Dear Falcon Families.
There is great excitement in the air as all are beginning to sense that the end of the school year is almost here. Please continue to check the calendar and teacher blogs regularly because there are so many events in the days ahead.
Today we honor Mary, the Mother of God, at the May Crowning Prayer Service. I love the day because it focuses on our eighth graders, a very talented and enthusiastic group of young people and on our mothers, grandmothers, godmothers and all of the women who have helped shape our lives, our dreams, and our values.
Looking ahead to next week, please know that all of the appointments for the Beau Dowling Blood Drive on Sunday are filled. However, if you can give blood, please go to the Life Source Center at 95th and Cicero and mention Beau’s name. Any donation for the next two weeks will be credited to Beau’s Blood Drive. We are, as always, so grateful for your support.
Next Tuesday, please plan to spend an hour or so at the last Family School Meeting of the year. We are adding a festive touch with “libations” (mini-wine tasting, a refreshing new sangria, and beer) to complement food sampling from Gilhooleys. We are seriously considering using Gilhooleys to provide our daily lunch program...
