Saturday was our First Communion Retreat. We spent a fun morning packed full of activities to help the second graders prepare for their First Holy Communion. The students and their parents worked together to bake bread, decorate keepsake crosses and candles, practice receiving communion, and search for items in the church.
We had a special guest in our classroom last week. Grace came to help us with our lessons, and she brought lots of new and fun ideas. During phy. ed. class, she taught us a new game with the parachutes. She helped us make Easter Bunny baskets for our classroom Easter party. She added a new twist to our spelling practice game, "hot seat," by becoming our very own game show hostess. Thank you, Grace, for spending your spring break with us. We sure miss you!
