       Students at DuBois Central Catholic will be celebrating the holiday season with school events that remind everyone that Jesus is the Reason for the Season!

       The annual Family Advent Celebration will take place on Sunday, December 11, at 1 p.m. in the auditorium.   Under the direction of secondary music teacher, Jodi Stewart, middle and high school students will be performing both choral and instrumental selections. 

        The Middle School Drama Club, directed by Stewart, has been practicing after school for their presentation of The Good News … a play that teaches the importance of helping the less fortunate and the calling to give of ourselves for others, which is the message of the Birth of Jesus. 

         The play, written by Kara Wilkins, is produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service of Englewood, Colorado. Families attending are asked to bring a family-sized tray of treats to share for the social in the cafeteria following the middle school performance. 

        On Sunday, December 18, at 2 p.m. students in Kindergarten through 5th grade will present Carols & Cookies, an afternoon of music and song, under the direction of Joe Lesnick, elementary music teacher.    A social will follow in the cafeteria. 

        On Wednesday, December 21st at 9 a.m. in the auditorium, Pre-School students will be presenting the Many Shapes of Christmas, under the direction of Lesnick. Families will be delighted, too, with plans for this event!

      Without a doubt, every event has one focus: Jesus is the Reason for the Season at DCC!
