What a wonderful way to end a fantastic school year!

Heroes In Lent!

The children are enjoying the short stories we are reading daily from our "Heroes In Lent" book. This book allows us to follow our real hero, Jesus.We are learning how he carried out his secret mission, and how to join in his work with our own friends and family. We are learning that even though there are troubles and trials , Jesus shows us everyday how to share in his great victory. This Lent we will beheroes with Jesus!

 

 

Frogs!

The children enjoyed learning all about Frogs this week!We learned that frogs are amphibians. This means they live part of their life in water and the other part of it on land. The frog's diet consists mainly of insects. Most frogs have a sticky tongue. To catch an insect, the frog flips out its tongue rapidly, gets the insect and retracts its tongue. Frogs hunt mostly at night. We also learned about the interesting life cycle of a frog. It changes from one form to another form in a process called, metamorphosis. Ask your child to tell you all about it!

Indoor Recess!

Due to the rain, we had indoor recess.

This was a perfect time to play board games, and practice some somersaults and tumbling on the mat!

Christ beside me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ within me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me.

- Saint Patrick

We started our week off by reading, "Jamie O'Rourke and the Big Potato." We then painted and assembled our own Jamie O' Rourke!

St. Patrick's day centers!

We had a great time finger-painting rainbows, counting gold coins, and searching for leprechaun letters!

Leprechaun Traps!

The students that would be at school on Friday, made leprechaun traps! They were very excited to come in on St. Patrick's day morning to check their trap for a little wee leprechaun! Unfortunately, we never caught a leprechaun and those mischievous little lads messed up our classroom! They did however leave us a note, hats, and gold coins to find!
