Dear Parents,

What a wonderful talent show this year! They just get better and better. The students enjoyed painting the stars and setting up the gym. I thought band, choir, and each performer did wonderfully! Thank you for your support of the wonderful grilled burgers and the rest of the food.

Our walk for the Senior Center was very successful. Students raised enough money to  buy at least 120 meals for seniors. The students also had a wonderful time playing at the park. They were served their choice of ham, turkey, salami, or bologna sandwich, chips, drink, granola bar, and fruit chews.

Our standardized testing had to be moved to the week  of May 11. Please make sure your child is present and well rested. Our cave field trip is on Friday that week (May 15), but we should be finished by then. I still need another driver for the field trip. If you can help, please let me know.

Our class is working on a simulated cave project. They will put a “cave” on the stage and will give tours by flashlight to other grades. They are finishing up a “powerpoint” type of presentation on their section of research to present to the class.

May 20th is 8th grade graduation at 6:30. Band will play and choir will sing. There is usually cake served afterwards.

The last day of school is May 22. We have chapel at 9:00 with awards presentation. We will dismiss by 11:00, but students are free to leave after this program.

Mr. Grass asked me to share the following in your newsletter. Students and staff presented him with $499 and some change. What a help this will be for him. He was truly surprised.

Thanks: Parents, students and faculty, thank you for the wonderful cake and money tree that you gave me. What a awesome surprise! All of you kept the secret well, and that made the whole thing so special. I'm very blessed to be apart of this great community here at St. Paul’s. This was truly a wonderful gift, that meant so much to me. Thank you to everyone and God’s blessings.

Mr. Grass

God’s blessings to all of you. If you have questions or concerns, please let me know.
