Weekly Update - March 13 - 17

Monday is a no school day because all of the Holy Spirit Division staff will be meeting at East C.C.H.S. for Spiritual Development Day.

Our fieldtrip to Green Haven is on Tuesday afternoon. The bus will leave the school about 12:40ish and arrive at Green Haven about 1:00. This fieldtrip fits it very nicely with our Science program because students learn all about plants. Thank you to the parents who will be joining us as chaperones.

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 15th 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 been practicing both of their poems for Kiwanis Festival. Our performance will be held in the  St. Patrick Fine Arts school gymnasium on Tuesday March 28th. 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.

The Crocodile’s Toothache 
 by   Shel Silverstein

The Crocodile went to the dentist
And sat down in the chair,
And the dentist said
, “Now tell me, sir,     
Why does it hurt and where?”
And the Crocodile said,
“I’ll tell you the truth,    
I have a terrible ache in my tooth.”
And he opened his jaws so wide,   so wide, 
That, the dentist……..he climbed right inside,
And the dentist laughed,
“Oh isn’t this fun?” As he pulled the teeth out, one by one.
And the Crocodile cried,
“You’re hurting me so!
Please put down your pliers and let me go.”
But the dentist laughed with a, "Ho, Ho, Ho"And he said,
“I still have twelve to go —
Oops, that’s the wrong one,   I confess,
But ……what’s one crocodile’s tooth….. more or less?”

Then suddenly……….  the jaws went……….  S N A P, 
And the dentist was gone, right off the map,          
And where he went one could only guess…              

To North or South or East or West…     
He left no forwarding address.            

But, what’s one dentist, more or less?
