St. Edward School Happenings
Music- Mrs. Kathleen Rybinski
Next week, Kindergarten and First Grade students will take a turn at leading the singing from the choir loft for our weekly mass (10:30 on Wednesday). This week the Second and Third graders welcomed Kindergarten and First Grade to our class to practice a couple of songs they will sing together. A great time was had by all (really). Fourth graders need to start thinking about joining band next fall. There will be an evening at the public school in the next week or two where they can try out different instruments to help them decide what they are interested in. Mr. Voit and someone from Music Street will be there to help. All the grades are still working on their concert pieces – we will spend next week practicing in the gym. A talent show open to all interested students is planned for May 29 — students should think about what they want to do and start working on their acts.
Library – Mrs. Jan Bot
As the school year comes to an end, the library is preparing for the final week of students checking out books. Thank you to families who think of the St. Edward school library when they are cleaning off their bookshelves. We appreciate it! Mrs. Bot is doing some weeding of books which is always difficult. Mrs. Bot will be returning as the librarian in the fall. Remember to READ this summer! I challenge students to read in places that summer allows, such as outside, in a park, by the lake, in a hammock, in a tree house and more. Enjoy your summer!
