May is the month of Mary. We will be learning more about Mary and her life and role in our faith. We will also be praying the “Hail Mary”. Please practice praying this prayer with your child at home.

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death.




Friday is the May Procession at the Good Shepherd Church at 10:30. Field trip slips will be going home this week. Please make sure your child is in the complete, correct uniform. Parents are welcome to attend this special mass.



I can’t believe we have less than 2 months left until our kindergarten graduation! We will begin practicing for our exciting day. I will soon be sending out each students’ role in the program. For now, please practice with your child, the Character Counts pledge, Pledge of Allegiance, Salute to the Cross, Good Shepherd school song, and the words to the songs we will be singing. I will also be posting these on our blog.



Our class won the quarter race! We won a day of free dress. As a class, we will decide what day to have our free dress. Our school will be donating all the quarters collected from all the classes to the Columban Mission.



The spring pictures were sent home last week. If you like the pictures and would like to keep them and order more, please send the payment to school. Otherwise, you can send back the pictures.



We will be practicing our handwriting everyday this week. The new handwriting worksheet will be sent home on Tuesday and will need to be turned in next Monday (5/12).



Please note that the progress report shows expected development at this time and does not give a grade. If you would like to talk with me about your child’s performance, please schedule an appointment to meet with me. These progress reports need to be signed and returned.
