Weekly Update for May 27-31, 2013
1. Monday through Friday May 27-31, 2013: Enjoy Your Summer!
Sister Joel Prayer for the Week (Summer Prayer):
Lord, I need to let go of always being busy and, at times, just to relax. May each rest-time be a sacrament for me. May my time of doing nothing, of letting go, remind me that it is you, God, who is bringing about the kingdom, and the more I can let you do it, the more beautifully and gracefully the age of justice and peace can come into this tired world. May each short time of leisure renew my spirit, fill my heart with insights and restore my body. Amen
Ms. Lulu Courtyard Dedication:
We dedicated the elementary courtyard on Wednesday in honor of Ms. Lulu Brown. Everyone who knew Ms. Lulu immediately loved her and I and our teachers are no exception to that. We all loved Ms. Lulu. Ms. Lulu loved our elementary school and our courtyard and was so excited during the month of May for May Crowning and our butterfly ball. It was only fitting that we dedicate a place she loved so much in her honor. We love you Ms. Lulu, we miss you and we know you are praying for all of us. I want to thank Ms. Lulu’s family and friends for attending the ceremony you being there was a privilege to all of us and we thank you.
Pre-K and Kindergarten Graduation:
On Tuesday we held our Pre-K and Kindergarten graduation in St. Anthony Church. What a wonderful ceremony. The kids showed out what they learned throughout the year and presented students with the perfect attendance awards and young Christian awards. Ms. Tricia Bertrand, Ms. Maggie Ledoux, Ms. Dayna LaFleur, Ms. Gwen Zaunbrecher, Ms. Suzanne Wimberley, Ms. Mandy Fruge and Ms. Erica Zaunbrecher did a wonderful job with all the kids. They are special teachers and aides and it is clear to everyone they love working with our youngest students. I want to say thank you to all the parents for a wonderful year. I will cherish the moments with your children and always be humbled by the fact that you allow me the opportunity to be a part of your child’s life. Thank you for all you do.
A Message from Ms. Kim Thompson Regarding Box Tops for Education:
I would like to thank everyone who has helped with the collection of Box Tops for Education. I ask that you please continue to collect the tops over our summer break. Please try to clip the tops on the dotted line. I have to spend hours of time cutting because the company will not accept the tops if not clipped the correct way.
In addition to Box Tops, we also collect Community Coffee labels and Labels for Education which is found on many soups and sauces. Our school is sent a check from Box tops, Community coffee and Labels for Education which lets us choose from different supplies. This past year we chose art supplies for Sister Phyllis to use with the children.
You can send your Tops and Labels to school at the start of the new school year. Thanks again for supporting St. Edmund.

St. Edmund Catholic School is proud to announce we are looking into beginning an after school care program called Jay Care. This program will run from 3:00pm through 5:30pm Monday through Friday. The children attending Jay Care will receive an after school snack, play time and work on homework. All children must be students of St. Edmund Catholic School. If you are interested in this after school program please contact the elementary or high school office for more details.
A Message from Ms. Nikki Sonnier:
This summer I am offering a summer tutoring program that will focus on reading comprehension and note taking skills. We will use the books on the students' summer reading lists. This way students will learn valuable skills to use in all of their classes and their ACT tests. They will also be reading their summer reading books at the same time.
I have found that these are two areas where many students are lacking. Students who attend will be expected to read a certain amount between sessions and take notes on what they have read. We will discuss what they have read, go over what they should have written in their notes, view resources that will help them understand the time period in which the book is set when needed, and focus on what is important to the story as well as other elements students need to know. This will improve their performance in their English classes, their ACT test, and any other course where they have to read and comprehend material. We will also do sample ACT reading passages to begin each session to help them become more comfortable with the type of passages they will have on the actual ACT test.
The cost will be $25.00 per child per session; a $25.00 discount will be given to parents who pay for entire program in advance. Sessions will be held once a week in my classroom on the following Tuesdays, June 11, June 18, June 25, July 9, July 16, and July 23. It is okay if a student is not able to attend all the sessions. A reading schedule has also been sent to you so that students will know what they have to have read by what date. Session times will be as follows:
Dual Enrollment 8-9 AM
English I 9-10 AM
English II 10-11 AM
English III (non honors) 11 AM- 12 PM
English IV (H) 1PM - 2PM
English III (H) 2PM - 3PM
English IV (NH) 3PM - 4PM
Mrs. Nikki Sonnier
I would like to thank everyone for all you did for St. Edmund Catholic School this school year. It has been a very stressful year where we faced many challenges. With your help we were able to carry-on and achieve many wonderful and positive things. Your children were wonderful as always. I want you to know that I love them all and I always tried to do my best for them. I say this every year but it is true “they teach me more than I could ever teach them’. It has been my pleasure to work with a great group of teachers and a wonderful group of children. I care about them deeply and I thank you that you give me the opportunity to spend this special time with them.
God Bless and have a great summer.
