6W June News

Graduation Day is almost here.  The Class of 2018 has worked so hard, and I will miss every one of them.

We celebrated with some special events.  Christina and Ava led the whole school at our annual May Procession to honor the Blessed Mother.  Special thanks go to Father Kelley for leading us in a decade of the Rosary.  We will miss him at our celebrations next year.

Last week the sixth graders left the building to visit the Seacoast Science Center in Rye, Science Day at Canobie Lake Park in Salem, and Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge.  We had a great time, and this year the weather was A Plus and Beyond for all three trips!  Thanks so much to all of the parents for chaperoning on the trips.

There are just a few more things that we have to finish up before we say goodbye.  Grade Six will be presenting their oral reports on the country they have been researching this semester.  One more book report will be completed in school.  The Jeopardy Grand Champion will be chosen in the final game.  We will be planning and practicing for our Promotion Ceremony.

Everyone is excited for the special events during the last week of school.  Our class will have a special retreat in school.  Connor Prangley, a St. Chris alumnus, will speak to the students about his mission trip to Africa when he was at Bishop Guertin.  Snack and lunch will be provided, and this will be a free dress day.  Sixth grade parents will join the class for a luncheon and presentation of awards.  Students will leave with their parents.

Students should be at the school lobby by 6:30 PM on Friday, June 8th.  We will assemble in front of the church for the official class picture.  Parents are welcome to come outside to take pictures at this time.  If it rains, the picture will be taken in the school.

The hallway of our wing is full of some amazing projects that were done by Grade Five.  Each student built a structure from Colonial Boston, Colonial Philadelphia, or Washington D.C.  Great job, Grade Five.  You are ready to move up to be the leaders of our student body in September!!

I am looking forward to seeing parents, family, and friends of our graduates in the coming days, and I wish you all a wonderful summer!

Happy Summer,

Mary Lou Wefers
