La Salle Academy’s December Recap
Again this month, creativity was on display at La Salle. Distinguished guest lecturers “visited” our classrooms, student government leadership coordinated a Spirit Week, what would have been a “snow day” did not cancel school (we’re remote, remember!), college acceptance letters continued to arrive (you can view the list of schools here), and a school-wide Christmas prayer service occurred online. Read more below!
- Are we close to the end of the pandemic?
- Will the quest for social justice be satisfied for all people?
- When will the economy be strong again?
- Are we going to have to wear masks forever?
- What is the status of democracy in our country?
- How much longer before everyone can report to class at our school building?
In the midst of uncertainty, however, Christmas is a time of hope. Jesus was born in a land occupied by foreign forces to a young couple unable to procure proper accommodations for his birth. We Christians believe that God’s presence with us took human form in that child and that he grew up as our Savior who came to lead us to fullness of life. “Upon those who lived in a land of gloom, a light has shone” (Is. 9:2).
We live today as people of light, grateful for the gift of Jesus who shattered the darkness.
We celebrate Christmas 2020 in unique ways during uncertain times and we rejoice that there is no uncertainty about God’s love for each of us, and for all of us. For sure, we at La Salle regularly remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!
