Happy Mothers’ Day!

Dear Seventh Grade Parents and Students,

HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY!  I hope all our mothers at O.M.M.S., have had a very happy and special day, full of love, fun, surprises, and lots of laughter.  You are all AMAZING MOTHERS!  Every day, but especially today, MOTHERS’ DAY, you deserved to be pampered and put up on a pedestal of happiness and love.  ENJOY!

A HUGE THANK YOU to all my parents and students who, during Teachers’ Appreciation Week, showered me with daily delicious cookie treats, melt-in-the-mouth chocolate, Starbucks cards, great lip balm, fizzy soda, ripe avacados, beautiful flowers, very clever and funny puns, and an incredible Gaelic greeting.  I felt so special and so surprised each day during Teachers Appreciation Week.   MANY THANKS!  THANK YOU also to the PTG and parents who organized and brought breakfast treats for us every day, and an amazing luncheon on Friday.  Everything was delicious, sweet, and delighted all the teachers at OMMS.  We truly appreciate your very generous and thoughtful hearts.  THANK YOU!

This week in literature, we will continue to read The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.  In addition to this, we will continue to work in the classroom workbooks.  We will also review the Literary Terms, in preparation for one more test, which will be given during the first week of June.  The next writing assignment will be “Write a Narrative Poem based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  I will discuss it with my students this coming week.  Rehearsals are going very well.  Please remind your child to learn his/her lines.

This week in history, my Seventh Graders will watch a documentary about Greek history and traditions.  In addition to this, they will continue to learn about the history of Greece.


1. The annual Variety Show is scheduled for Wednesday, May 13.  All are welcome to attend.

2. The Crowning of Mary will take place after Mass on Friday, May 15.  All are welcome to attend.

The homework for this week is as follows:

  • Spelling Test of Lesson 18 in Wordly Wise on Thursday, May 14.
  • Complete all the exercises in Lesson 18 of Wordly Wise.

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.

Enjoy the rest of your special day, Mothers, and have a grand week ahead.
