K-1 News 

Dear K-1 Parents,

Thank you for a wonderful teacher appreciation week. The food and treats provided from PTO were much appreciated. Each one of our students is a gift to us, and we thank you for sending them to St. Thomas.

Our K-1 class will be leading the last school Mass of the year on Thursday, May 23rd. Mass readings were sent home earlier this week for those students participating that day. Thank you for practicing the readings with your child over the next two weeks. We will be working on them at school as well.

On Thursday, May 16th, our future kindergarteners will be visiting our classrooms. We look forward to spending the morning with our new friends.

School Spirit Week is May 13-17. Please refer to the Spirit Week schedule or Tiger Tales for more details on each day. This is always a fun and exciting week for our students. It would be great to have 100% participation to honor our 8th grade students. For those of you interested, the 8th Grade Graduation will be Friday, May 17th at 6pm at St. Thomas Church. All are welcome to attend.

We hope you had a blessed Mother’s Day weekend,
Mrs. Dodd and Mrs. Elliott
