Welcome parents and students! We enjoyed an active Catholic Schools Month and we are now looking ahead to the season of Lent which will begin next week on Ash Wednesday with mass at 9:00am. Please consider joining us as 4K leads the school in prayer. In class we will be discussing the importance of Lent as a time of self reflection, prayer and self sacrifice. We will talk not only about things we can “give up” but also things that we can “do.” Please take time to talk to your child about this very holy season.
Since Valentine’s Day falls on Ash Wednesday we will not be celebrating it then but instead on Tuesday with a sweet treat in the classroom. Please be sure that if cards or goody bags are being sent in, there are enough for all children.
As previously mentioned, our school auction will be held on Friday,April 13th at the Aqua Turf. It is our school’s biggest fundraiser and we need everyone’s participation. Our class basket up for auction will be “Summer Fun with 4K” but we need everyone to donate to help fill that basket! Whether with items or monetary donations, please reach out to our room mother, Mrs. Gagnier, and let her know how you can help.
Extra help sessions are each Thursday morning at 8a.m. unless notified of a change. Please email me the evening before if your child plans to attend. Thank you.
