The staff and students of Immaculate Heart of Mary School celebrated Pylypivka on November 15th with an assembly in the school gymnasium. This year???s theme was JOY, an acronym for Jesus, Others and Yourself. The grade six class started off the celebration wearing white medical lab coats while they proclaimed that the spirit of Pylypivka was going viral. Some of the symptoms included: an unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment, a loss of interest in conflict and frequent attacks of smiling. Other parts of the celebration included a PowerPoint presentation with students reading several passages from the Bible along with an animated vignette about the joy and meaning of Advent.
