First Grade Dolphin News
We thoroughly enjoyed our first week in the new classroom. We spent a lot of time learning new routines and procedures as well as wrapping up our study of the Desert Habitat!
Holy Week is a time of learning and reflection at St. John. Today we honored Jesus’ sacrifice on Good Friday through silent dismissal. Students made Holy Week books, studied each of Jesus’ last days on Earth, and prayed with the school community the Stations of the Cross. I sent home their Lent Journals, Stations of the Cross books, and Holy Week books in their folders today. Please use these wonderful resources to celebrate Holy Week!
We sadly said our goodbyes to Charlie McCarthy and his family. They are heading off to England next week. We will keep this amazing family in our prayers.
THANK YOU-Lenten Service Projects: Thank you for your generous donations of items for the Teddy Bear Patrol, Sock Drive, Book Drive, and Rice Bowl contributions. It was a joy to watch the students come together to give and bless others. If you check out Warm 106.9’s Facebook page or St. John Catholic School’s Facebook page, you will see a thank you video for the Teddy Bear Patrol. She was amazed how polite our students were at the Teddy Bear Patrol assembly!
We are now offering spirit gear for our families! The on-line store will be open until April 22. After that time, it will take two weeks for the gear to arrive. The spirit gear does NOT take the place of our school uniform. Show your school spirit and order today!!
