Happy Cinco de Mayo! Are you counting the days yet? There are eight days until 8th grade is finished, and 15 days until the end for everyone else. This will be a busy time…First Communion, May Crowning, Awards Day, and Graduation will all take place in the next couple of weeks. If that wasn’t enough, throw in MAP testing, a couple of field trips, our talent show, and all of the other craziness that signals the end of the school year.
Next Friday, May 12th, is May Crowning and Awards Day. May Crowning will take place at 8:30AM with an all school Mass at 9AM. This will be followed by our Awards Day in the gym. Please join us, if you are able.
Flowers for May Crowning
Third grader Annie La has created an assortment of beautiful handmade paper flowers, perfect for May Crowning, Mother’s Day or just to make your table look pretty!
Annie is offering these flowers for a donation and they will be available after school the week of May 8th. All contributions will be donated to St. Mark School. Photos of her creations are shown below.
