May 9-13

This week, Kindergarten learned that we honour Mother Mary in the month of May and have been doing a great job at reciting the Hail Mary each morning to show her how much they love her. We also worked hard to create a gift for our own mothers to show them how much they mean to us as well. Thank you mothers, aunts, and grandmothers for all you do. Ms. Guevara and I would like to wish you all a tea-riffic Mother’s Day!
