In December, Christ the King School fully embraced the Christmas spirit with cheerful attitudes and numerous events. Our toy drive which ended on the 15th would make this season of giving much brighter for the less fortunate families and their children. During the two weeks of toy drive promotions, our school was preparing for the shoe drive as well. You can currently see flyers about the upcoming effort posted on the auditorium entrance. Our T.K. class then went on an adventurous field trip to Knott’s Berry Farm on Dec. 12. Basketball season has started, and both our varsity and b-teams are currently working on reigning victorious in their matches. The choir held an Advent concert with the
professional choir Nova Vocal Ensemble, singing a part dedicated to “Carol of the Bells,” on Dec. 9. Everyone was also preparing for our ongoing, annual Christmas pageant. We spent several hours a day to perfect our concert, which represents what the Christmas story means to us. Our eighth-grade students participated in not only singing but acting as the roles in the Nativity. Our eighth-grade girls dressed up as the angels, making a procession with glowing candles, while our boys dressed up as the shepherds and the three Magi following the star to where baby Jesus was born. We even had a Mary and Joseph! In the end, our fantastic audience and students left the church with joyful, excited spirits. Our winter break officially started on Dec. 13, with all grades celebrating with parties and movie-watching. May I, on the behalf our school, wish you happy holidays and a stellar New Year!

15 students will show us what they have been working on in their wonderful music classes. My little sister will be singing about ugly sweaters with her 2nd Grade classmates. It will be a lot of fun. Yippee, we are finally on a field! After three LONG years we now have a home field. We have been passing the ball, playing soccer and even some rugby. Everyone has been celebrating. Basketball season has now begun. Boys Varsity, Girls Varsity, and Middle School Boys teams are all ready to bounce that ball. We shoot, we score, we play as a team. I like basketball. Last year the MS Boys lost by one point in the finals, but this is our year, hopefully. Happy New Year and GO PATRIOTS!
December proved to be an exciting month for Loyola Cubs. Seniors received their early decision and early action notifications from many of the top colleges in the country before taking their final exams, completing seven semesters at Loyola. In January, every single senior will spend three weeks working at service sites throughout the Los Angeles area, contributing to the community and truly fulfilling the mantra of “Men for Others.” On Dec. 16, fathers and sons participated in the Father-Son Day of Service, helping out the local communities surrounding Loyola. As Christmas Break approaches, every single Loyola student is ready for a relaxing, reinvigorating respite from the hectic school year.
graders participated in the annual Learnathon to raise money for their senior trip to Israel. The students remained after school one evening to hear various speakers who taught lessons about true friendship. Each speaker brought his/her own reflections about friendship and truly inspired the students. Finally, the 8th grade students went to see the new film production, “Wonder.” After returning from the movie, we discussed the film and the importance of friendship, kindness and loyalty. Watching the emotional story of Auggie blossoming from a quiet, selfconscious young boy to a confident proud young man greatly moved the students. December was a month of tremendous growth for Yavneh students.
By Daniella Zisblatt 8th Grade D e c e m ber at Yavneh was fun-filled, with the motif of friendship recurring throughout our school activities. Yavneh launched the father-son and mother-daughter learning nights. Most Saturday nights, parents and their children come to school to learn together and to enjoy a delicious dinner and raffle prizes with their friends. This bonding experience truly connects the parents with their children in a unique way. In addition, last month the 8th
