“We need the new evangelization. We need to be reawakened in our love for and adherence to the good news that Christ has died for us and has given us eternal life so that we can go to heaven.” - Scott Sollom
Thank you to all the grandfathers and fathers who came to the mass and breakfast on Friday morning for the Solemnity of St. Joseph. The kids were very excited to have such special guests in the school. Also, thank you for the volunteers who helped make the breakfast happen! Without your help, things wouldn’t have gone as smoothly as they did. We appreciate families who signed up to bring in treats for the feast day of St. Patrick on Friday as well. Our students had a lot of energy to end the week. :)
Our students enjoyed the second week of the Dr. Seuss unit this week! They decorated their own hat after reading the Cat in the Hat, started our classroom garden after reading The Lorax, and made “pink ink drink” from One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Be sure to ask your child about our classroom garden and how they enjoyed the pink ink drink. If you would like to make your own pink ink drink at home, here is the recipe we followed and multiplied for all the students in our class:
4–6 large strawberries (fresh or frozen)
4 ice cubes (if using fresh strawberries)
2–3 tablespoons vanilla yogurt
½ cup orange juice
glasses and straws
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth and frothy. Serve in a glass with a straw. This recipe makes one serving. Recipe from: http://www.seussville.com/parents/recipes/pink-ink-yink-drink
We have one more week until spring break! Here are a couple friendly reminders for the upcoming week:
- Spring Break for St. Peter’s is Monday, March 27- Friday, March 31. We hope you enjoy your time off of school!
- Please be sure to check the Wednesday folders for any fees or payments needed from the office.
We hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend with your families! We will see you tomorrow and God bless!
