March 21st-23rd

Dear Parents,

Last week was full of fun! Our butterflies emerged, we had a great field trip to the Butterfly House,and made some cute crafts for St. Patrick's feast day. I really enjoyed teaching them some history on St. Patrick and about some Irish traditions.

In this short week, we will learn about the Holy Triduum. The children will make some Easter crafts. I wish you all a happy and holy Easter!
