St. Mark News
May 2nd, 2016
Dear St. Mark Families,
Tuesday was a beautiful day as our 6th Grade students received the sacrament of Confirmation. The children were well prepared and excited for their special day. I always enjoy reading their saint reports, and was especially impressed with how wonderful they did on their confirmation tests. God bless you 6th grade!
Our 4th grade students have been working on writing petitions to offer up to our Blessed Mother during the month of May. I must say they have big hearts. Their petitions are so beautifully written. It is very touching to see how they sweetly ask Our Mother to help all those in need.
I think we may have future authors in our 5th grade class. They wrote mini books with illustrations, and they did a wonderful job. Our younger students enjoyed listening to them read their stories, and we were all very impressed with their creativity. Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents with your school mates 5th grade!
May God continue to bless you and your family.
Mrs. Maria Sanson
