We would like to thank our moms who attended last week's Mother's Tea. The kids worked hard in preparing all the wonderful hats, decorations and the scrumptious food for the tea party. Since the scones were such a hit, we will be printing out a copy of the recipe and sending it home with each child. Cheers to our amazing moms!

Language Arts - We are working on completing our Superkids Club student books.

Math - In math this week, we explored three dimensional shapes by making shapes from other shapes. For example, we made a hexagon using 6 small triangles. We also described shapes with actions. For example, a cylinder, a sphere and a one can roll. A cube, a cylinder, and a cone can slide and can be stacked. Lastly, we built using all of these shapes.


In May, we celebrate mothers. This week during religion, we focused on Mary the mother of Jesus. We studied her life as she cared for her Son and after His death, as she continued to be an example of faith and love.

The Kindergartners of Mrs. Hale's class came up with a prayer for the moms on the day of the Mother's Tea:

Dear Lord,

We hope our moms have a good time today and always remember that we love them very much. Thank you for our moms who took care of us since we were born. Please keep them safe and happy all the time. We wish for our moms to always stay healthy especially those who are pregnant or who have just given birth. God bless our beautiful moms!



This Friday, May 13 through Thursday, May 19 , Hodgins Library will sponsor the 8th Annual Recyle & Read Event, and everyone is invited to participate. What is it, you might ask? Simply put, our MJS community has been dropping off their gently used books during the school year. Our Library Committee sorts through all titles - infant through adult - displaying them on tables in the library during Recycle and Read. Parents, students, faculty and staff can stop by and pick up books to take home, free of charge.

The library is still taking gently used books for Recycle and Read. So, if you have a shelf of books you would like to part with and pass along to other eager readers, bring them to the library this week. For your convenience, MJS Girl Scouts will have a book curbside collection on Euclid Avenue on collection on Euclid Avenue on Tuesday, May 10 and Wednesday, May 11, 7:40 - 8:00 AM.
