Bethlehem Catholic students are settling into the second quarter and looking ahead to Christmas break – making it ironic that the first snow days of the year came around less than two weeks after the quarter had begun. The weather interrupted an in-school retreat and the final day of Thanksgiving food drive collections; however, charitable students were not deterred. Efforts will be increased to collect food and other necessary items for less fortunate residents of the area before Christmas.
