May is my favorite month!  The flowers and trees are blooming with all their vibrant colors, and it is very nice to see the grass so green again.  There are many exciting activities planned during the month of May.

The children have been very busy preparing for their First Eucharist.  The April 29 Mass was beautiful, and the May 6 Mass will be equally as beautiful.  It has meant so much to me, as their teacher, to prepare them to receive Jesus for the very first time.

On Monday, May 14, at 9:00, the third graders will participate in our school's May Crowning.  Please come and honor our Blessed Mother with us.

It is Book Fair time again!  Our class will be going to the Book Fair on Wednesday, May 16.  What a great opportunity for your children to choose some great books for summer reading!

The book report for May is "Choice Month."  The children have chosen chapter books that they have not read before from a genre of their choice (biography, mystery, historical fiction, etc.).  A written report with an illustrated cover and a key are due by Wednesday, May 23.  Specific instructions were sent home on the format of the written report and cover.  Happy reading!

Our field trip to the Buffalo Zoo will be on Tuesday, May 29.  Thank you to all who volunteered to help out.  

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the moms a very Happy Mother's Day!  Have a great month!
