       March 19 - 23, 2018                                 

Easter is on It's Way!  Preparations for Easter have begun.  The Easter story will explain to us how Jesus' death brought us new life.  What are the signs of new life around us?  One very concrete sign will be the chicken eggs incubating in our room.  Their arrival on Tuesday (first day of spring) brings great excitement.  The preschoolers are always sure that they see cracks and that the eggs will immediately hatch.  We will mark our own egg calendars to help us with this 21 day wait.  Creating a life-of-Jesus cross, dyeing hard-boiled eggs, making Easter bags,  painting eggs, and hiding egg treats for our buddies will make for an egg-citing week.  Easter and eggs bring new life!  Chalet Dental  visits us on Thursday with dental health tips and Friday we will enjoy a play in O'Donnell Hall put on by our very own eighth graders.  Yes, Easter is on it's way.

New vocabulary words - incubator, dye

Letter of the Week - Pp            

Open House at MMSA is this Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m.  Spread the word to friends and neighbors about our great Catholic school.

No library visit this Wednesday.  This gives us a chance to return all borrowed books and check more out after Easter.   

Be sure to mark your calendar for all the upcoming events planned in April.  See dates below.  Family Fun Night with Sean Emery performing is a family event not to be missed!  He is an outstanding entertainer for all ages.  Bring family and friends, come for dinner and enjoy the show all courtesy of MMSA.

You may have noticed a new face in preschool recently.  Sharon Dueber, an MMSA grandparent, is our Thursday morning volunteer.  She is a wonderful addition and a huge help to our class.  Together, we are better.  Thanks, Sharon.           

Every Tuesday, this winter will be Outdoor Play Day.  Please send your            child ready to play outside in the snow and cold.  This means all children        need to have snow pants, boots, mittens, etc. on Tuesdays.  If weather does  not permit, we will get our exercise in the gym as usual.  Please work with      your preschooler on the all-important skill of dressing themselves. 


                          Could it be dinosaur footprints?

 Our mystery readers have been great surprises!  Thank you to all our  volunteers.  We have welcomed many moms, dads, teachers and even Mrs. Quast.  We look forward to more readers in April.  Will there be a grandma or grandpa reader?  Please return all library books by Wednesday to the LIBRARY BOX outside our classroom.
