**Remember these programs give you hints, so if something turns a different color (red usually means misspelled—green means there’s a grammar mistake), use the clues to help you.

 HOWEVER, don’t be fooled by your computer—if you spell something correctly, but it’s a homophone, your program will not recognize it is wrong so DO NOT turn in your essay until YOU have read and reread it carefully.  Get into the habit now as you will be doing more and more like this as you move forward in school.

The Lord’s Prayer is led by Connor Wilson, Grade Two, and his sister, Abigail, Grade Four. I know big brother, Logan Wilson, Grade Six, assisted with the production of this video

The Pledge of Allegiance and Our song God Bless America is led by Kiora House. Thanks so much for the House children for creating so many lovely videos for our news broadcasts. Mom, Kiora, loves music just like you and Grandmom!!!!

In addition we have three birthday announcements this morning and we also have the introduction to a lovely song and lyrics from the 1050s.

Here is our link for today’s news:  https://youtu.be/l3vGEhLf6VY

Sister Judy did a magnificent job of creating a virtual May Crowning for our students.

She begins with reciting The Hail Mary.

She moves on to singing Hail Mary, Gentle Woman.  Sister Judy has a beautiful voice and she asks that you follow these words and sing a long with her.

                                                                     

Pope Francis Prayer to Blessed Mother During Covid-19

Follow Sister Judy as she recites this beautiful prayer asking the Blessed Mother to continue to shine her light on us through this difficult situation we are in:

O Mary,
you always shine on our path
as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,
who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of the Roman People,
know what we need,
and we are sure you will provide
so that, as in Cana of Galilee,
we may return to joy and to feasting
after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform to the will of the Father
and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who has taken upon himself our sufferings
and carried our sorrows
to lead us, through the cross,
to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.

Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.

May God continue to hold each of you, your family and friends very closely for good health and peace,

Janice DeCicco Fipp                                                                                                                                           Principal SJRS
