St. Edward School Happenings

Library – Mrs. Bot

Mrs. Bot shared some “April Fools” picture book covers. Many students were able to see what was wrong rather quickly. The following week we read the book, “Simon of Cyrene and the Legend of the Easter Egg” that was written by Terri Degazelle who was going to make an author visit April 10th. However, the weather changed the plan for her to visit our school. The children enjoyed this German legend about how Simon’s eggs changed colors after he was made to help Jesus carry the cross. Each egg color tells a part of Jesus’ life. It’s hard to believe but we are in our final nine weeks of school! Students are working towards their final AR goals for the school year. Don’t stop reading over the summer though. Read what you want and enjoy where those books take you! “Books are a uniquely portable magic.” – Stephen King

Music-Mrs. Rybinski

It still doesn’t feel like spring, but the spring concert is only 5 weeks away. All the grades will be working on their recital pieces for the next few weeks. Be sure to “save the date” (May 22). The Easter season is finally here, too, so expect that we will be singing “joyfully to the Lord” in church throughout the rest of April and May.
