Second Grade Weekly Update

Looking Ahead:

The children have approximately two weeks to practice their report at home and here at school. I will send home a copy of the report next week so the children can practice every night. They will need their costume made or purchased by 10/31/17. The day after Halloween is All Saints Day, 11/1/17. After mass on November 1st, the children will present their report from the altar dressed as their saint.

Due to the two half days last week and the short week this week, we will continue the story in Reading and Language Arts. We will have our test this Thursday 10/19.
