Easter Vacation!

Dear Eighth Grade Parents and Students,

Once again, I apologize for the late blog, but the Yearbook ~ 2015, took all of my weekend again.  The good news is that it is now finished and with the publisher, since Monday night. Phew!

Congratulations to all my Eighth Graders who produced wonderful inventions and art for the Science Inventions/Art Fair, last Thursday night.  I was thrilled and impressed by your inventive and creative minds.  GREAT JOB, Eighth Graders!  A special “Thank You!” to Miss Lida, our Middle School Science teacher, for her guidance, help, and support in this great event.  “Thank You!” to all the other teachers at O.M.M.S. who were involved.  Finally, “Thank You!” to all the parents and relatives who attended in support of your children.

This week is a very busy week for my Eighth Graders, as we have to practice for The Stations of the Cross, which they will host on Thursday.  In addition to this, we have to rehearse for The Passion, which they will reenact on Friday.  These two events will take up the bulk of our classes this week.  If time permits, for Literature on DVD, we will finish watching West Side Story.  I am so proud of my Eighth Graders…they are AMAZING!

Reminders: 1. My Eighth Graders will present The Stations of the Cross, in the Mission’s gardens, on Thursday, between 9:00a.m. and 11:30a.m.  All are welcome to attend.

2. My Eighth Graders will reenact The Passion, on Friday, at noon, in the Serra Center.  All are welcome to attend.

3. We are almost sold out of Yearbooks.  Order now to avoid disappointment.

No homework this week!

Have a wonderful Easter Break.  Your children have worked extremely hard this year, and they deserve a break.  Please keep them safe during this vacation.  They are precious!

Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and strength, use it to create.

Happy Easter!  Enjoy your vacation with your children.
