April 22-26 Newsletter

Today we celebrate the great feast of Easter.  Jesus rose from the dead.  There will be NO school on Monday.  We will be watching Lion King presented by SEAS select choir  on Tuesday afternoon.  I will be administering the Spring Dibels Math and Reading Assessments on Wednesday.  There will be a substitute in our classroom.  I will not be near my computer to receive emails on that day.  If you need to contact me please call the office and leave a message.  Our little "creatures" are sporting some green hair.  The amaryllis is growing and hopefully we will have a beautiful bloom very soon.  I guess that we may have a "green  thumb." 
We will be going to Botanica on Friday afternoon.  If you are not a driver please be sure to send your child's booster seat.  This will be a jeans and SEAS Spirit shirt day for kindergarten.  Looks like we are going to have beautiful weather.  NO Show and Tell this week.  
We will be studying the sacrament of Baptism next week.  I am asking parents to complete the worksheet and attach a picture from their child's Baptism. Thank you for your help!
