  " The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace."  
June 5th, 2019
From Mrs. Rowley       
 
This Friday we will bid farewell to our 8 th grade class. We will celebrate their time at St. Ambrose School with Mass, graduation and a reception in the gym. We wish them well as they go on to their next great adventure. We will also say "au revoir" to our Kindergarten class who will have their finale on Friday morning.
 
Next week is a short week for the rest of the school. Wednesday we will go to Mass at 9:00 am, followed by awards, and 11:00 am dismissal. Please keep our school community in your prayers throughout the summer. School office hours in July will be 9:00 am-1:00 pm.
 
As you know, Mrs. Pat Kiernan is retiring after twenty eight years of teaching, and sixteen years of service to our school. In order to celebrate her time with us we will have an open house reception on Friday, June 14 from 6:00 pm-9:00 pm in the parish hall. We are asking for donations of appetizers: if your last name begins with A-N please consider donating savory appetizers; if your last name begins with O-Z please consider donating a dessert. We could also use some help with the set-up at 3:00 pm. This would be a great opportunity for Confirmation service hours. Let's give Mrs. Kiernan a great send-off.  
 
This is the last Buzz of the school year, so let me take this opportunity to thank Mrs. Rosie McGuire for being such a wonderful editor for the last four years. Her weekly dedication is very much appreciated, to say nothing of the gentle reminders when my submission was late! We wish her and her beautiful family much happiness as they move out of the area. We are grateful to Mrs. Nichole Priddy for stepping up as the next Buzz editor.

I wish you all a blessed summer. To those who are returning next year, we wish you a wonderful summer and look forward to your return. For those who are moving on, thank you for the time that you shared your children with us, and our best wishes go with you.

From the Editor

I have thoroughly enjoyed being the Buzz Editor for the past four years and will definitely miss it. Our whole family has loved being part of the St. Ambrose Community. The friends that we have all made will sorely be missed. May you all have a blessed and relaxing Summer. Best wishes.
