In honor of the Feast of St. Patrick on Thursday, March 17th, the students may wear regular dress code or the color green. For many students this may mean dress code pants and a green shirt. The story of St. Patrick tells us that he used the shamrock to teach about the Blessed Trinity. Just as the shamrock has three leaves and one stem, so the Trinity is three persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in one God. During this Lenten Season, may we follow St. Patrick’s example in spreading the Good News of Jesus.
The Science Fair was a success once again this year! Thank you to the many parents who came to celebrate the learning of our children. Also thank you to the judges who gave their time to judge the 5th through 8th grade experiments. Parents Steve Klopcic, Maria Crowell and Amy Hermance plus seven students from Pacific University came to interview the students and to judge their projects. We appreciate their time and comments that will help the students to grow in their scientific knowledge and experimental design.
Congratulations to all our science fair participants! I saw many interesting science fair experiments.
The results of the Read-a-thon are in. A big congratulation goes to the kindergarten class! They had both the most minutes read and the most monies earned. The Kindergarten class read over 3000 minutes, and they earned over $600 for our school. Isabella Jackson in First Grade had the most monies earned by a student. It was a great job by all our readers. Please encourage your children to continue to spend extra time reading as reading skills are important to all subject areas.
Report cards will be sent home with your child on Friday, March 18th.
