Whiz Kids’ Names: Nathan Lynch, Darrin Edstrom and Joey O’Connell.
Whiz Kids’ Grade, School: Second, Sunday religious educational classes at St. Mary’s School.
Whiz Kids’ Accomplishments: The boys were among this month’s First Communion Class at St. John Neumann Church. On May 7, the boys received the holy sacrament at the 10 a.m. Mass. Each child received a certificate from St. Mary’s parish upon first receiving the Eucharist.
Whiz Kids’ Keys to Success: The boys’ teachers prepared them with studies of the sacrament which included a parent/child retreat on Feb. 5.
Kathi Lynch, Nathan’s mother, said the parents also were sent back to school as a way to help guide their children through the sacrament. They also were given literature to share with their children at home.
“As a parent I was thankful for the refresher Parent Instructional meeting given so we could better prepare our children,” she said in an email.
Nominated by: Parent Kathi Lynch.
