Second Grade Weekly Update

Looking Ahead:

Thank you to all the parents that came to parent teacher conferences. It was a pleasure to meet with each of you! Thank you for sharing your children with me.

We will continue 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.

Due to the three half days this week, we did not finish up Animals Building Homes. That test has been postponed. It will be next week, Tuesday, 11/15.

Please join us at mass on Sunday at 9AM. Our 6th/7th grade class will be leading the mass. We hope to see you there!

Reminder: Please send in canned goods or other non perishable food items for our canned food drive. We have a goal of 1000 cans for the entire school! Send in all cans by Thursday, 11/17. We appreciate your participation in helping feed the hungry.

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