First Grade Dolphin News

Saints-in-training!  This week students trained to be like saints through their actions. We played “Virtues of the Saints” to remind us how to be saint-like in our everyday lives.

Pray for the living and the dead like St. Cyprian– Each student wrote names of family and friends and prayed for them.

Clothe the naked like St. Vincent dePaul– Each student made paper clothes for his/her person.

Feed the Hungry like St. Elizabeth of Hungary– Each student decorated two paper muffins.

Build the church like St. Francis-Each student used blocks to build a church.

Teach the faith like St. Patrick- Each student made shamrocks and wrote the persons of the Trinity.

Give to the poor like St. Nicholas – Each student made money and their own chimneys.

 

I am thankful for each of you and wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
