We celebrate new life in the Catholic Church in just 14 days – the life in heaven we are promised through the passion and death of our Lord. This is the main celebration of the Catholic Church calendar. I do hope that you and your children will have the opportunity to attend at least one, if not all three, of the services of the Triduum. They are truly powerful experiences.
I truly hope that you will help your child keep up during next week’s Easter break through daily home activities: reading together and by self, adding and subtracting while helping out around the house and in the kitchen, writing in a daily journal, spelling in the car, mental math (have your child make you problems!), taking a nature walk. There are endless ways to practice all that your child has learned in daily activities around the house and on vacation!
It is my prayer that your families will be blessed with the graces of extra time spent in prayer and the joy of the resurrection. Happy Easter!

This Week in First Grade
We will finally attend the play “Henry and Mudge” on Tuesday. Please note that the children will have their lunch early at 11:00 AM, so we can leave on time. They will have their snack when we return @ 2:15 or so.
We will focus on Holy Week in class this week. I will also be giving a unit test in language arts and review math skills.
