St. Mark News

May 9, 2016

Dear St. Mark Families,

What comes to mind when you think about the Holy Spirit? Our first graders can tell you so much about the Holy Spirit. Their Holy Spirit projects were absolutely wonderful. You can tell they know how the Holy Spirit helps them, gives courage and faith, empowers them to be strong and brave, and teaches them to trust in God. These are just a few examples of how the Holy Spirit helps.

During the month of April our teachers spent time working with their students on writing and enjoying poetry. I remember back in my catholic school days we had a poetry book and we had to recite poems from memory. It’s nice to see that the teachers have taken it a step further and had their students write original poems. The seventh grade students wrote Haikus. I hope you can feel the wind blowing through the air as you read the haiku below.

God bless,

Mrs. Maria Sanson
