Welcome back! We hope you had a restful Easter recess! It is hard to believe it is May! On Sunday, Bishop Massa along with Fr. Grippo, Fr. Kareem, and Fr. Sal anointed the Annunciation school and Our Lady of Fatima religious education students with holy chrism. They excitedly took the next step in their faith in receiving the sacrament of Confirmation!

Dear Families:

“ Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.” – Mother Teresa

          Happy Wednesday!  A very fitting quote as we prepare for our individual and class photos tomorrow.  It is important that we share our smiles each and everyday as we share God’s love here at Annunciation.

         As we have been continuing our classroom visits, we have noticed that the children are learning with lots of smiles.   Along with those smiles we want to encourage our students to continue to cultivate an environment filled with kindness.  Our actions and words should work to emulate Jesus’ actions and words.

         As we have a long weekend ahead, please set aside time to continue to promote our read, read, read challenge!  In visiting the classrooms, I have also been encouraging the students to practice automaticity with math facts.  There’s always a few minutes that can be found to devote to practices like these! Thank you for being our partners in promoting further learning! 

        Friendly Reminder – If you haven’t registered your child(ren) for the Happy Kid Lunch Program, please do so and please remember to keep you account current. 

Have a wonderful long weekend with your family!
