May 15 - 19

Dear Grade Four Families,

I'm sorry I wasn't able to blog last weekend.  It was a busy time for my family as my youngest sibling, Julie Ann, got married to Patrick Guevara (Miss Guevara's older brother) last Saturday.  We also had 35 family members fly in for the special day from the Philippines, California, and New Jersey.  It was a wonderful time and it was nice to catch up with my many uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews.

We also had lots of fun in class this week.  We celebrated Fr. Mark's birthday on Thursday.  We gave him a special card, a birthday blessing, and sang to him with joy and enthusiasm.  I think he really enjoyed it!  On Friday, we spent our PE time playing outside since Mr. Kelly was sick.  I'm so glad I was able to capture some awesome pictures of the students.  You can find it posted on our Class Dojo.  Finally, we prepared something special for Mother's Day.  Moms, I hope you really enjoy your present.
