Happy Easter Season ! 

April 24- April 28

In the Catholic Church, Easter is celebrated for 50 days. In honor of the Easter Season, we will sing the Celtic Alleluia everyday. We will also be mindful of Pope Francis' teaching on keeping the Earth clean and protected. This week, we will plant zinnia seeds. These flowers are not just beautiful but they are important to butterflies and bees- who are small creatures but very important  to our ecology. We will be learning about the life cycle of the butterfly . We will watch a wonderful puppet that starts as a caterpillar, sleeps in a chrysalis and wakes as a butterfly!We will use our scarves to move like a butterfly. In art we will paint butterfly wings and see symmetry ! Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and we will spend time in the fresh air. The playground not only offers a place to exercise large muscles but we learn to be good citizens. We learn to wait our turn, follow safety rules and get on line when the whistle sounds! Stopping play is challenging sometimes. Don't forget to send children with sturdy sneakers and pray for nice weather.
