We are in our last week of March and this is Holy Week. We'll focus our attention on learning all about each day of this special week. Today is Palm Sunday and the children have made Palm Leaves to wave in the air to welcome Jesus as he rides on a donkey. We saw a video called, "The Donkey No One Could Ride" and the children loved it. It's a beautiful story, if you would like to share it with your family you can find it on you tube.
The crosses the children made were blessed on Friday at Mass! Hooray! The crosses will be taken home this week. I decided to leave a point at the end in case you choose to put it in your yard or you can put a soda pop pull top ring on it and hang it on the wall. The children decided where to put the cross piece so it's uniquely their own. The crosses have been weather treated so they will do well outside.
We'll be having our Easter Celebration on Wednesday, March 31st. Please see the sign up sheet if you can help with our special snack The children made special Easter bags and if your child would like to bring a goodie to fill up those bags, the children would be very appreciative. We have 11 children in the class.
On Holy Thursday the Preschool will close promptly at 12:30. We'll be closed on Good Friday and the following week as well. Thursday morning we'll get to see the eighth graders read The Stations Of The Cross and we're so looking forward to that.
