Dear Parents and Guardians,
Easter is almost here and we will be celebrating the joy of resurrection and new life. All around us we see this happening as the days become warmer and plants are beginning to bloom. This is a glorious time to marvel at new beginnings and the many gifts that we are given.
This past week I attended the Casino Night held by the First Grade parents. It was a great night out and well attended by many of the families. The baskets were amazing and the decorations outstanding. Many thanks to the First Grade parents, and the Mother’s Club. It is always wonderful when the school community can come together and enjoy themselves.
In these last two weeks we have administered the NYS ELA exam. When we return from vacation we will be giving the NYS Math exam. The students are ready and we expect it to go smoothly. We have also made the Stations of the Cross with the students in grades 1 – 8. This Lenten observance is a tradition that recreates the last moments of Jesus’s life. The question and answer sessions with Monsignor Tom afterwards were wonderful. I know he was amazed at the insight some of the children had.
Tomorrow we will have two events. In the morning students will be performing for the rest of the school with instruments they created in art. I am very excited to see how both Visual Art and Music come together in performance. In the afternoon grades 4 – 6 will be revisited by the Islanders. We will be incorporating STEM into an Islanders experience. I can’t wait to see what both events are about.
I would like to wish you and your family a Blessed Easter. Enjoy your Easter break.
