I keep reminding the students that Easter is not just celebrated on Easter Sunday but for 50 more days following! The last day of the Easter Season this year is after the last day of school on June 9th, so we will continue to celebrate with "Alleluias" ringing through the halls until the very end! 

6th grade: We are focused on our responsibility, through solidarity of the church, to care for all of God's creations. We have discussed in detail the current research study that revealed that there are currently over 1 million of God's creations at risk of extinction.

May is the month of Our Blessed Mother and we appreciated the traditional May Crowning celebration as it correlates to our current studies. Mary is only mentioned a few times in the Bible but plays such a paramount role in our faith as we pray for her intercessions. I always tell the kids, if you really, really want something, who do you go to to ask  first? Your MOM (usually), so why not ask the mother of Jesus too! 

8th grade: The countdown is ON and we can feel it! The 8th grade is doing a lot of reflecting this time of year as I am do my best to make sure they are equipped with the necessary "tools of our faith" to carry them into high school! I said it, HIGH SCHOOL! Hard to believe but they are so ready and we are enjoying the culmination of their Catholic education here at St. Perpetua by ending on positive notes.

Only May SAINT REPORTS are the last for this school year.

Don't forget your WORLD OF CHANGE monthly donation! (minimum $2). Its a good idea to donate extra during Lent for your "almsgiving promises". **7th grade has a new
