This Holy Week the fourth grade made eggs in every form. They dyed eggs with their Pre-k buddies. Mrs. Di Gangi came in and guided them in making cookie eggs. Mrs. Pogoda demonstrated how to make pysanka, Ukrainian eggs . The class had a coloring contest and had to color a paper pysanka . And to top it off they make paper mache eggs using napkins and plastic eggs.
Of course, all these Easter eggs represent the Risen Christ. The symbolism of rebirth is carried through in the egg. As the chick broke through its shell to be born, so Our Lord comes forth, from the tomb, bringing new life to us. We remember this in every egg we designed.
Christ is risen. Indeed He is risen!
