Here's what we are doing..

Sunday - wear uniform to mass (we are a 3 parish school) and Open House at school

Monday - Put student made "luminaries" out in the hallways to connect all classrooms with "light". The art classes also drew on the sidewalks with chalk to reflect this year's theme. It rained so I hope some of it is still there! It's also a dress down "Green and Gold" day where students can wear jeans and a shirt in the school colors if they wore their uniform to mass on Sunday. Ofcourse, we have no way of knowing if they really did or not unless we happen to see them there so we just have to take the parents word for it when they send in a note.
:-)

Tuesday - We will read success stories of saints and heros in class and will have an "international" rosary with parents who speak different languages saying a part of the rosary in their language. We do several decades ( I can't remember how many) and it is so hard for my first graders to sit through it, especially since they don't understand the languages, but it is nice.

Wednesday - There will be a magic show for the K - 4th grade classes and a drama presentation for the 5th -8th. We also write letters of thanks to people who help our school (priests, school board members, etc.)

Thursday - Grandparents join us at flag and in classroom until we go to mass. From 9:30 - 11:00 we will have another open house so that prospective parents can wander around while classes are in session. This is not my favorite day. :-)

Friday - We have our annual jog-a-thon to raise money for the school and have fun. Then the kids are served a pizza lunch and sent home early (yay!)
