First week back complete, and it was a great week. It was so awesome to hear all the excitement around Spring Break and what students had enjoyed doing. This week we spent some time talking about Easter and why we celebrate this day. We read through the story, and completed a craft; Mrs. Shinness taught them about Palm Sunday and what Hosanna means, and we reenacted what it may have been like for Jesus as he entered Jerusalem (in chapel); and we had a school wide Easter service this afternoon. I hope that you all enjoy the Easter long weekend, remembering and reflecting on all that Jesus accomplished for us by going to the cross!

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘he has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
