advent calendar
