First Holy Communion and Confirmation
By Mikayla Sharrow
Mother’s Day is a day to spend all your time with your Mom. Moms do everything they can to keep their children happy, healthy, and safe. You should give back to your Mom with a great present. They love flowers, cards, chocolate, pictures, etc. But the best gift you could give to your mom is a great big hug. Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 8th. You should do anything your mom asks you to. Remember the moms all over the world, and what they did for you.

Summer Reading Program:
The summer reading program gives you a chance to read over the summer and put how many minutes you read on a website called http://www.scholastic.com/summer. Whoever reads the most and has the most minutes in at the end of the summer will get a prize; and it is one that Jillian Romano and Kately Pawlak will be choosing. There also will be other prizes for other kids who will come in 1st,2nd, and 3rd place (in any grade from K-7th grade can achieve these prizes). The challenge of this ends on September 9,2016. The challenge is when kids all around the nation get at least 20 min. of reading in a day. I hope everyone enjoys their summer!
End of School Picnic
by: Nevaeh Walper & Catherine Hayes
At the end of school St. Mary School students head to Michigian Beach for a half day of hot-dogs and hamburgers for lunch and playground fun! This year our picnic will be held on June 9th. Parents provide yummy salads and desserts.My favorite part of the picnic is playing with my friends on the playground. In the past years this day has been a very bitter-sweet way to say Goodbye! Farewell, see you next year! to their friends that they won’t see over the summer. Our last day of school is June 10th. On this day we clean out our lockers and desks. We will also be doing graduation ceremonies.I hope your child's year at St. Mary School was a wonderful experience!

Father's Day in the United States is on the third Sunday of June. It celebrates the contribution that fathers and father figures make for their children's lives. Its origins may lie in a memorial service held for a large group of men, many of them fathers, who were killed in a mining accident in Monongah, West Virginia in 1907.
What Do People Do?
Father's Day is an occasion to mark and celebrate the contribution that your own father has made to your life. Many people send or give cards or gifts to their fathers. Common Father's Day gifts include sports items or clothing, electronic gadgets, outdoor cooking supplies and tools for household maintenance.
Father's Day is a relatively modern holiday so different families have a range of traditions. These can range from a simple phone call or greetings card to large parties honoring all of the 'father' figures in a particular extended family. Father figures can include fathers, step-fathers, fathers-in-law, grandfathers and great-grandfathers and even other male relatives. In the days and weeks before Father's Day, many schools and Sunday schools help their pupils to prepare a handmade card or small gift for their fathers.
