"Walk in Faith with Mercy and Grace"

Week of March 21- March 25, 2016

Hello Parents,

Last week I sent home two permission slips to be signed. On April 6th we will be going on a field trip called Inside the Outdoors at Santiago Oaks to learn about habitats and life cycles. The field trip does cost $14.75. If you have not turned that in, please turn in both the permission slip and money by THIS Thursday March 24.

Flat Stanley/Flat stella was sent home last week. Please make sure to send your Stanley/ Stella soon. If you are taking Stanley/ Stella with you over break please make sure to take tons of pictures. Stanley/ Stella was sent home as just a cut out. Please dress Stanley/Stella using construction paper, markers, pencils, fabric, crayons, etc.

This week is Holy Week and one of the most important weeks in our Catholic-Christian faith. This week we will be going over the Holy Days. Here is a prayer that I wanted to share with you as we reflect on Jesus' death and resurrection.

A Prayer for Holy Week
Lord Jesus Christ,
in this sacred and solemn week
when we see again
the depth and mystery of your redeeming love,
help us to follow where you go,
to stop where you stumble,
to listen when you cry,
to hurt as you suffer,
to bow our heads in sorrow as you die,
so that, when you are raised to life again,
we may share in your endless joy. Amen.

I Hope you all have a joyous and blessed Easter. Enjoy your time with your family. I will see you all after Easter Break!!
