HOMEWORK AND REMINDERS FOR THE WEEK OF APRIL 7 - APRIL 11

You are reminded that lunch money should be sent in by Thursday.

Thursday is gym day.

If possible save the date. Every year the children work on a biography about their mothers and I like to invite all moms to hear the children read these stories as a Mother's Day treat.  I have asked Sister Margaret if I can do it again this year, and I am hoping to do this on Friday, May 9th.  I would like to invite you to a light breakfast treat as the children read. The time frame would be from about 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM.  This is to accommodate the moms that work.  I am letting you know now in case you need to make arrangements to go to work late etc.

We will continue with  the section of the book on Holy Week (pages344-353.)  We will be preparing for Palm Sunday.
