Second Grade Weekly Update

Looking Ahead:

I sent home the large index card today with a notice regarding the saint report. This index card is where they will write the final report. This is what they will memorize for the All Saints Day Pageant on November 1st. They have a week and a half to finish their report. The due date is October 5th.

Thank you to those that volunteered so far! I have the door poster covered for the next three months. Please let me know if you are interested in any of the other months. If so, please email me which month you would like to cover. If you are able to help with tearing pages out of books and collating, please le me know. This is something that can be done from home.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at
