May is a very special month named in honour of Mary, mother of Jesus. So appropriately, we celebrate Mother’s Day this month. May is a time for us to recognize the gift of motherhood and the gift of life. There is no greater human love than the love of a mother. Make the entire month, not only May 8th, a time of celebration for our moms. We give thanks for the special influence they have in our lives and the care, love, and patience they provide for us.
As we move into our final months of the school year, we look forward to the excitement which comes with year-end. Can you believe that there are less than nine weeks of school left until summer holidays?
Students will be focused on preparing for year-end tests, performance tasks and various other assignments, giving them the opportunity to demonstrate all that they have learned during the school year. We also start to enjoy the warmth of the season and are already anticipating special classroom field trips and much more. These are all signs of energy and new life. Please keep your calendars as a readily available reference for all the upcoming activities.
