1st Reconciliation - March 2, 2017
April is a busy month as we will soon begin Holy Week. Holy Week is a very special week in the Church Year as it leads us to the Triduum - the three holiest days of the Church Year. The foundation of our faith is based on those three days. There will be special Masses/Services for those days. Be sure to check the bulletin for times. Those days provide an opportunity to take your children to Mass and celebrate our faith. Children are very curious so these services could lead to a great discussion about how much Jesus loves us! Hope to see some of you at those special days!
On April 28, we will hold our annual Walk for Education. The students will raise money for our school by walking/running. The students who have participated in Saints on the Sprint will actually walk/run a 5K that day. We will be looking for parent volunteers to help us with that activity. We plan on starting at 1:30.
As always, read, read, and read some more every night. Nonfiction reading is the best, but any reading will do. Reading picture books to a younger brother or sister works great. Practicing math flashcards too helps the students to master those skills as next year they will be tested on multiplication and division along with addition and subtraction.
