More importantly Easter Sunday helps us to remember that Jesus came back from the dead. Although he is not physically among us, He is still present in our hearts. This week we will begin incubating chicken eggs in Mrs. Lehman’s classroom. We will get to enjoy this miracle of “New Life” with their class. We will enjoy marking our egg calendars as we wait for their arrival. They will incubate for 21 days. They represent new life and new beginnings. We use eggs because they represent a brand new life inside the shell. Easter also coincides with spring, which helps us to welcome new life after the darkness of winter. We will also enjoy dyeing hard-boiled eggs, painting eggs, and hiding egg treats for our buddies will make for an egg-citing week. Chalet Dental visits us on Thursday with dental health tips and Friday we will enjoy a play in O'Donnell Hall put on by our very own eighth graders. Open House at MMSA this Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m. Spread the word to friends and neighbors about our great Catholic school.
