Second Grade Weekly Update

Looking Ahead:

We had a great field trip to the Dinosaur Museum! Thank you to all the parents who were able to join us. It is a great museum and many exciting things to learn.

Our First Communion Retreat is coming up in a few weeks. Please let me know if you are able to volunteer for the First Communion Retreat. It will be Wednesday, March 15th from 9AM-12PM. I will need parents to help with crafts and other activities the students will be doing. If you are only able to help a portion of the time, that will be helpful as well. Their First Holy Communion is approaching quickly and it is an exciting time for the children. It is encouraged that they attend weekly Sunday mass as always, but especially as they are preparing for this important sacrament.

The students have been taking the math 1-minute timed test for a couple of months. Please continue to practice math facts every night with your child. Flashcards are a great tool for memorizing them.

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