RE Holds a Special Remembering Circle
Memorial Day Weekend

After the Children Are Sung Out of the Service
The Sunday of this Memorial Day weekend, all the children in RE will be together for a Remembering Circle led by member and former parent-child educator Tracy Blender. They will talk about people who have passed, including PUC’s recent administrator, Craig Block, who was known to many of the children and who passed in December. The focus of the holiday, those who die in service to their community and country, will be discussed. Together they will talk about why this happens and what it might mean. If your child thinks he or she might like to talk about the passing of special people, he or she is invited to bring a photograph. All the children will have an opportunity to talk about their own now-gone people, if they choose. Parents & grandparents are invited to attend. Of course, children who may be very sensitive about this topic are always welcome in child care during the activity. Please let RE chair Michele Bethune know that morning and she will explain how.
