I am so excited to be preparing for First Eucharist with you!

"It is not to remain in a golden ciborium that He comes down each day from Heaven, but to find another Heaven, the Heaven of our soul in which He takes delight."

-St. Therese of Lisieux

Dear Parents,  

            The children have been working diligently on their animal reports for a few weeks now.  Today we are filled with pride as we display our finished products in the hall for everyone to enjoy.  We will take a little break and free write for a bit and then it will be time to try our hand at poetry!

            In Religion we have been learning about two saints. The first is St. Imelda the patroness of First Communicants.  She joined the Dominican Order of  Sisters at the very young age of 9.  You can learn more details about her from your young scholar.  The second saint is Saint Juan Diego.  He was a Mexican farmer who was visited by Mary, also known as  Our Lady of Guadalupe.  We are planning to reenact this event to honor Mary in May,  which is the month of Mary.

Dear Parents,

            2nd Graders are encouraged to wear their First Holy Communion attire to our all school Mass this Friday.  Please join us after Mass on Friday, April 29th for hospitality.  Your second grader will have received Jesus’ body, blood, soul, and divinity for the first time in community with the St Maximilian Kolbe School children!

            We are working on counting money in Math this week and next.  All of the children are very good at recognizing each type of coin and knowing its’ value.  They are pretty consistent in finding the value of a group of coins also.  Kudos to you and Mrs. Yager!!  Our challenge this year is to learn how to make change.  Please help us strengthen this skill at home.  Here is the terminology we are using.  “Count up from the cost or price of an item to the amount of money given to pay for it””  Thanks so much!!

“EMPOWERING PARENTS”

            Loving our children means actively listening to them.             

            The whirlwind society we live in hinges on words like multi-task, more, and faster.  These concepts are contrary to active listening.  Active listening means to stop and give your full attention to the speaker and their message; not to just hear the words being said.   It involves all of your senses, eye contact, posture, facial expression, a nod…. These non-verbal signs assure your child that what they are saying, feeling, and thinking is important to you.  They know they have value.  They are loved!                              

                                                     “Be still and know that I am here.” 

                                                                                                - The Fray
