“Night of Lights” 6A & 6B Ornament Instructions

Dear 6th Grade Families,
We hope you are all having a restful Thanksgiving weekend! All students are requested to participate in creating a themed ornament for their class trees to be displayed at this year’s inaugural “Night of Lights” event on Saturday, December 12th.
By now, you should have received a package in the mail from the Parish with a small flat wooden ornament for each student, along with a beautiful advent calendar for your family. In Art, each class selected a theme for their class tree with our amazing art teacher, Mrs. Lewandowski.
  • 6A theme is PEACE: “Christmas / Winter at HOME”– think red, white, comfy-cozy theme: think snow-covered trees, hot cocoa, birds, birdhouses, fireplaces, etc.
  • 6B theme is JOY: “Cartoon/Video Games/Animation”– think anything animated, use black, white and bright and neon colors, etc.
Each student should create an ornament to tie in with their class theme. They can use the wooden ornament or create their own (remember those great salt dough ornaments you made as a kid? You can Google ‘salt dough recipes’ online for a little nostalgia and creative family fun).
There is one tree for 6A and one tree for 6B. Each of these beautifully decorated trees will then be auctioned off at the “Night of Lights” event!
What to do:
  • Each Student to create a themed ornament.
  • Label the back of the ornament with your child’s name and homeroom class.
  • Turn in your ornament to the Parish Office by Friday, December 4th. The Parish Office is located under the JCPC (entrance door is located on Selby Avenue, next to the school/church driveway entrance). The office is open from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm daily.
With Peace and Gratitude –
Thank you for supporting the “Night of Lights” event!
Your 6th Grade Room Parents,
