ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Dear Parents,



Dear Parents,

God is so good! He gave us the most beautiful sunny day for our Easter celebration.

Thank you very much for your participation sending all the items for our Easter celebration. The children had a wonderful time breaking the “cascarones” and picking up the eggs at the egg hunt. We noticed that the children are doing very well sharing and being nice with each other what that has been one of our purposes during this Lenten season.


Read-A-Thon. Since our children are not reading on their own yet, parents can read to them and fill in the reading log. For every book you read to your child you can ask friends and family for a donation depending on the number of books you plan to read to your child.


We want to wish all of you and your families a wonderful Easter. We encourage you to have a peaceful and happy spring break vacation. The Passion reminds us that there will be difficult times for each of us, times where we feel we want to give up, but God is always there to help us...we just need to turn to Him in prayer.

• There won’t be Mass on Thursday, because is Good Thursday.

• Friday noon dismissal, Good Friday.
