An Irish Blessing

May the friendships you make,
Be those which endure,
And all of your grey clouds
Be small ones for sure.
And trusting in Him
To Whom we all pray,
May a song fill your heart,
Every step of the way!

In a spirited nod to St. Patrick's Day, our Lower School students were mesmerized by a performance of Irish dancing on Friday by two of our Dragons.
