Second Grade Weekly Update

Looking Ahead:

Progress Reports will be ready for you today after 5 PM. Please remember to login to Gradelink over the weekend, print out your child’s grades (just the main page is fine), sign the printout, and return in your child’s Friday Folder by Monday, October 3rd. If you do not have access to a printer, please handwrite your child’s grades and sign that paper.

Please keep in mind your child’s saint report is due this Wednesday, October 5th. I sent a large index card home (last Friday) to write or glue a typed 5-7 sentence paragraph on. These important facts and information is what your child will be memorizing to recite on All Saint’s Day in front of the school and parish. We will have almost a month to practice. The costumes do not need to be complete until the last week of October.

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