An exciting change happened this year at Resurrection School; the Junior Kindergarten program was switched into a Transitional Kindergarten program. Making this change has given the “Lil’ Peacemakers” opportunities to join the rest of the school for Friday Mass, participate in fundraisers like the Walk-A-Fun, and most importantly, get their own “big buddies.” The sixth grade class, who has had to share buddies with other classes in previous years, benefited from this change by getting their very own “little buddies.”
On March 2, these two classes came together to celebrate Read Across America Day, a nationally-supported reading day in schools and libraries that honors Dr. Seuss on his birthday. TK and sixth grade students read classic Dr. Seuss books together and topped-off the morning by making their very own “Cat in the Hat” hats! This was an exercise in following directions, working together, and being patient. It was a morning full of reading and crafts, as well as witnessing the blessing of having older students guiding and teaching the youngest students. The only thing missing was some Green Eggs and Ham, but we’ll save that for another year!
