Have a blessed and enjoyable Easter. The children had fun making your Easter gift! (Although three were left here in the classroom.....)

Take advantage of the clear and sunny weather and take a photo of your First Holy Communion child in their finery!! I always say this because sometimes Communion morning is cold and wet!

Monday is a full day and on Tuesday we have a dress down day, earth colors!

Have a nice Easter.
