Ms Ryan still looking for volunteers to help in the library.  So much great new literature for our children to read - the quicker they are catalogued, the quicker they out for them to devour.  

A special thank you to members of the EcoTeam for sweeping the mulch in the Kindergarten area and for the new butterfly decorations.   If you happen to arrive early for Kindergarten pick and feel like doing a quick sweep there is a broom and dust pan hanging on the fence.  Many hands make light work!!!  All efforts are hugely appreciated! 

May the week bring sunshine and warmth!  Have a terrific one and please let me know if you have any questions, concerns or ideas as to how we can make St. Leo even more awesome!
