Second Grade Weekly Update

Looking Ahead:

I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter and time off of school. I hope all the students feel refreshed and are ready to finish the year off strong!

First Communion is this Saturday, April 29th, at 10 AM! The students need to be here no later than 8:15 AM. Please report to the classroom, as the photographer will be starting the studio photos at this time. I will be sending home materials for a First Communion Banner that will be due Friday. Directions and materials will be sent home Tuesday.

Reminder of the appropriate attire guidelines:

  • Girls: An appropriate white dress, white tights or white socks and white dress shoes. Shoulders must be covered and shoes must be closed toe. NO spaghetti straps or sleeveless dresses. If the dress is sleeveless, a sweater must be worn. A veil or flowers in their hair is optional. Gloves are optional as well, and must be removed before receiving the Eucharist. NO MAKE-UP.
