Mrs. Klaas – 4th grade
Students & Parents,
Happy March! As you know, second trimester grades close on Thursday, March 2 and our third and final trimester will begin. This year is zooming past. We celebrated our 4th grade prayer service and the topic was love, very appropriate as we recently celebrated Valentine’s Day. The students did a wonderful job. Thank you to all who were able to attend.
Wednesday, March 1st is the start of Lent, a season of fasting and prayer, and we will receive ashes and celebrate mass at 9am. All are welcome to join us. In class, we will discuss Lent as a time of preparation. We will talk about different ways we can prepare for Easter – through good deeds, big and small, prayer, and sacrifices we can make.
Please remind your children to keep working hard as we enter this final trimester and as we continue to prepare for 5th grade and beyond.
Please consider joining us for one or all of the Lenten Suppers held each Friday evening during Lent. Pasta, salad and a variety of soups will be served. It makes for a fun evening of socializing with other school and parish families and saves you from a night of cooking!
I wish each of you a prayerful and peaceful journey through Lent as you prepare for the beauty and wonder of Easter Sunday.
