Last week was incredibly busy and amazing. We learned about our patron Saint Patrick, went to mass as a school community, had a scavenger hunt and shared the wonderful leprechaun traps the students made. We placed our traps on the school staircase and left them over the weekend to see if we can trap a leprechaun!
Our Lenten activities continue this week and we will be learning about the Stations of the Cross. Also for the Lent service this week, they are asking students to bring a small flashlight if possible.
It will be a short week because interviews are Thursday night and Friday morning. I look forward to meeting with all of you. Please note that each interview is 10 minutes. I will try to keep everything running smoothly and on time. Please let me know if these times don't work and you would like to arrange a different time after school or at lunch.
Kiwanis Choral Speech is in the SPFA Gym on Tuesday March 28th. Students are asked to wear black pants and a white short sleeved t-shirt (plain; no markings on front of shirt). Girls are asked to wear their hair pulled back away from their face. It is $2.00 per person and people should come a few minutes early to ensure seating. I will let you know as soon as I know the exact time of their performance.
The Crocodile’s Toothache
by Shel Silverstein
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?
