I will be scheduling regular Zoom meetings for every Tuesday beginning April 21 at 11:00. I will also be scheduling “office hours” every Friday beginning April 24 from 11:00 -11:30. All Zoom meetings are certainly optional on your part but I do look forward to seeing all my little friends. The Friday office hours are just for the kids to pop in and out and chat with me one-on-one or with a small group. It’s also a great time to ask me any questions about the assigned classwork. I’m happy to hear some reading too!


I love all the pictures! Please keep them coming!


I am available for email communication ANYTIME!


First graders (and Mrs. Cincilla) just love funny jokes and riddles! Give this one a try:

Question: What kind of lion never roars?

Prayer for Mothers

Dear God, thank You for the gift of our Mothers!

Thank you that our Mothers always believe in us, no matter what.

Thank You that they always trust, always hope, and always care – in short,

they always love us, just like You!

Please bless our Mothers with the unmistakable gift of Your love, O Lord.

May each of them feel Your love in their hearts, Your peace in their

minds, and Your joy in their spirits this day.

Through the intercession of our Blessed Mother Mary, we ask You to refresh our

Mothers and fill them again with Your Holy Spirit.

May their families surround them and may their children rise up and

call them blessed. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Happy Mother’s Day!!
