What a lovely Mother’s Day Tea we had on Wednesday in the garden with our Kindergartners! The students so enjoyed having their mothers come and visit. We hope that you enjoyed the gifts that they made for you. May you continue to be blessed with the love of your families on Mother’s Day.
We would like to bring to your attention a special ceremony which takes place on Tuesday, May 28th. The Ribbon Ceremony is a tradition in which the Kindergartners place ribbons on the graduating 8th graders. It is a joy to see the “little ones” honor the older students by placing a special ribbon on the graduates in this special Mass. The mass is at 10:45AM and is one that you may not want to miss, if at all possible.
For the end of the year we have two special events planned. We would like to visit Fairyland for our end of year party and are waiting to hear confirmation of our trip. We will need drivers and there is a fee ; we will advise you of the date as soon as we have confirmation. The students are also learning songs for a musical production which we will perform for you on the last week of school. It is entitled “Friendly Neighborhood Helpers.” Each student will perform with a buddy a song about a “community helper”. You may receive a copy of some words for the song your child will be singing. Please practice with your child even if you don’t know the tunes. They children will know them! Again the date for our production has not been finalized but we will let you know as soon as it is confirmed.
The Guesstimation Jar goes to William.
