May 30, 2019

May is the month of our Mother Mary.

In her honor we will continue to have a shrine for her in our classroom. Please bring in flowers, prayer books, rosaries, medals, statues, and/or anything else that helps us pray to Mary.

Each morning, I select a crown that a child has made. The person who made that crown comes up to place the crown on Mary as we say our prayers together.
