This week was a very busy week. The Grade 8 students enjoyed a very fun filled day on Wednesday, May 24 as they went into NYC and toured Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum. From there we went to St. Patrick's Cathedral to attend 12:00 pm mass as Father Marc served as a co-celebrant. This made the mass very special for those of us who attended. The grade 8 students were then treated to the sensational musical, "Wicked." This was followed by dinner at Slattery's. Much thanks to Mrs. Klein, our grade 8 teacher, who organized everything! It was a trip to be remembered.

Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate with the grade 4 and 5 as they went to the Bronx Zoo in the rain on Thursday, May 25.

We had our final community HSA Meeting on Tuesday, May 23. Mrs. Bronwyn Fraser, president, Mrs. Vicki Kallok, first president and Mrs. Kathy Block, secretary all stepped down after years of service to the St. Therese School Community. Thank you ladies for all of the contributions you have made to the St. Therese School. It is a better place because of your efforts.

New officers will be named at our final Executive HSA Meeting on June 15. Biographies of candidates running for open positions are on the Friday Folder.

Our annual scholastic book fair run by our room parents and ladies of the HSA was a huge success! Thank you parents for participating.

Field Day will take place on Thursday, June 1.

On Monday, May 29th we celebrate Memorial Day. As we partake in our barbecues, parades, rest and relaxation over the weekend, let us make sure we take a few minutes and pray for our brave men and women in the armed services, and the police who keep us safe every day. Let's give thanks and pray especially for those who made the ultimate sacrifice, so that we can enjoy the freedoms we do in this great country we call the United States of America.

God bless,
