Second Grade Weekly Update

Looking Ahead:

All Saints’ Day pageant went wonderfully! I am so proud of everyone. Their hard work and dedication really showed during the pageant on Tuesday. Thank you to all the parents for helping make it a great success. Thank you for the kind card, flowers and Starbucks!

This week we will begin practicing the Act of Contrition, in preparation for their First Reconciliation. They will have about a month to memorize this prayer. I will be asking them to practice as part of their homework every night.

If you haven’t signed up for a conference time, please do so. Parent-teacher conferences are this week Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. All three days will be half days. Follow the link below.

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