Hello Grade One Families!
Today, with the celebration of Palm Sunday, we begin the most holy week of the Church year. This week in Grade 1 we will be focussing on the events of Holy Week in Religion class, at storytime, and by participating in school-wide activities. As we come to the end of the season of Lent, please join us or drop your child off for morning Mass this week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 8:15am. There is no morning Mass on Thursday. This Friday, Good Friday, there is no school. If you are able to attend the Stations of the Cross for Children, they will be held on Friday morning at 11:00am in the Church.
On Tuesday during Music class, the students in Grade 1 will have the opportunity to share one of their talents with the class. They can play an instrument, sing, dance, show a drawing or other art project, tell a joke or two, show martial arts moves, or bring something that represents a sport that they play outside of school. Many of the children have already told Mr. Kelly what they will be sharing. While the children are encouraged to participate, it is not mandatory. They will have another opportunity next year. If your child has not already talked to you about the "Talent Showcase", please discuss it with them and help them to remember to bring anything that they need on Tuesday morning.
Please send in the Mite Boxes on Wednesday as we will be presenting them in the Church on Thursday morning.
Have a wonderful week!
