Sharing the Good News


At the end of this school year, we had two important graduations -- our Eighth Graders (see earlier posts on this page) and our Kindergartners!

Let me tell you about our sweet, smart, joyful Kindergartners!

Mrs. Docherty and Ms. Steiger -- our Kindergarten team -- and Father Bob, proudly presented each of the students with his or her diploma after the class took turns reading the message they had penned themselves: “What I Liked Best About Kindergarten …”
Here are some of the messages they read:

"Snack and recess were my favorite."
"I loved hatching the butterflies and letting them free."
"I liked Ms. Emily's 10 little cookies rhyme!"
"Playing with friends everyday!"
"Lunch time was always my favorite!!"

[When I find a new one, I'll post it!]

Each of the rising First Graders took graduation photos, too. I have posted several. See the photo below of one young graduate posing near some colorful school props: The number three on one side (chosen -- perhaps -- because there are three boys in his family) and a large stack of books on the other. Well, I’ll bet the books signify that every member of the 2016 Kindergarten graduating class moves up to First Grade as an emergent reader!

Hugs and humor, cake and coffee, capped our celebratory afternoon.

Dear Rising First Graders -- We Miss You Already!

Our two-day celebration culminated in the Eighth Grade Graduation Mass and Ceremony on Wednesday evening -- led by Father Bob and our school principal, Maria Kelly. Filled with laughter and with tears, we honored our beloved Eighth Grade students, heard a clever tribute delivered by Class Valedictorian, Kaley Newlon, and revealed our “Star Award” recipient, Jessica Herrity (more on these two Nativity Stars in a later post!).

Hugs and humor, cake and coffee, capped our celebratory evening.
