First Grade Weekly Update

We enter Holy Week with several activities planned.  Students will attend Stations of the Cross on Tuesday afternoon.  Also on Tuesday evening is the Mini Maker Faire-all are encouraged to attend this fun filled evening in the hall (5-7 p.m.)  On Wednesday the school  will be walking to the Alameda Theatre for a special Earth Day showing of Penguins.   On Thursday we will participate in the Seder Meal with our Faith Families.

Remember that there is a noon dismissal on Holy Thursday (Share and Care is provided) and there is no school on Good Friday and through Easter week.

Thank you for turning permission slips in a timely manner for the Chabot Space and Science Center field trip on Friday, May 3.  If you offered to chaperone or drive you should have received an e-mail from me with confirmation to come this week.

Wishing you all a Blessed Easter and a wonderful Easter Break!
