We only have a week and a half left until our kindergarten graduation! The graduation will be on June 17, 2009 at 11am. It will be in O’Ryan hall and we will have a small party after the graduation. I have sent home each students’ role in the program last week. Please practice and memorize these with your child.

Addition facts:

This week’s addition facts are 1+8=9, 8+1=9, 2+7=9, 7+2=9. The practice sheets that are sent home at the beginning of the week do not need to be turned in. It is for practice at home.

Wednesday: Students will be receiving their yearbooks on Wednesday. The students will get a chance to sign other students yearbooks and get their own yearbooks signed.

Friday: We will be going to the church for mass at the church. This is a special mass for the 8th graders as they are graduating on Saturday. Students are to come to the classroom when they get to school (similar to a rainy day). There will be no morning assembly. We will be walking to the church immediately. We will be taking a school picture in front of the church before the mass for a gift for Father O’Ryan. Students who are late will need to be dropped off at church. There will be no spirit dress.

Saturday: The eighth grade graduation will take place at Good Shepherd Church at 3pm.

Sunday: Sunday is Father O’Ryan’s has mass at 12 noon. Please try and come out to support Father as he retires. There will also be a small reception after the mass.

Summer School: If you are interested in your child attending Summer School, please turn in your form right away. Forms are available in the office.
