May 8-12 1st Grade Newsletter
I hope that you are having a wonderful week so far. Just a few reminders, our class field trip is this Thursday and the money for the field trip is due on Tuesday. Five dollars for each student and seven dollars for parents. It will be cheaper to pay in advance and no tax will be added to it. Thank you again for all the drivers! We appreciate you and are very thankful that you are able to help us get around. I can't believe that the year is almost over and it makes me so sad to know there are only 10 days left of teaching your child. They have made such a difference in my life and I am so blessed to have been their teacher this year. Thank you for all that you do and for your patience and support this year! If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out my door is always open!
*I will send an email about when we will be having our last reading party of the year as soon as I know more.

In Religion this week, we will be talking about Followers of Jesus, the celebration of Pentecost, and How the church helps the World. Our Saint of the week is Saint Peter the Apostle. He lived in the First Century. Peter, a fisherman, was called by Jesus to be one of the Twelve Apostles. Jesus loved Peter very much, even though Peter denied knowing him on the night Jesus was arrested. After his Resurrection, Jesus appointed Peter leader of the Apostles and head of the Church. Peter was later arrested in Rome and Put to death. His feast day is February 22.
