Second Grade Weekly Update

Looking Ahead:

This week I sent home a copy of the Act of Contrition along with a letter asking the students to practice every night as part of their homework. The children will be tested on the prayer before Thanksgiving break. This must be memorized for their First Reconciliation. Their First Reconciliation is scheduled during an All School Reconciliation (Grades 2-8), on Thursday, 12/14.

There is no school for Thanksgiving break, 11/20-11/24. School will resume on Monday, 11/27.

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