Happy Friday!

Even though it was a bit of a dreary week, we can look forward to a sunny weekend!

This week, our 8th graders were busy preparing our all school May Crowing Ceremony. We hope to bring you the virtual ceremony on May 12, 2020.

Next week, we plan to bring you the tentative calendar for the 2020-21 school year. We understand you are receiving this a little later than normal, but, as you can imagine, there were a few setbacks beyond our control. The positive news is that The Archdiocese of Chicago has told us to plan for our original first day of school which will be August 19, 2020.

Now, onto our Family Friendly Fun Friday activity. As you know, next week is "Teacher Appreciation Week," please take a minute with your child and write down all of the amazing characteristics of your teachers and send them onto them. We say it often, but, we do miss our students. The abrupt end of the year has been so very difficult for all of us.

We would like to conclude this letter by asking you to pray for our second grade students as they were to receive the Sacrament of First Communion on Saturday. We have rescheduled this event and are hopeful that we will be able to gather in our church as a community once again very soon. Their 8th grade buddies sent them some "HUGS."
