It has been quite a week at TFA. The temperatures in Orlando dipped below 40 degrees just in time for our Lower School students to really get into the Christmas spirit and “Deck The Halls”. It was such a joy to walk the halls and see the students and teachers setting up their Christmas vignettes and snapping photos to share with parents and families.
Christmas is such a special time at The First Academy. While we enjoy all of the Christmas Dress-Up days, holiday-themed treats, and classroom parties; we are truly blessed to celebrate the real meaning of Christmas. Sometimes we get so busy during the holidays that we miss the point of Christmas, placing importance on gifts and parties—not Jesus. My prayer is that our students can cling to His hope, revel in His love—spread it too—and experience the embrace of the Savior born in that simple manger.
While this Christmas may look different than it has in the past in a lot of ways, there are still many opportunities to keep the real meaning of Christmas at the forefront with your family and in your home. Here are seven simple ways to keep Christ the central focus of your life this Christmas season.
I look forward to sharing the weeks ahead on campus with our students and families as we all prepare for the Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!
