I pray that everyone had a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.
We are back in class and so much to be thankful for. December was so good to us with our First Reconciliation, St. Nicholas Day, St. Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe, Christmas program, making parent gifts, Christmas party and Christmas break. We enjoyed every moment.
This month has us learning about many saints who played a big role in making Catholic Schools possible in America.
Today, the second and fifth grade buddies celebrated Epiphany, the gifts of the wise men. It was so cool. We enjoyed eating the cake to see who may be highly blessed. Nesbeth, a 5th grade friend, found the baby in her piece of cake. She was highly blessed for the day! She was so happy and we were happy for her. The lemon cake was delicious.
"Walking in Sister's Shoes" began today. We watched a video about St. Katharine Drexel. She was a very generous lady. We look forward to participating in the activities that will help us appreciate this wonderful and holy saint.
"I have a Dream" we are reading about Martin Luther King Jr. and what he did for our country. We can all dream big too and help our world. He was a great man.
The second grade class are reading the chapter book, Flat Stanley, by Jeff Brown. We look forward to sending our very own Stanley out to discover the great state of Kansas.
God is Good~All the Time
