Weekly Family Newsletter
Friday, April 18, 2014
- The fourth graders, under the direction of Mrs. Bekkum and Mrs. Dumont, led us in a prayerful rendition of the Living Stations of the Cross. The prayer was beautifully and reverently rendered and was the perfect way to begin our Holy Thursday. Students went to CCH in the afternoon to pray with the residents there.
- Seventh grade life science students have been dissecting critters galore! This unit helps students to understand body systems, follow lab procedures, and correctly use lab tools.
- Middle school health students are learning about the cardiovascular system and how to maintain their own healthy system.
- Fifth graders researched major events of the American Revolution and produced wonderful “circle books” that are on display in the hallway.
- Third grade Art students reviewed the Old Testament Bible story or Joseph as they began their Joseph’s Coat unit. Look for their finished projects at the Fine Arts Festival in May.
- The first graders have been reading non-fiction books to find facts about animals. They have also been investigating states of matter – solids, liquids, and gases.
- Second graders produced “Gallon Guys and Gals,” creative robots that show students’ understanding of capacity.
- Kindergarten students have begun writing their Young Authors’ stories. Before they began drafting, they spent time exploring characters, settings, and plots.
- Take me out to the ballgame! Our baseball and softball teams begin their competitive seasons next week. Check out the calendar on Ren-web for game times and locations. Hopefully we will not have any May snow surprises to postpone any games!
In Our Prayers
- Please keep Mary Wiegel, grandmother of Skyeler, Liberty, Ava, Estelle, and Gracelyn Siwik, in your prayers. She will be having heart surgery next week.
- If your family has special prayer requests, please let us know, so that we can include them in our weekly petitions.
- Students of the month for March are Carly Simones, Claire Jakubowicz, Adrea Faschingbauer, McKenna Miling, Dieter Schueller, Katy Shimp, Sydney Gunderson, Donovan Doffing, Catherine Stewart, and Model of Faith, Katie Milbrandt. Keep up the great work.
- Congratulations to Mrs. Carow and her family, who welcomed baby, Lorelei Margaret, on Wednesday evening. Lorelei weighed 8 lb. 7 oz. and is 21 inches long.
- Congratulations to Mrs. Juranek who was received into the full sacramental life of the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil.
- If your family has good news to share, please let me know, so I can include it in our weekly communication.
- There is no school on Monday, April 21.
- Grades 3 and 4 will visit Orchestra Hall on Tuesday.
- Wednesday is Immigrant Day in 4th grade.
- Re-enrollment is open on Ren-Web. Thanks for taking the time to complete the process. If you have not completed the process, please do so as soon as possible. We need the information for planning for next year. Scholarships are available for anyone needing them. We have had some very generous donations to our scholarship funds, including an anonymous foundation that has pledged us continuing support. We want to make sure that finances are not a barrier to Catholic education now and in the future. Please call me for information.
- Check out our Saint Patrick School Facebook page. It is updated often with pictures and stories about the great things happening at school.
- There will be no school on Good Friday, April 18 and Easter Monday, April 21.
- Sra. Bates will not be returning to teach at Saint Patrick School next year. It was a difficult decision for her. She will dedicate more time to her husband’s health. We will miss her and wish both Mr. and Mrs. Bates the best.
- Our annual Walk-a-Thon will be Tuesday, May 20. Look for more information at the end of the week.
I hope your Easter Sunday was wonderful and the joy of the resurrection continues throughout the Easter season.
May God continue to bless our faith community.
