Second Grade Weekly Update

Looking Ahead:.

Thank you to all the students and families that participated in the Earth Day poster project. All the projects looked great!

Please join us at Mass this Sunday, 3/18, at 10:30 AM. The third grade class will be helping at Mass with readings and gifts along with choir singing.

I will continue holding a pretest every Monday for the spelling words introduced that week. If your child does not miss any words on the pretest, I will give them a challenge list of words for the week. The students that receive the challenge list will use those words for their spelling tic tac toe homework throughout the week.

If you would like to donate something, we are running low on Kleenex and could use some more.

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