Weekly Update - March 10 - 14


This week we will continue with the Lent and St. Patrick's Day themes. There has been lots of talk and excitement about the Leprechaun Traps. I look forward to seeing them as they come in.

The conference manager is open on the 12th for parents to book interviews. If you find that none of the times work for you, I am happy to meet after school or at lunch on a different day.

Students have just started to practice one of their two poems for Kiwanis Festival. Our performance will be held in the  St. Patrick Fine Arts school gymnasium on Thursday April 3rd. I will give more details as we get closer to the date. Please take some time to go over the poem's words with your child.

Squirrel in the Rain

By Francis Frost

   The young squirrel's mother said, "Come out!

   See—it's raining all about!

   Wet silver's falling from a cloud!

   It's raining hard, it's raining loud!"


   The little squirrel ran down the tree

   "It's splashing rain all over me!

   It's raining here, it's raining there!

   It's raining in the trees' green hair,
   It's raining in the flowers' faces,

   It's raining in the grassy places,

   It's raining on my tail and nose

   And on my middle, I suppose!

   How wonderful of clouds to fly

   And give young squirrels a drink of sky!"
