The class has created a painted
canvas in the spirit of Easter and spring. They have had a lot of help from our
own Jessie Sousa. The children have made the petals of Dogwood blooms with their
thumb prints to commemorate this glorious spring beauty �The Dogwood.� All the
students have participated to make this a lovely art piece for any room, not
just something you will put in a closet. We truly believe this will bring out
the high bidders! So get the checkbooks ready!
The Legend of the Dogwood
Jesus time, the dogwood grew
To a stately size and a lovely hue.
strong & firm its branches interwoven
For the cross of Christ its
timbers were chosen.
Seeing the distress at this use of their
Christ made a promise which still holds good:
"Never again shall
the dogwood grow
Large enough to be used so
Slender & twisted, it shall be
like the cross for all to see.
As blood stains the petals marked in brown
center wears a throny crown.
All who see it will remember me
on a cross from the dogwood tree.
Cherished and protected this tree shall
A reminder to all of my agony." - Unknown
